Our student senior squad has been highly successful in recent years, with numerous medals at the highest level of British University Rowing, and several athletes representing Great Britain at under 23 and senior level. We also compete at and medal in various regattas and head races across the UK and overseas. 

Whether you are a student who doesn't know your bow from your stroke side, or training to make the national squad, if you want to be successful and have fun doing so, then we are the club for you.
