Novice Rowing 

Never rowed before, but keen to try? Then the Novice Womens Squad is for you! Here, you will learn to row alongside friends and people who share simililar interests, compete as part of a team, whilst increasing fitness. Novice rowing is a great way to get stuck into the university social scene, in a large squad of people, with lots of fun of the water along the way too. As a novice you will get the chance to compete in both the longer Head Races like Womens Head Of The River and also Summer Regattas such as BUCS Regatta and Henley Womens Regatta. 

Our training sessions take place both on the water and in the gym - don't worry about your previous sporting experience or fitness level, anyone can give it a go. Just look at Bath Alumni Heather Stanning who started as a novice rower to find herself winning a Gold Medal at London 2012! So if you fancy your chances at the olympics, or just want to try something new then come and learn to row.

If you have any questions then don’t hesitate to email the Novice Women’s Captains, Emily Bourne ( and Tabi Anderson-Edward (


Senior Rowing

The Senior Women's squad is for anyone with previous rowing experience, and for girls who are looking to progress their rowing to the next level. We train six days a week, with a mixture of water, ergo, weights and cross-training sessions. We race throughout the season, culminating with BUCS Regatta, Henley Women's Regatta, and Henley Royal Regatta.

At Bath University Boat Club, we don't worry about your current standard of fitness or technique. We offer you the opportunity to progress as far as possible, with many notable alumni going from novices to Olympians, starting at Bath University. Currently in our senior women’s squad we have GB triallists and BUCS medallists as well as oarswomen that have been rowing less than a year. There is a place for everyone in our senior women’s squad. 

Rowing is a fantastic way to get fit, make friends, and get some medals along the way! If you have any questions, or are interested in joining the senior squad, please don't hesitate to email the Senior Womens Captain, Molly Hopping (
