Welcome to Rowing

Rowing is the youngest sport in the Paralympic Games. It was introduced to the Paralympic Programme in 2005 and held its first Paralympic competitions at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games.

Adaptive Rowing is Rowing or Sculling for athletes with a disability who meet the criteria as set out in the Adaptive Rowing classification regulations. ‘Adaptive’ implies that the equipment is ‘adapted’ to the user to practice the sport, rather than the sport being “adapted” to the user.
