Minerva Bath has a proud and rich history stretching back to 1914 and our origins in Bath Ladies Boat Club. In the 100 years that have followed we have never stood still and always moved forward.


With the help of Sport England, BANES and many local trust funds and sponsors we have been able to build the first ever loos and showers on site so that more people can join the club and enjoy the sport of rowing, socially or competitively.


But we always need more! For instance, our junior squad has increased 3 fold over the last 2 years and the pressure on coaching and equipment is inevitable. We run courses for local charity for disadvantaged children, Mentoring Plus, and are short of the equipment we need to help continue this. We fund as much as we can from our membership fees but equipment and repairs are expensive.
