From the 24th September, clubs are also required to display an official NHS QR code to support NHS Test and Trace. Leisure and Tourism – Clubs providing team sporting activities.
You can create your own Club NHS QR code using the link. PLEASE NOTE this is in addition to your club’s own track and trace, not instead of.
Some clubs have now decided that they are suspending rowing for various reasons. This is entirely the decision of the clubs and although it might not be something that an individual member wants, it has been done with the best of intentions and therefore please support your committee at a difficult time.

All clubs need to ensure that they have procedures in place should a member test positive for Covid who has been actively rowing / interacting with the club membership. In the event of this, what are the steps that would be taken and how are you going to ensure that the necessary members / community know?
The Covid advice / guidance can be found on the CPGA Website Covid page.


Thanks to all those who attended. A positive forum and a great way of sharing good practice and informing others about what has worked etc. There are currently no plans to hold more but should there be a requirement we will.
Key comments / info:

  • Most clubs are not currently rowing juniors, those that are have exclusive junior kit.
  • Most clubs are not running novice sessions.
  • A number of clubs are using a pump spray for cleaning.
  • Monitor potential local lockdowns and the implications for rowing.
  • Rule of 6 doesn’t apply to organised sport but need to be conscious that once rowing has finished should not be in a group of more than 6.
  • Disposing of waste once cleaning completed, most are allocating a member from that bubble to be responsible for waste disposal.
  • Clubs are mainly rowing in bubbles, these ideally should not cross. If there is cross over, this would affect everyone within the crossover bubbles.
  • Bubbles / crew details should be stored for 21 days for track and trace purposes, many are using google or similar online as they are safe and GDPR compliant.
