Since the founding of the University of Nottingham Boat Club in 1892 we have been one of the most prominent and successful sporting societies. Today UoNBC remains a highly dedicated and active club. We offer rowing for athletes of a wide range of abilities but aim for everyone to reach their full potential. If you are looking at rowing at University, make sure you look at the opportunities choosing Nottingham offers.

Outstanding facilities

We enjoy training on the River Trent, a vibrant hub for rowing; it’s home to several other rowing clubs and also to the National Water Sports Centre! We maintain a modern fleet of rowing and sculling boats at our boathouse. Off the water we use the University’s dedicated sports training facilities.

Never a better time to join

Both our men’s and women’s squads are rapidly improving and have seen successes at international level. A massive investment programme in sport at the University of Nottingham is also underway, including the £40 million David Ross Sports Village set to open next year. We are committed to continually upgrading and improving our boats and clubhouse.

High performance support

We are keen to recruit high performance rowers. The club is committed to providing a range of support to those rowing at the highest levels. If you already compete at regional or national level, you can apply for a rowing scholarship.
