Join Portadown Boat Club

Portadown Boat Club welcomes people of all ages, abilities and ambitions, from 12 years old junior level right through to Veteran/Masters 27 years old and upwards! How young do you feel?

As Portadown Boat Club is the only Boat Club to operate on the Upper Bann we have a lovely stretch of water running from 1 mile upstream of the club to the Point of Whitecote and 9.5 miles downstream to the Bann Foot of Lough Neagh.

Water based coaching sessions are conducted on Saturday mornings 7.30am-12.30pm for junior crews. Adult crews row on Sunday mornings 9:00am -12pm.

Land training (i.e. gym and/or weights)  is on weekday evenings. Timeslots vary depending on which squad you are in.

The Club house facilities include a large gym area overlooking the River Bann, with weight machines, free weights and our ten concept2 rowing machines (ergos).
