UNITED WE ROW

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.

Explore Series Round 6

Today was round 6 of the explore series host by Durham Amateur Rowing club. And what a fantastic day it was!! The weather was glorious and after our traditional bacon sandwiches, the racing began.

We had 3 races to complete and we won 2 of them. This means we are still top of the league table, closely followed by Tyne Arc, only 2 points behind.

The extra training that we have all put in has really paid off, and the team work on the day was fantastic!! 

The day was topped off with a nice leisurely row along durham river taking in the sights and scenery courtesy of DARC and their cox.

A perfect day had by all ?

Masters Women

Welcome

The club welcomes everyone to row, regardless of age (or size). Scarily you actually become a master’s rower at the age of 27. All the local regattas have master’s events and different age groups can row against each other with a handicap system. We welcome all new members, whether you are coming back to rowing after a break or moving up from the Development Squad. For those who have never rowed you begin by joining one of our Learn to Row courses and will then progress into the development squad, before joining the main group.
The Women's Masters Squad train Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6.00pm and Saturday mornings 8.00am and 10.30am. You can attend as many or as few of these sessions as you wish, but if you plan to compete we recommend you attend training as often as possible.

Competition

For those wishing to compete we offer great racing experiences for various abilities. These range from the fun loving, highly competitive, Explore Series, which is a fun and friendly introduction to racing; through the local regatta and head races all the way up to the National Championships. We target the biggest regattas and heads in the country. We race both sweep and sculling, competing on average once a month.

Recreational Rowing

We recognise that not everyone wishes to compete and some just row for pleasure and to keep fit. On a Saturday 10.30am-12.30pm we offer a more recreational session. This allows those that do not wish to compete or are newer to rowing to develop their skill level and mix in boats with more experienced rowers, who will help them develop their skill level.

Finally

Rowing is a great way to keep fit and a chance to meet new people in a fun and friendly atmosphere. If you are interested in joining our squad then please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are Tyne United Masters Women
