Recent successes and developments

Head of the River Race 2012:

  • 331st place, Chester University, 00:20:56.14

BUCS Regatta 2012:

Stephanie King has been working hard since taking over as club captain at Chester University Rowing Club by leasing with the British Rowing organisation to expand the squad, in membership numbers and new opportunities for success.

Particularly in the lead up to 2012, Rowing is an increasingly popular and highly followed sport, and as a University Squad, we travel across the country on a regular basis attending Nationally recognised events such as BUCS (Peterborough and Nottingham), Head of The River (London) and Henley (London), as well as many more local and UK wide events.

We have regular races in Manchester, Liverpool, York, Northwich, Warrington, Chester, Shrewsbury and more, so become fairly well known. We also recently held a BUCS indoor championship here at the university, which attracted over 200 elite rowers who attend other Universities in the North West, including two athletes from the youth GB squad and a Welsh Squad member. After successfully holding this event for two years running, we plan to continue in the future to run the event here at Chester, and have plans to expand to a wider range and increase promotions. We also regularly partake in Charity events, including Sport Relief Mile, Three Peaks Challenge and a 24 hour row, which are all scheduled for later this year. Furthermore, we are currently in the process of setting up a column in Cheshire Life magazine, where in addition to usual press coverage, we would have a regular spot to be seen and acknowledged by the eyes of rural Cheshire.

We are extremely proud of the success we attain as a small University Rowing club, and efforts to expand the club even further are continuing.

Rowing is not all about the training (although it is a HUGE part). At the University of Chester, socials are an important aspect of making the most out of your experience and provides a great opportunity to get to know people who come from so many different backgrounds.

All Rowing Club socials have a unique theme, and start from between 8 and 9 every Wednesday at the SU followed by bars like Off the Wall, Missoula and Havanas then finishing the night off in the famous Rosies. Harry Hickson, the Social Secretary at the club will confirm themes closer to each date and will communicate via the Facebook page.

Also throughout the season, Harry will organise squad meals and trips to the cinema. Any questions please do contact him via the details below:
