Welcome to Kingston Rowing Club

Kingston Rowing Club is one of the world's oldest and most successful amateur rowing clubs. Based on the Thames between Kingston Bridge and Teddington Lock, KRC rowers enjoy one of the longest and calmest stretches of rowing water in the UK. The club caters for all levels, demonstrated by both a thriving Novice Squad and social events calendar, through to medalists in recent Olympic Games. KRC is the ideal venue for the typical club rower aspiring for success at National events such as Henley Royal Regatta and the British Rowing Championships.
The club also has a growing Junior Squad, aimed at introducing younger rowers to the sport, helping to foster competitive junior athletes and maybe create the Olympians of years to come. Regardless of whether you are a complete beginner or already an experienced rower, our aim is to provide you with the support, equipment and coaching you need to achieve your goals.

Leviathan Update

Since the start of the 150th Anniversary season the Leviathans have continued to enjoy their monthly outings up to Hampton Court (sometimes) and in their November foray also enjoyed a magnificent Pheasant repast following their re-hydration (on medical advice).


QUEENIE - Peter King and his lady Sylvie provided the wonderful meal and WEASEL - Matt Christie ensured there was some 'red belly wash'  to provide liquid refreshment. On top of this the group raised nearly £100 for the Boat Fund at the meal.

The December outing saw an eight, double and pair 'hit' the water under SOOTY - David Biddulph's guidance.  ATTILA - Astrid Ayling conjured up some Gluewein to celebrate her birthday during the club


In January, the Leviathans are celebrating their 4th Anniversary with

a FOUNDER'S DAY celebration on 13th. QUEENIE will again be providing a sensational meal to be served following the traditional re-hydration. Leviathan Chairman GOZ - Terry Gostling and Leviathans look forward  to seeing as many there as possible.
