Newark Rowing Club is steeped in history being founded in 1873. It has evolved over time into a thriving club. We row on an excellent stretch of the River Trent which provides our members with the ideal opportunity for training, whether over long distances or for those who enjoy a scenic recreational row.

We are a very friendly club and are active both on and off the water with events throughout the year.
