“For the rest of your life, you will always be able to say I was a member of a very special team whose whole was greater than the sum of its parts, and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life.”
Queen Mary, University of London Boat Club (QMULBC) provides rowing opportunities to students, staff and alumni of Queen Mary University of London. If you’ve never rowed before, that isn’t a problem! In fact, most of our new members join the club with no experience, going on to not just learn how to row, but even compete in races within just a couple months, so it’s safe to say we welcome rowers of all skill levels! With crews of varying abilities, QMULBC endeavours to cater for everyone. If you decide rowing isn’t your thing, we also have a thriving social scene to keep your calendars packed.
The Club has a long and proud history. Founded in 1910, the club has a heritage of producing fine quality oarsmen and women, and of winning plenty of pots. Some of our rowers have even gone on to represent Great Britain in the Olympic Games, with two winning gold in 1984 alongside Sir Steve Redgrave.
Full membership allows the member to use our fleet, partake in training sessions, and compete in races for the College. However, we also offer both Coxing and Social memberships for people who rowing might not suit. Membership subscriptions can be purchased online at the QMSU website or at the QM Student Union’s Hub, on the Mile End campus.
