About us

After a successful first year back on the water, RHULBC is back and ready for another year of racing, training, and socials! 

At RHULBC, we are determined to make the sessions fun, sociable and friendly. For the majority, these sessions will offer a solid grounding into the technicalities of rowing and will build on people’s fitness levels and general social confidence. There will also be opportunities for top rowers to compete in national competitions!

Don’t forget to check out our official instagram page, @rhul_rowing. Training information for members will now be communicated through whatsapp. If you are unable to access either Whatsapp or Instagram, please contact rowing@royalholloway.su. 

 

Membership

We are offering three memberships this year:

 

Standard: members are granted four sessions a week, with two being at Burway using the river and the other 2 taking place indoors or around campus, including runs, circuit training, or erg training. Standard members are also offered 2 guided 'optional' training sessions per week for those wishing to be competitive, one of which will be student ran and most likely a run. 

This is paid in two instalments of £150 (term 1), £250 (terms 2&3), totalling £400 for the 22/23 year.

 

Coxing: members will receive cox training at Burway but won’t be able to row during these sessions. However, members will be able to participate in indoor rowing in the sports hall at RHUL and in social runs.

Paid in two instalments of £40 (term 1) and £80 (terms 2&3), or 1 single instalment of £120, totalling £120 for the 22/23 year.

 

Social: As opposed to the Standard, this is for those who seek not to train but instead participate in social events such as pub nights. It is also an attractive option for those who have had an injury and can’t row but still want to support the club and fellow rowers!

This membership is paid in 1 installment of £20 for the academic year.

 

*KIT: infomation will be given out about kit in due course.

*NOTE: Like for other clubs, RHUL gym membership is separate.

However, we do use lift sharing for every water session! We meet at Founder's bus stop at 1pm to leave at 1:15pm. 

 

  • Bus: this route is quick and entails a bus ride from outside of campus to Staines followed by a bus to Abbey Drive, led by a short five-minute walk to the club. The journey is around 35 minutes:

  • Cycling: the journey can be completed in under 30 minutes:

 

  • Driving: This is the fastest, with a journey of c.20 minutes:

 

Student access fund

Understandably, some students may find it difficult to raise the funds for the membership and/or travel. If you have any concerns with finances, please contact the treasurer, Ben Norris, and/or student services as you may be entitled to a Student Access Fund if you meet the requirements.
