Welcome to Kingston Rowing Club

Kingston Rowing Club is one of the world's oldest and most successful amateur rowing clubs. Based on the Thames between Kingston Bridge and Teddington Lock, KRC rowers enjoy one of the longest and calmest stretches of rowing water in the UK. The club caters for all levels, demonstrated by both a thriving Novice Squad and social events calendar, through to medalists in recent Olympic Games. KRC is the ideal venue for the typical club rower aspiring for success at National events such as Henley Royal Regatta and the British Rowing Championships.
The club also has a growing Junior Squad, aimed at introducing younger rowers to the sport, helping to foster competitive junior athletes and maybe create the Olympians of years to come. Regardless of whether you are a complete beginner or already an experienced rower, our aim is to provide you with the support, equipment and coaching you need to achieve your goals.

  • Henley Thames Cup Eight 2011

    Last year, the Wyfolds and Britannia were heavily oversubscribed and the Thames Cup not. This year the entries swung the other way and the Thames Cup was oversubscribed with 69 crews applying for the 32 places. Two crews went through the qualifying process with one of the Kingston crews qualifying in the top 10 places.

    The Thames Cup Eight then  had a difficult draw against one of the seeded American crews, University Barge Club on the first day. They held on well for the first couple of markers, but were slowly overhauled through the middle of the race.
