Thames Rowing Club has some of the best facilities of any club, with a fleet of Empachers and Filippis and two large gyms


The club refurbished its land training and boat storage facilities in 2005 and now has one of the largest and best-equipped clubhouses in the country.

The upstairs gym includes more than 30 Concept 2 ergometers, several RowPerfects, Concept 2 erg bikes, and space for stretching. Downstairs there is a fully-equipped free weights room and rowing tank, which can be set up as an 8+ or 4x.

The fleet predominantly consists of Empachers (4s and 8s) and Filippis (2-/xs), and includes new men’s and women’s 8s purchased in 2018.

Members also have access to the club’s bar and reasonably-priced meals are served after training.

The tank is available for hire at a rate of £6 per person per hour. Email boating@thamesrc.co.uk to enquire.
