UPRC offers the opportunity of rowing to anyone of any experience; from experienced athletes to people who have never been in a boat before. As a result we have a variety of different squads within the club which are related to the general skill, experience fitness and commitment, these range from novice squad - for beginners, up to the senior men and women's squads for the more veteran rowers.

We our currently one of the biggest clubs in the Athletic Union and our plan is to keep growing and improving to become competitive at all BUCS events, both indoor and outdoor, with a view to sending crews to non-university regattas, e.g Henley Royal Regatta.

Training at UPRC is generally 3 days a week - Monday, Wednesday & Friday. Water sessions usually take place on Wednesday afternoons or on the weekends, but are dependent on tides and winds etc. Sessions are based at Southsea Rowing Club (for land training) and Portsmouth Water Sport Centre (water sessions).

Training times here are as follows:

Monday: 8 - 10pm (Men only)

Tuesday: 8.30 - 10.30pm (Women only)

Wednesday: 2 - 4pm (Mixed)

Friday: 6 - 8am (Mixed

The membership fee for the Rowing Club is £90.

As a club we encourage our members to engage in all aspects of University life, as such we offer socials to all our members both alcoholic and non. This maybe anything from a Purple Wednesday night out, to a trip to the Bowling Alley.
