Facilities and Equipment
Wadham's Boathouse is situated along the banks of the Isis in Christ Church Meadow. It is the first boathouse along Boathouse Island and shared with St Anne’s and St Hugh’s, each of us having our own bay to store our boats and blades. Upstairs there are toilets, changing rooms, showers, locker rooms and a communal area. We also have several ergs at the boathouse, which can be taken out onto the balcony when the sun is shining!
We have 2 new (2014) Filippi 1st eights, 2 matched Fillipi 2nd eights and 4 further eights for novice rowing. We also have 2 brand new fours, 1 pair/double and 4 single sculls, including two new ones. Additionally, we have 2 coaching launches for coaching, as well as the latest cox boxes and safety equipment.
Our land training is based in the college gym located in Wadham itself, which means we can spend our time training rather that travelling to and from the gym! The gym has 8 dynamic ergs and a static, a Rowperfect as well as an exercise bike, leg press, bench and free weights.
In addition to our boathouse, we also keep some of our boats on rented racking at Godstow during the terms. This stretch of river along Port Meadow is much quieter and longer than the Isis, allowing us to train more effectively during peak times.
