Thanks to the 70 clubs who completed the survey.  

We are all aware that the current situation has implications on our sport. Whilst some clubs have returned to rowing, some were waiting to see what September brought, others are still undecided and or not returning to the water until 2021.

Please note these figures were correct when the data was entered by clubs, it could have since changed.
The responses give the numbers of clubs rowing or not on the 1st October. Of 50 active clubs, 7 have juniors rowing.

Of the clubs rowing the number of crews / bubbles are shown below. Please note that some club although rowing do not have their full membership rowing e.g. clubs can have less than 50% of their rowing membership active.


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 do need to have the code even if it is people accessing the club / shed / container to work on the gigs make use of equipment.

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?

With the introduction of the Three Tier COVID Alert Levels – check Sport England for more info.

The Covid advice / guidance can be found on the CPGA Website Covid page.
