Welcome

Hello and a warm welcome to Minerva Bath Rowing Club

 

We are a small but friendly rowing club that continues to improve and expand its facilities and membership, welcoming all ages and abilities of rowers, scullers, coxes and coaches.

 

Our youngest rower is 13 and our oldest is 74, still rowing internationally and winning gold medals. We have had crews competing at Henley (Veterans); the fours’ and eights’ and veteran Head of the River races on the Thames; the FISA World Masters’ championships, as well as plenty of more local regattas and head races on our stretch of the river Avon, at City of Bristol, Bewdley, Ironbridge and Ross to name but a few.

 

We are Clubmark accredited. Our passion for rowing extends to offering local schools and members of the community the chance to participate in a fast-growing sport. The club is located on the River Avon at Newbridge, Bath and offers its members a good stretch of river from Bath weir up to Saltford, which is about 4km end to end.

 

In 2015 we were awarded Sports Club of the Year for the second time by Bath and North East Somerset to add to previous awards of West of England’s Sport Trust Club of the year, the Bath Chronicle’s Sports Club of the year and British Rowing volunteer of the year, a great testament to our members commitment to the club and passion for bringing rowing to the local community.

 

Last year saw fundraising supported by Sport England, Bath and North East Somerset council and local sponsors and trust funds enabling the club to build a brand new shower facility building on site. Further fundraising is contributing to our new weekday sculling programme and to equipment and site improvements which are ongoing – watch this space!

 

Minerva Bath RC is where our club patron, Helen Glover, took up the sport that would lead to her Gold Medal in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, the first gold medal awarded a female rower and the first of many she has gone on to win.

 

If you would like to join us, as a cox, coach or rower, or you would like to sponsor us, we would love to hear from you.

 

Happy rowing!
