Since 1839, St George's Hospital Boat Club has been rowing on the Thames and representing St George’s, University of London. We take part in various competitions throughout the year, from United Hospitals events (London medical schools) to HORR/WeHORR and BUCS.
We welcome all abilities, and most people joining the club have never rowed or coxed before. New rowers join our novice squad, under the guidance of our Vice Captains, to master the basics before joining the senior crews. Our Cox Captain is responsible for training new coxes, and continuing the development of more experienced coxes.

Water training takes place twice a week (initially once a week for novices) at the University of London Boat Club in Chiswick, on Wednesdays and Saturdays for the women and Wednesdays and Sundays for the men. The Captains also set a program of land training sessions which take place on various weekday evenings at the Rob Lowe Sports Centre on-site at St George’s.
We also hold regular social events, from Circles after training on Wednesdays in the SU Bar, to meals at local restaurants and more formal dinners.A regular tradition is our annual weekend trip to a surprise destination! We’re a really friendly club and always happy to welcome new members, so if you’d like to get involved please join our Facebook for more information.
