Sport

I will post information on inclusive sport activities here where readers can participate if they wish rather than just  observe.

Rugby

rugbycomoThe first mention is for Como’s Rugby Club in that it may not be at first obvious that there is a rugby club here since those of us from the UK or France might have mistakenly thought that there was little local interest. Instead the club offers involvement in the sport for a variety of ages. Their web site is only in Italian but gives an idea of the scope of their activities and how to contact them.

Rowing

canottieri larioThe Canottieri Lario is Como’s rowing club on the lakefront in Viale Puecher. It was established in 1891 and has built up a great reputation nationally and across Europe. It runs after-school courses for 9 to 13 year old children which run during the school year. They also have summer courses that run from the end of the Italian school year until mid July. Adults who have an interest in rowing can take up membership, follow a brief course to train or revise rowing skills and to point out some of the safety procedures to follow on the lake. Membership also brings use of the sauna, gym and swimming pool – as well as to the bar and restaurant. Their web site is only in Italian but gives  comprehensive information  on their activities. The Facebook site is a less formal and more revealing idea of the club atmosphere.
