Meet The Athletes Evening

Thursday 15 February 2018
6.30pm to 9.45pm
The Bar will remain open following the formal proceedings

Our guest speaker will be Sir David Tanner CBE, Performance Director of British Rowing since 1996, who has led our sport through its richest-ever period of success and helped take Leander’s Olympic medal tally to 124.


The evening will follow our well established and highly successful formula.

6.30 pm Complimentary reception drinks will be served and you will have a chance to meet all the athletes and our guest speaker.

7.15 pm We will move promptly to table where the athletes will be introduced before the service of a three-course meal.

Members will share their tables of ten with past and present Leander Olympic champions and medallists. There will be two athletes per table and they will move after each course ensuring you all have a chance to meet as many as possible.

9.15 pm Sir David will speak and take questions
