Welcome to Thames Tradesmen’s Rowing Club

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.

Club facilities

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.
