STAGING Applications open to host 2019 University Indoor Rowing Series - British Rowing

Applications open to host 2019 University Indoor Rowing Series

The 2019 University Indoor Rowing Series is taking place between Saturday, 2 November and Sunday, 24 November, 2019


British Rowing, in partnership with BUCS, are looking for host universities for the 2019 University Indoor Rowing Series.

With indoor rowing continuing to grow in popularity, 2018 was another great year for the University Indoor Rowing Series (UIRS) with over 1500 students competing across 11 events.


In order to support the continued growth of these events, we are looking for universities to get involved and host an event for the 2019 UIRS, taking place from 2 November – 24 November.

Each host university is required to offer a core group of BUCS points eligible events with eligible times set within the series qualifying competitors for the BUCS Rowing Indoor Championship. Hosts can also add additional events as they wish.

Applications are welcomed from all universities across the UK including those with, and also without, rowing clubs. The selection of host institutions will be based on a combination of suitable facilities, experience of hosting events, and enthusiasm for the sport and encouraging participation from their region.

Applications close at 23:59 on Tuesday, 16 July 2019. Successful hosts will be announced in August on both the BUCS and British Rowing websites.

For more information and to apply to host an event go to the BUCS website.
