All About The Devils
The Devil’s Elbow Rowing Club is based on the River Trent near Long Eaton at the confluence of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. Located here since 2012, the Devil’s Elbow is a friendly and inclusive club. How to find us.
Our men’s and women’s squads do race and train hard but we also have a recreational rowing and go off on our travels around the country and abroad. Our stretch of the Trent is a great place to be for some pleasant countryside and good rowing.
Many of our members have come to rowing as a second sport and a fresh challenge. There is a strong ethos of self motivation for training rather than dictatorial sessions and schedules.
We are affiliated to British Rowing and follow its safety procedures and plans. Proper safeguarding procedures are in place for our Junior squad. More on Safety
We row throughout the year on weekends and evenings. The winter evenings on the river are a great way to the see stars and get some fresh air and exercise done away from the gym or sofa.
