Meet the Athletes – 16th February 2017
As Leander’s GB athletes return to training post-Rio, members and corporate guests will hear the stories of three prominent Olympians at a Meet the Athletes evening at Leander on Thursday 16th February 2017.
Vicky Thornley, Will Satch and Jack Beaumont will be in conversation after a delicious dinner.
Founded in 1818, Leander Club aims to continue to be the leading provider of rowing athletes for Team GB and to remain the world’s most successful rowing club.
As the club approaches its bicentenary in 2018, Leander is shining a light on its high performance athletes, its history and its plans for the future.
Each year has a different focus. In 2016, Leander’s Row2Rio campaign focused on the club’s current GB athletes – 12 of whom won medals at the Olympics and 2 at the Paralympics.
In 2017, some of Leander’s athletes will row 1000 km down the Kafui River in Zambia.
In 2018 Leander will commemorate and celebrate its bicentenary with the club’s Patron, Her Majesty the Queen and a number events and activities.
In 2019 there will be another FISA-related rowing expedition and 2020 will be the Tokyo Olympics.
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.

Commercial partners engage with Leander Club and our International and Academy athletes for brand and relationship-building purposes.
As our story to 2018 and Leander’s Bicentenary unfolds, partners and other corporate clients are enjoying opportunities to entertain customers at Henley Royal Regatta and campaign events, or to row with our athletes.

But Leander is more than just a rowing club. In addition, the club has excellent facilities for formal meetings, seminars and workshops as well as 11 comfortable 4* rowing-themed bedrooms. Where better to inspire your delegates than at the world’s most successful single 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.
