JOIN LEA ROWING CLUB
Join Our Club
We always welcome new members who want to compete at the highest level nationally and internationally, or simply want to enjoy rowing socially and being part of our community.
Based in Hackney, we row on a stretch of the River Lea that runs past the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. We are the closest rowing club to The City (30 minutes by bike or public transport).
“I joined the Lea because I immediately felt welcome”
The Men’s Squad is looking to continue to build upon its strong crews at Henley Royal Regatta, including the Wyfold Challenge Cup in 2018 and 2017, and semi-final in the Britannia Challenge Cup in 2015. It has serious ambitions to return to the winners podium and add to the current club tally of six HRR wins.
Novice & Development Squads
For adults early in their rowing careers, our Novice and Development Squads have had some big successes, supported by a structured training programme. More information can be found on our Men’s and Women’s Squad pages. The entry point for Novice rowers is via our Learn to Row Course
The Women’s and Men’s Masters’ Squads plan to improve their performances at Veteran Fours Head, Veteran’s Head of the River Race, British Masters Championships; and to put in strong showings at Henley Masters Regatta and the European and World Masters Championships.
