Whether you’ve never been in a boat before or competed at Henley Royal Regatta, NTU Rowing has a squad for everyone. Our novice, intermediate and senior sections have effective training programmed created by our highly experienced coaches, and most importantly, it’s a lot of fun!
Each year we send a selection of crews from each squad to compete in BUCS 4s & 8s Head, BUCS Indoor & BUCS Regatta. We also attend a number of competitions throughout the academic year including local regattas and Henley Royal Regatta.
We train at Nottingham Rowing Club’s facilities located on the bank of the River Trent by Trent Bridge. This is a short 15-minute bus journey from the city centre or a 30-minute walk. Members train at different times throughout the week depending on which squad they are in which will be agreed at the start of each term. Coaches provide separate training plans for each squad which include a range of land and water sessions.
How to join
We host a series of taster sessions at the beginning of the university year, the week after the fresher’s fairs. We like to encourage as many people as possible to give rowing a try, so arrange several taster sessions with land and water training to give everyone an all-round feel for the atmosphere of the club and the sport itself.
You can join NTUBC at any point in the year, but we encourage you to join at the beginning of the first term so that members can start racing as soon as possible; first term if you are an intermediate or senior and second term if you are a novice.
All members will need to affiliate with NTU Sport for £50 then you will pay our venue directly and this breaks down as Seniors £300, Intermediates £225, and Novice £220. Memberships purchased at any point during the academic year are only valid until the end of term 3.
Each year our kit officer organises a club sports kit order which takes place during the first term. The kit order consists of a rowing all-in-one and a splash jacket. If members are racing, this kit is compulsory.
