Welcome to Strathclyde Park Rowing Club.

We are the club for you, whether you are a complete beginner to rowing or an aspiring champion.

We have around fifty members of all ages and abilities and we have access to the best facilities in Scotland.  These include 8 2km racing lanes on the purpose built course, the only indoor rowing tank in Scotland and a fleet of over 25 boats from training singles to international standard racing sculls.

We train on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10.30am until 12.00 noon all year round with more experienced club members getting on the water from 8.00am.  In the summer we also train midweek on a Tuesday and Thursday from 6.00pm until 8.00pm.  Outwith British Summer Time we swap the water for indoor sessions.

We have a team of coaches for all levels of expertise and we work closely with staff in the Boathouse Gym to get the best out of our training.

As well as training, we are a socialable club and organise a number of events throughout the year including post event dinners, scratch regattas at Christmas and Easter and our legendary annual awards ceremony dinner (and dance!).

If you want to find out more about our club, the facilities or the coaches, please explore our website or contact us here.

We look forward to seeing you at the Park!

Rowstart Courses 2014

Rowstart courses have now been confirmed for 2014. 

  • February 16th
  • May 4th
  • June 22nd (To be Confirmed )
  • August 17th (To be Confirmed )
If you are interested in taking part in any of the above courses please let us know by emailing  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and also check out our How to Join section for further information.

This is a great introduction to the sport of Rowing and is a great opportunity to meet new people and get fit. We run two or three courses in the year, they last six weeks and cover the basic rowing stroke including learning the basic skills of boat confidence, balance, boat moving and maneuverability. We teach the British Rowing Technique and we aim to get people into boats and allow for a great opportunity to socialise. 

We train on Strathclyde Loch, a purpose built 8-lane 2km course and the Watersports Centre offers changing and showering facilities as well as a Costa coffee shop for socialising in after training. We are also lucky enough to have direct access to the Scottish Rowing Centre which is next door to the Watersports Centre. Within this facility we have a bank of our own rowing machines and we regularly make use of the indoor rowing tank as well as the expertise of the fitness instructors based in the gym. 

We look forward to seeing you on one of our Rowstart courses!

SPRC Annual Awards Dinner

It's nearly that time of year again where we celebrate all of our club's achievements.  The Annual Awards Dinner will again be held in the Avonbridge  Hotel in Carlisle Road Hamilton on Saturday 1st February at 7pm.  This is the biggest social event on the club calendar & is always a very enjoyable evening. We will have a five course meal then get on to the serious business of presenting awards, some serious, some not so!  It's a good chance for members & parents to get together in a more glamorous setting than at regattas & to get out of the lycra!!!

Ticket prices have been held at £25 a head again this year.  Numbers need to be confirmed in advance so places can be booked up to 23rd January. Payment will have to be made at this time too.  I am usually at Junior training on a Thursday night & at the park on a Saturday morning or can be contacted through the secretary if you have any

queries or wish to book places or speak to any other committee member. I also have to advise that the Hotel run a strict over 18's only policy at the bar, including during the dinner & as you will be there representing the club I ask that all members & parents please respect this.  

Hope to see you all there.
