‘Marlow has given me opportunites in sport which I never thought I would experience. I have fallen in love with rowing, the coaches are amazing, and I have made some lifelong friendships. Marlow has truly inspired me.’ – Melissa, WJ16 Squad.
‘The club is like a second home to me. Rowing challenges me and gives me structure to my day. It’s just a great place to be.’ – Amelie, WJ18 Squad.
‘I enjoy training at Marlow – the atmosphere is great, we have the latest equipment and a stretch of water to ourselves. I love being part of a squad, whilst being able to train and race competitively.’ – Niall, J18 Squad.
The junior womens’ squad has had great success for many years locally, nationally, and internationally. We set our targets high, with ambitions of medaling at National Schools and British Championships, along with winning Henley Womens’ Regatta, and Henley Royal Regatta.
Our racing history is reflective of the successful provision of rowing the club provides. At Womens’ Henley Regatta, Marlow have reached finals since 2015, winning in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019. The junior women have also been representing Great Britain in the GB vs France match since 2015. In 2019, Marlow were the first crew selected to race in the new addition W4+ event, alongside the W4-.
The junior men at Marlow have been actively building their squad over the past few years in search of a repeat performance of the Fawley winning crew at Henley Royal Regatta in 2013.
Their targets are to dominate the local head race and regatta scene, along with achieving top places in long-distance head races in the winter months, winning medals at the National Schools Regatta and British Junior Championships, and qualifying for Henley Royal Regatta. We also aspire to continue having crews and individual athletes selected to represent GB.
