Background and Ethos
UTRC was founded in 1963 with the intention of challenging the dominance of clubs on the lower reaches of the Thames. Upper Thames aims to compete at the highest domestic level in all age categories, and is proud to have a number of ex-Olympians and international standard members.
UTRC membership is available to people of all ages and abilities but those new to the sport may find their needs better met at clubs more focused on providing a pathway into the sport for the less-experienced or those wanting a purely recreational rowing environment. That said, anyone with a degree of self-reliance, regardless of their experience or ability, will find plenty of friendly members willing to help them improve their skills. More experienced athletes will find a natural home at UTRC and those wishing to compete in domestic and international events will find our excellent equipment, free trailering and “rowing-first” culture highly supportive.
Social activity at UTRC is generally limited to events such as the annual dinner and ad hoc events around Henley Royal Regatta (HRR). We value a harmonious, convivial environment away from the stress of everyday life. We want members to enjoy their rowing and believe in the benefits of rowing on body and mind. Outside of the senior squads there is no formal selection policy and members should rely on their own efforts to find crewmates.
We appreciate those who volunteer at our events or bring additional skills necessary to the running of clubs like ours. UTRC runs the Upper Thames Autumn Head (UTAH) and the internationally famous Henley Masters Regatta (HMR). We are fortunate to have an increasing number of overseas members who use the club when they are in the UK and wish UTRC to become synonymous with the best traditions of rowing at home and abroad. Our enclosure during HRR is, we believe, the best place to enjoy the racing, and Social memberships are available to those who want tickets.
We hope this gives you a good idea of our aims and ethos. If you would like to join please complete the following membership form (please email for details, which may change from year to year, at
