If you’re interested in Rowing, then Oxford is a great place to start or take it further, and Merton has a superb outfit to get you going.
All members and associate members of Merton College are encouraged to join the Boat Club whether experienced or new to the sport. Levels of commitment range from committed training squads for our 1st VIII+ to those just looking for a lot of fun and great team spirit. Every Michaelmas term about 30 new novice rowers and coxes join the Club, with the numerous of those going on to compete at higher levels. We enter several men’s and women’s boats into Oxford’s major rowing events: Christ Church Regatta, Torpids, and Summer Eights, as well as into Nephthys and Oriel Regatta, as well as the Isis Winter League. In Summer Eights 2014 even the SCR has featured by fielding an VIII+.
In the past we have also participated in external regattas and head races, such as the Cambridge Winter Head, WeHoRR, HoRR, Bedford Amateur Regatta and others.
Interested? Head over to the boat club website or get in touch with the team captains to find out more.
