Our Junior, Senior and Masters squads compete every year in the Thames Head Races, British Championships, national regattas, international Masters Regattas and at selected European events, as well at just about every local Head and Regatta.

Honours include the Jackson Trophy at the Tideway Head of the River in London, the Wyfold Challenge Cup at Henley Royal Regatta, and the George Innes Cup at Henley Womens Regatta.

Worcester Rowing Club members’ have rowed in the National Rowing Squad and the International Squad taking part in World Championships and the Olympic Games.

We also have a strong “recreational rowing” section, for those who don’t want to compete anymore, using rowing for fun and fitness.
