Barnes Bridge Ladies Rowing Club

About Us

BBLRC are a relatively small club compared to others on the Thames. Thanks to commitment of Captains and Coaching Team we have been very successful in both Regattas and Head races. We welcome adult rowers of all ages and welcome both experienced and beginners.

We are one of only two women only clubs in the UK. Our club has a fleet of boats set up specifically for female rowers. We have an excellent fleet with either Hudsons or Filippi’s for top racing crews.

If you have never rowed before we run special courses for complete novices, Learn to row, or read more about joining.


Senior squad coached water sessions are on a Monday, Thursday evenings & Saturday morning. We have dedicated Strength & Conditioning Coach running sessions on a Sunday.

Novice squad coached water sessions are on a Saturday & Sunday mornings.

We have our very own gym on site ‘The Shed’, included in your membership fees and access to a rowing training tank.

If you are an experienced rower – be it Senior or Novice – you can join a session or two to try us out. If you’re interested contact us.


We share our boathouse with Cygnet RC and often join forces for mixed races, both fun and serious.

It’s also important to mention the bar & social side of life! From the weekly Thursday night post outing dinner in the bar, monthly Sunday pub lunches, annual gatherings for Henley Royal Regatta and the Christmas Party; there is always something to look forward to both on and off the water.

We hope to hear from you soon.
