British Rowing, in partnership with BUCS, are looking for host universities for the 2017 University Indoor Rowing Series.

With indoor rowing continuing to grow in popularity, 2016 was another bumper year for the University Indoor Rowing Series (UIRS) with 1,750 students competing across 13 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 2017 UIRS, taking place between Saturday, 4 November and Sunday, 26 November (inclusive).

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.

The deadline for applications is 23:59 on Friday, 7 July 2017.

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