Your friendly local rowing club
Join us

Sudbury Rowing Club is a thriving sports club at the heart of the local community. We aim to provide a platform for people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities to achieve their ambitions whether these are at the highest level or simply to enjoy rowing on our lovely river. We are proud to be a family club, to invest in and support adaptive athletes and to have rowers aged from 12 to 80 competing at regional and national events.

The club is situated five minutes from the centre of Sudbury in Suffolk and Essex, in the middle of scenic Constable country. Rowing and sculling take place on a 1500m stretch of the River Stour between a weir at one end and a low bridge with shallow water at the other.

We are active the whole year round, training through the winter for the Mens’, Women’s and Masters’ eights heads in March and April while for the rest of the year the club concentrates on fours, pairs, doubles and sculls. We have an active junior membership that often competes in various competitions.
