Lea Rowing Club Limited

Who we are

Affiliated to British Rowing, Lea R.C. is open to people of all levels of experience, aged from 11 upwards. We always welcome new members who want to compete at the highest level nationally and internationally, or simply want to enjoy rowing socially and being part of our community. We are the closest rowing club to The City of London and row on a stretch of water that runs from Tottenham to just beyond the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. We take our name from our location on the River Lea, a tributary of the Thames at the foot of Spring Hill in Hackney, London E5. The Club was founded in 1980 by the members of five rowing clubs then active on the Springhill site, continuing a tradition of rowing on the Lea that can be traced back for almost two hundred years. We continue to have strong connections with the local community with whom we share the river. Our achievements We have produced successful male and female athletes from junior through to seniors over the years. We have won at Henley Royal Regatta six times and won countless national and international championship medals. Our high-achieving juniors have regularly competed for GB and England, both nationally and internationally. Squads We have a range of squads for men, women, masters, novices and juniors, allowing members to row competitively at any age, ability or level of development. We operate a ‘pyramid' structure that replicates the British Rowing system - from elite and club level, to recreational - and welcome anyone to come and try the sport through our adult and junior courses. We also run recreational, community and school rowing sessions for adults and juniors.
