We row on a stretch of the River Lea in Broxbourne. This is approximately 20 minutes from campus and travel is arranged by the drivers involved in the University club. This allows the university club to operate from a boat house with a fine fleet of boats, gain access to an equipped gym and spacious club house. 

Your membership with university will cover you to row at Broxbourne Rowing Club, and there are options to continue your membership over university holidays.

If you are already a coxswain or are wanting tolearn please get in touch.



Whether you have never rowed before or a veteran rower, all abilities are welcome at our university club, we operate with the aim to train both novice and senior crews to row competitively at Broxbourne, other local and British Rowing events as well as BUCS Championships.

The Rowing Club encourage their members to enter competitions managed by BUCS as well as other regional and national events.

Rowing was named University of Hertfordshire Club of the Year in 2019.

The sport provides a full workout with indoor and outdoor training conducted by our captains and coaches. We are lucky to have a great set of experienced and qualified coaches that are keen to pass on their passion and knowledge to help support the development of crews as well as individuals wishing to row in singles. The time and efforts of our head coach, Dave Brown, has been recognised by winning the University of Hertfordshire’s Coach of the Year for 2022.

I like being part of a mixed team and training is always fun and challenging. You walk away feeling like you've achieved something even from a training session.
