About us


Established in 1926, LUBC is one of the oldest clubs at the University of Liverpool. The club accepts experienced and new rowers, training all members to compete in several national competitions.

These include:

Head of the River Race (HORR)


BUCS Regatta

 Henley Royal Regatta (HRR)

Henley Women's Regatta (HWR).

Senior crews train 3 times a week on a 12.3KM stretch of the River Weaver with additional land training sessions on indoor rowers (ergs), strength and conditioning sessions, and circuit training. New rowers are taught how to row from the beginning of semester one, with the aim to have you rowing at a senior level by the end of your first year.

We train for Head races during the winter, leading up to the Head of the River Race and Women’s Head of the River Race. After Easter, our training and racing is tailored towards success at BUCS Regatta and then Henley Royal Regatta and Henley Women’s Regatta.

During the Easter break, we run a training camp to prepare us for the summer season. The location of this training camp varies from the Lake District, Reading Rowing Club and even Seville, Spain. The week is always full of tough but enjoyable training. 

LUBC is also proud to have a lively social scene. We hold events ranging from fancy dress Athletic Union Nights to traditional LUBC activities such as Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Dinners and the Annual Christmas Ball.


We also organise fundraising events such as our two-day charity bike ride from Liverpool to Henley, completed to raise money for Claire House Children's Hospice and to fund new equipment for the club.
