Roodeplaat Dam is situated 22km north-east of Tshwane and is the main rowing venue in Gauteng, often referred to as the home of South African rowing. In 2023, the World Rowing Masters Regatta will be held at Roodeplaat Dam. There are a number of infrastructure projects planned at Roodeplaat to get ready for World Rowing Masters Regatta 2023. These projects are needed to realise our vision of creating a world-class water sports centre, that leaves a lasting legacy for South African rowing.
