MEETING ROOMS AT LEANDER
Just one hour from London and easily accessible from Reading, Oxford, Bracknell and Maidenhead, Leander’s warm and attentive service within a members’ club dedicated to GB rowing success, is why companies and trade associations keep returning for their Board and sales meetings, seminars and workshops
Leander Club, acknowledged as the most successful Olympic sports club in the world, has just completed an outstanding programme of member activities during its bicentenary. As well as holding celebrations in prestigious London venues such as Downing Street, St Paul’s Cathedral; the House of Commons and Guildhall events were held around the world in Dublin, Sydney, Johannesburg, and New York. In partnership with World Rowing and in furtherance of the sport in general, Leander athletes also participated in a 900 km down the Kafue River in Zambia in August 2018, to raise the profile of the sport in sub-Saharan Africa. This project was brought to life in Henley through the Paint-a-Hippo project which raised over £8.000 for the Kafue River and Rowing Centre. At the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 we expect that, once again, more than half the GB Rowing Team members will be Leander athletes.
Leander Club is home to champions past, present and future. Our Members have won more Olympic medals than any other single-sport Club in the world. Our young high-potential oarsmen and women enjoy state-of-the-art facilities and world class coaching. Do you have what it takes?
Leander Club Membership brings many benefits. Members enjoy Clubhouse hospitality seven days a week. The Clubhouse also provides a privileged base for Henley Royal Regatta and there is an active program of Club and campaign events throughout the year. You don’t have to be a rower to apply to join us as a Club Member.
Companies engage with Leander for a variety of reasons. Apart from sponsorship and brand alignment, we organise events to engage customers, executive teams and employees in innovative and often prestigious ways. Adjacent to the Stewards’ Enclosure, Henley Royal Regatta guests at Leander enjoy excellent hospitality at what some would call the spiritual home of world rowing. From April – October our athletes deliver corporate rowing activities and performance-related talks or workshops, designed to motivate and inspire executive teams. But Leander is more than an elite performance rowing club. In addition, the club is an impressive venue full of rowing memorabilia, with excellent facilities for formal meetings, seminars and workshops. It also has 11 comfortable 4* rowing-themed bedrooms. Where better to inspire your corporate guests or delegates than on the Thames at the world’s most successful Olympic sports club?!
The extraordinary success of Team GB at the Olympic Games in Rio has placed them at the top of the rowing medal table. Twelve Leander athletes won medals (out of GB’s total of 26) to swell the Club’s tally of Olympic medals from 111 in 2012 to an amazing 123.
