Whitlingham Boathouses Foundation Ltd

Whitlingham Boathouses Foundation (Registered Charity No 1133063) has been established to develop and maintain a rowing and canoeing facility for the community in Norfolk.

It is based in Whitlingham Country Park, on the River Yare, on the south eastern edge of the City of Norwich.  Competitive and recreational rowing and canoeing takes place on the Norfolk Broads rivers, which offer access to over 150kms of un-locked inland water.

Whitlingham Boathouses is an accredited Explore Rowing centre with equipment that may be hired out to other Explore Rowing clubs.

Phase 1 of the new boathouse was opened in 2011 and Phase 2, the fit-out of the first floor including changing, recreational and fitness areas, is expected to open in 2015.

The Foundation is supported by 2 Community Amateur Sports Clubs (Norwich Rowing Club and Norwich Canoe Club) in addition to the University of East Anglia, Norwich School and Norwich High School.
