Welcome to Milton Keynes Rowing Club

Milton Keynes Rowing Club (MKRC) is based at Caldecotte Lake on the south side of the city, at the Water Sports Centre on Monellan Grove (map at the bottom of this page). We share access to the lake (which gives us around a 1 kilometre straight run) and a clubhouse with the Milton Keynes Sailing and Canoe Clubs.

We have an active Summer and Winter Programme of races, events and training schedules, weekends and mid-week, as well as social functions. This covers both water training (both rowing and sculling) and land based training (circuits and rowing machines).

Membership is varied and we encourage all levels of rowing and sculling ability, from experienced rowers to complete newcomers to the sport (for whom we run Learn to Row courses). We welcome people of all ages and abilities, from complete beginners through to experienced, competitive rowers. We also welcome supporters who perhaps may wish to take their sport a little less seriously or just help with the club's activities and have now introduced a Recreational Rowing squad.

So if you want to try out a new sport or rediscover the enjoyment of rowing and sculling, just come on down to the club during one of the training sessions where you will receive a friendly welcome or contact us by This email address is being protected from spambots.

World Masters GOLD for MKRC

Our second visit to the World Rowing Masters Championships (held this year in Copenhagen) again saw Milton Keynes Rowing Club return with a GOLD MEDAL and World Champion. Following on from her brilliant win in the British Rowing Masters Championships, our own Helen Marshall won her event, the Women's Masters C 1x.

This followed on from Helen, together with partner Jenny Searle, narrowly missing out on another gold, finishing second in the Women's Masters B2x- category.
