Tyne United Rowing Club is one of the leading clubs in the North East.  We row on one of the best tidal rivers in the country.  From our base on the Gateshead side of the river Tyne we offer great camaraderie, professional coaching, fantastic facilities plus an opportunity to take your rowing to the next level.  Alternatively you can gently paddle, taking in the wildlife and a great view.    

If you would like to join us our Learn to Row courses cater for juniors and adults and we actively welcome new members who have relocated to North East or those who have simply decided to rekindle their love of rowing.
