Join the leaderboards

We have just returned from the Olympic Esports Week 2023, where we proudly showcased EXR in collaboration with World Rowing in the Free-To-Play Zone. The experience has been absolutely incredible and we owe it all to you! Your participation in our 3 special group rowing sessions played a vital role in spreading the EXR experience live in Singapore and across the globe!

But let's cut to the chase — the July update lets you enjoy an ego boost with its revamped leaderboards to check out if you're the best rower amongst your friends. To make our upcoming group rowing session with British Rowing on Sunday, July 16th, more exciting, we added farmlands together with cows and sheep.


Enhanced leaderboards

Analyzing your rank on the leaderboards and comparing it to your peers’ got easier. Check out their stats by clicking on their username on the web leaderboard. Open the app leaderboard to discover who of the rowers you're following ranks #1.

Learn more about the reworked leaderboards’ functionality on the support page.

More to see at Henley

Henley’s surroundings are more lively thanks to cows and sheep grazing on farmlands. Also, you can now row past a waterfall.


Extended functionality for unsupported rowers

Until now, unsupported rowers were unable to rank on leaderboards. This meant that they weren’t able to unlock achievements and participate in challenges that required leaderboard entries. Since the enhanced leaderboards now also include unsupported rowers, leaderboard-linked achievements and challenges become available.


  • Various minor bug fixes regarding visuals.
