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.

British Masters Championships 2016

An exceedingly successful weekend for the Kingston Masters rowers with 8 gold, 3 silver and 2 bronze medal winning crews, putting us fifth place in the Victor Ludorum. In 2015 we won 3 gold medals so this is a significant step up.

KRC fielded a team of 10 men and 18 women this year, and 7 men and 17 women came away with medals.

      It was particularly pleasing to see the men's squad performing well this season. The structure put in place by Miles Fellows and Birgith Sims back in October, followed up with regular coaching from Birgith and John Woodroffe has clearly paid off and their medals were reward for all this hard work. Now comes the step up to intermediate level for 2017!

      The women's squad had a memorable regatta with an impressive haul of medals as well as a few near misses. After our success in 2015 there was a plan set in place by Nick Rowett to take a larger group to the Championships and improve for 2016, and the results have been above expectation. The coaching input from Nick, Richard Nelson and Mike Clarke has made a very positive impact on the success of the squad.

      These 8 gold medals take the KRC winning total up to 56 for the season.
