Membership Options

We try to cater for everyone, so that’s why we have two membership options:

Land only (£35) – A great way to keep fit, without having to get into a boat! This is all of our land sessions from circuit training to indoor rowing! This membership can be purchased from the Students’ Union Website.

Land & Water (£195) – Everything the land only membership has to offer, but with the addition of access to all of our water sessions. This is the land membership (£35) + an additional fee (£80 per term, paid termly) paid to Gloucester Rowing Club for boat hire.

British Rowing Race Licence – To race on the water you’ll need a Student Gold Race Licence (£34) available from the British Rowing website. If you already have a race licence you’ll need to add us as one of your clubs to allow us to enter you into races.

If you have any questions regarding membership, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

Social Events

With all of the hard work comes plenty of fun! Our dedicated social Secretaries are always busy organising the next big thing! We hold at least one themed social evening a week, giving plenty of opportunities for those more social members to join in the entertainment.

At the Rowing Club, we aim to complete your university experience, where you can make lifelong friends and have an awesome time. So, come to one of our many socials or a taster session to get an insight into what we have to offer both on and off the water.
