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.

  • Landing Stage Opening 2011

    On Saturday 1stOctober The Landing Stage was officially declared open by the Mayor of Kingston, looking resplendent with his ancient badge of office glittering in the wonderful sunshine, following an opening address from our President.

    KRC Landing Stage Party

    Several other councillors and representatives from RBK also attended and Tiffin Head Hilda Clarke and Deputy John King brought with them a magnificent buffet provided by the school’s canteen, which was greatly appreciated by all, not least the Tiffin schoolboys who had to be held in headlocks until the main guests were able to taste the fare. The Kingston Lovelies passed amongst the throng with glasses of bubbly which added to the sense of occasion. The bubbly that is!

     

    Richard Nelson with Matthew Crane, Veolia

    Mathew Crane from the main grant funders Veolia was also there and was highly delighted with the finished landing stage, and also with our genuine show of appreciation. He was able to congratulate in person the contractor Pat Walsh who attended with his wife, for a wonderfully completed project. The other funder, Waterways Trust, was unfortunately unable to attend.

  • Dinsdale at Dorney

    Many of us have a dream. For me, it would have been having the opportunity to ride (and stay on) Desert Orchid. For David Ford, it was rowing on Dorney Lake in the puddles of Steve Redgrave and co.
    Well for Dinsdale, the dream came through, when on 26th September 2009 he was invited by Old Etonians to make up the numbers in their annual scratch regatta.
    Having had a very comfortable but unsuccessful attempt in the fours, he settled himself in the bow seat of one of the eights.

    scan0015a

     With the Eton rowing course like a mill pond and the rating suitable for a fit looking bunch of ex Eton boys, David found himself ahead from the start and first over the line after 500 meters of a perfect pull.

    So glad you enjoyed it Dins, and do get another dream. You never know!!

  • Kingston start the season with success in Bedford

    Kingston Rowing Club started the 2008-9 season in winning style at the Bedford Autumn Small Boats Head on Sunday 12th October.  On a day when the weather was more akin to a summer regatta than an autumn head race the club registered 5 category wins at the first event of the season.

    The Men's Senior 3 coxed four was the 8th overall, ahead of the Women's Senior 2 double scull, the Men's Senior 3 coxless pair, the Men's Senior 3 single scull, the Men's Novice Single Scull.  All the category winners were thrilled, none more so that Tom Haworth, who won three events.

    The Senior 3 coxed four of Jay Gomez, Tom Haworth, Adam Dracott, Richard Lear and Helen Operta (Cox)

    Andy Hall, Club Captain was thrilled with the results, especially the number of further crews that were second placed within their category, and said "it's clear that the progress we have made over the past three years is paying real dividends in our performance on the water, and the support of the club's sponsor Laytons Solicitors has been critical in helping provide the top level racing equipment that is helping generate these results.

  • Veterans Dinner: Friday 3rd November 2006

    An extra special Vet's Supper this year - read the attached invitation for all the details.

    This one you really shouldn't miss - it celebrates one of the proudest moments in the club's history and one which showed the fantastic spirt of the club membership supporting the heroic effort of 9 guys defying their own fatigue and the elements to smash a tough existing record to such an extent that it has never come close to being beaten in the last 20 years.

    Make your plans, change your plans, make your excuses you've got to be there - this is going to be a great evening!

    Cheers
