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!
Our land training is based in the college gym which is located in Wadham itself. The gym has 8 ergs, a Rowperfect as well as a leg press and free weights. This means we can spend our time training, not travelling to and from the gym!
We have 2 brand new (2014) Filippi 1st eights, 2 matched Fillipi 2nd eights and 4 further eights for novice rowing. We also have 2 fours/quads, 1 pair/double and 2 single sculls. Additionally, we have 2 coaching launches for intensive technical coaching, as well as the latest cox boxes and safety equipment.
We also keep some boats on the Godstow stretch. This is a quieter and longer stretch of river, allowing us to train more effectively without traffic jams on the Isis.
