About the Club

Manchester University Boat Club was founded in 1932 and has since grown into a thriving club filled with beginner and senior members.

Each year we take on 300+ members, all of whom are given the opportunities to train at our facilities and go onto compete in events such as: BUCS Head, BUCS Regatta, Head of the River, Women's Head of the River, Henley Women's Regatta and Henley Royal Regatta.

We have our own boat house on the Bridgewater canal and our erg room is conveniently located at the Armitage Sports Centre.

Club Philosophy

The club welcomes anyone willing to commit themselves to a new and rewarding sport. We are an incredibly social and inclusive club - training is often mixed with all of the squads training together.

Team work, dedication and inclusivity are core values of the club and enable individual and club success. We are a group of athletes whom are wholly dedicated to our sport. With senior members training most days, we aim to compete with some of the top universities. We also have a great beginners programme for anyone looking to learn a new sport - with many of our Seniors having learnt how to row with us. As well as training hard we are also a very social club - we are one of the biggest clubs at AU nights but also hold other social events throughout the year.

It is often said that rowers aren't just your team mates, but become your family. We maintain strong links with our alumni - many of whom have gone on to row for GB at the Olympics and Rowing World Cup events. Even after you graduate you'll always be part of MUBC.
