Trent Rowing Club is located next to the Burton Bridge in Burton upon Trent. The Club was officially founded in 1863, although there is evidence that river Trent boatmen were competing under the name in professional competitions prior to this date. Originally there were three rowing clubs in Burton, Trent Rowing Club, Burton Rowing Club, and Burton Leander Rowing Club. At some point in their history Burton Rowing Club and Burton Leander Rowing Club joined together leaving Trent Rowing Club and Burton Leander Rowing Club.
Trent jointly organise Burton Regatta and Burton Head along with Burton Leander Rowing Club. The Regatta is held in July and the Head is held in October. Please see the pages for each event for more details.
Our membership includes strong and successful Junior and Senior squads and a keen group of social rowers. We offer members the use of a top class fleet of boats, ranging from safe and stable training boats to top level competition craft, as well as off water training equipment including Concept 2 Indoor Rower Ergometers and Concept 2 Dyno Strength Trainers.
We are privileged to have access to uninterrupted good quality water for at least 8km upstream, including Burton Regatta’s challenging 1100m and straight 700m sprint courses.
Our Sport England ‘Clubmark’ accreditation underlines the Club’s commitment to Junior development and will give parents the confidence to allow their children to come along and try out the Olympic golden sport of Rowing in a safe and positive environment.
