Portadown Boat Club are always looking for new members and we try to let everyone have a trial period of 4 weeks before asking you to commit. A trial period will cost £20. 

If after 4 sessions you decide to join the Club (which we hope you will) you will get £20 off your annual membership fee.  This is suitable for juniors aged 12+ and for adults aged 18+..

Just let us know that you want to come down by emailing or go to Contact Us page. You can also contact us through Facebook.

All you need to wear is some gym kit suitable for outdoors, a fleece and a light rain coat if it is raining.  Don’t wear anything too lose that could catch while rowing.
