Welcome to RHULBC!

As of 2020/2021, we boat from Eton Excelsior Rowing Club near Windsor and welcome athletes of all abilities - new or experienced. RHULBC aims to compete on university, club and national levels with each term providing a number of events that squads can train for with the support of our coach and the fantastic facilities offered to us at EERC’s clubhouse and some on campus. 

Once abilities have been assessed and memberships have been paid, a race calendar will be devised based on squad availability for certain events and an on and off-water training programme provided for all rowers. Training days are still being finalised, but we know we’ll have a weekend day (likely Sunday) and a midweek session, which for most sports is a Wednesday. Updates will be provided when more times are added.


New to rowing?

The team at EERC are able to offer us a 6-week programme specifically for beginner rowers: British Rowing’s ‘Learn to Row’ course will enable you to learn and understand the basic techniques and their purpose in making a boat move as quickly as possible. Once you’ve completed this, there are some novice events in first term - such as the University of London’s intercollegiate Allom Cup - which will give you one of your first race experiences. You’ll always be an integral part of RHULBC, and once this course is over your knowledge, experience and fitness can continue to grow as a member of the wider squads competing at events of differing levels. If you learn that you’re more suited to coxing - which is required in some crews of 4 and all 8s - equally fantastic tuition will be provided because your role is pivotal as one of the most important crew members who not only steers the boat, but motivates and pushes the rowers throughout training and races. 


Experienced athletes

Oarspeople who’ve rowed at other clubs or schools prior to coming to Royal Holloway are equally welcome. Whether you’ve a host of race success and experience under your belt or you’re past the level of absolute beginner and are able to slot into a crew and make the boat move comfortably, the start of the year will provide the chance for our coach to assess your ability and work out which squad’s best for you at the time.
