Welcome to Reading Rowing Club.
All of us at RRC send our Congratulations to Team GB Rowing for an awesome 2012 Olympics with special recognition to Alex Gregory, Gold Men’s 4- and Sam Townsend, 5th Men’s 4x who both started their rowing careers at Reading Rowing Club. We are very proud of Alex, Sam and the whole GB Team
We pride ourselves on being a really friendly community rowing club located on one of the best stretches of the upper Thames and have access to over 6km of beautiful water stretching from Caversham Bridge to Mapledurham lock. We are a rapidly growing club that encourages people of all ages and abilities into the sport of rowing. We have produced National and International medal winners from Junior through Senior and up to Master’s level. During the 2012 season the club have had over 70 wins at events both home and abroad. Two of our Junior Women have progressed to be the top Junior pair in the UK and have been selected to row in the GB Coxless 4 at the Junior World Championships in Bulgaria in August.
We are also part of the British Rowing Explore programme so if aspiring to National or International success at rowing is not for you; we would still love to see you. We have invested in two brand new stable coxed 4’s and are looking to further develop the recreational side of our superb sport.
Our recently refurbished club house provides superb training and event facilities and is perfect for visiting clubs wishing to hold both winter and summer training camps. With disabled access and facilities we are also looking to expand our Adaptive rowing activities.
Explore our website to find out more about the club, or better than that; come along and see us.
