Welcome to Thames Tradesmen’s Rowing Club
For the first time in its 121-year history, no one will be out on the water at Thames Tradesmen’s Rowing Club. On Sunday 19th August, Hounslow Borough Council shut Chiswick Boathouse, denying rowers at Thames Tradesmen’s Rowing Club access to their clubhouse and boats. The next day, the Council changed the locks and took away their keys.
Established in 1897, Thames Tradesmen’s Rowing Club has an impressive and unique history, with a reputation for producing some of the finest international and club oarsmen of the last 50 years.
Thames Tradesmen is a friendly, open club which accepts all abilities and is always open to new members.

Always wanted to Learn to Row?
We run a regular six week induction programme facilitated by trained coaches and experienced rowers.
Courses start first week in July, August and September.
We have an ever-improving range of club boats, consisting of Eights, Fours, Coxed Fours, Doubles, Pairs and Club Singles. There is a separate bay for privately-owned single sculls and blades. We have both indoor and outdoor racking space (which to our knowledge is the cheapest on the tideway!).
The indoor training facilities include a large indoor gym with free weights, squat cages and indoor spin bike, a dozen ergos in a separate room and, for outdoor training, the classic Barnes Bridge to Hammersmith, Putney and Richmond Bridge runs.
New Classes at TTRC
Core stability, strength and flexibility are key to good rowing technique (as well as general health and wellbeing).
We offer weekly classes in Yoga and Kettle Balls, which are open to non-members too.
Thames Tradesmen’s Rowing Club is based in west London on the Tideway at Chiswick Boathouse.
We can also offer rowing in east London at the London Watersports Centre, on the Royal Albert Dock.
