Amazing shot of one of our scullers in action on Caldecotte Lake

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 rowing with races, events and training schedules, weekends and mid-week, as well as social functions. This covers both water training (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 (from 16 years upwards) and abilities, from complete beginners through to experienced, competitive rowers. We also welcome supporters who perhaps may wish to take their rowing 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 - again

Following on from the last three events where Milton Keynes Rowing Club have returned from the World Rowing Masters Regatta with Gold medals, we again managed the feat at this year's event in Libourne, France. This time it was an all MKRC crew of Lucy Guest, Paula Heywood, Louise Rivett and Karen Wilson coxed by Kim Hutchinson in the Women's F 4+ who delivered the GOLD MEDAL performances.
