Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club: Parasport Club of the Month

Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club’s adaptive squad is flourishing thanks to Mark Dewdney, Head Coach

Located in the centre of picturesque Stratford-upon-Avon, opposite the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, there is no better spot for everyone to enjoy the delights of the River Avon and all it has to offer. And last month Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club (SUABC) was honoured as Parasport Club of the Month.


Mark Dewdney and his team have worked tirelessly to ensure that rowing is a sport for all to enjoy. Having spent many years coaching with Evesham Rowing Club, Mark made the move to SUABC in 2015. Here he brought about the changes required to form the adaptive squad. Mark is part of a team of five qualified coaches and a reliable set of volunteers. All have the same focus: to ensure that everyone, no matter what their disability, has the same access to rowing as their able-bodied club colleagues.
