With an outstanding history of rowing success, Oxford Brookes University Boat Club’s High Performance Programme is recognised and supported by the GB Rowing Team and funded through the National Lottery.

Oxford Brookes University Boat Club has a track record of coaching rowers to challenge for a place in the GB Rowing national team, and is committed to British Rowing’s World Class Performance Strategy.

The Oxford Brookes University Boat Club has a boathouse at Cholsey, near Wallingford, and a land-based indoor rowing facility at Brookes Sport Headington.

World Class Programme

The boathouse built in 2013 features land-based training areas, extra boat storage and large changing rooms for the growing elite crews. It sits on a 10 km stretch of the River Thames that is classed as one of the best non-tidal stretches of water in the country. Brookes has one of the finest rowing hull fleets in Europe, consisting of Olympic-standard racing shells for every boat type – men and women, heavyweight and lightweight, sweep or sculling.

Packed with over 30 indoor rowing machines, 20 static bikes and a fully kitted strength and conditioning facility, the indoor rowing centre provides day long access for our rowing club to train.
