Experienced rowers

The men’s and women’s senior squads cater for all those who have rowed previously, whether at school, university or another club, and are keen to continue improving and winning.



Thames welcomes both experienced and beginner coxes – membership fees are £100 or free if you provide your own cox box. Coxes can express a preference as to the squad they will join but will be used across the club depending on need.



We do not run learn to row courses, but welcome beginners to join the club and develop quickly to a competitive level. The novice intake is usually in September; please email to enquire. Beginners are expected to commit to at least two weekday evening sessions plus Saturday and Sunday mornings.



The club has thriving men’s and women’s masters squads for those aged 27 and above who can already row. We do not operate a structured programme for masters and there is no formal coaching. Contact if you are an experienced master wishing to join.



The juniors train on weekday evenings and weekend mornings or afternoons. The squad has a fleet of singles, doubles and quads. The club cannot cater for junior rowers under 14 years old.
