Oars and open doors

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

ROW­ING clubs across the State will hold an open day on Novem­ber 8 to show­case the sport and teach peo­ple how to row.

There will be a statewide ergo com­pe­ti­tion for the non-rowers.

The win­ners for each cate- gory will win a com­pli­men­tary course on learn­ing to row from their pre­ferred club.

Eleven clubs across WA will open their doors, in­clud­ing Curtin Univer­sity Boat Club.

Ti­mothy Wid­di­combe from UWA Boat Club, said row­ing was the ul­ti­mate team sport.

“It of­fers you the com­plete body work­out,” he said.

“The friend­ship that you gain is much stronger than you will from other sports be­cause of the train­ing com­mit­ments and the work load that you do to­gether.”
