Seniors Membership Pack

Junior Membership Pack

Bedford Rowing Club has one of the finest fleets of any provincial club. Part of our recent facilities extension works included the provision of a large, well-equipped gym and also a spacious ergo room. The whole club boasts modern facilities, having been fully refitted after a major fire gutted the building in 1984. New larger changing facilities were completed in the new extension in October '99.  In summer 2012, the facilites were upgraded to include a fully accessible toilet and stair lift.

We have a flexible range of membership categories on offer. The subscription year runs from 1st September to 31st August, pro-rata arrangements are made for those starting mid-season. Membership benefits include discounted entry fees at BRC events, at the discretion of the Events Committee.

The following classes of membership shall be available at the rates agreed at the Annual General Meeting in each year:


  • Senior Rowing: Full use of the Club's equipment and facilities for land and water training.
  • Recreational: For those who wish to row recreationally up to twice a week.
  • Junior Rowing: As for senior membership, for juniors.
  • Coxswain: Our valued members - does not cover use of land training equipment (unless your crew considers it necessary to reduce that deadweight...)
  • Student Rowing: For students wishing to use the Club's equipment and facilities during term time.
  • Student (Vacation) Rowing: For members studying away from Bedford. This covers use of equipment and facilities during summer, Christmas and Easter vacations only.


  • The Bedford Rowing Social Club (BRSC) exists to support the Bedford Rowing Club, and is responsible for running the bar and social events. All senior members of Bedford Rowing Club are automatically members of BRSC. If you are not looking for rowing membership, BRSC membership of just £10/year gives you full access to the bar facilities. We have a full-time steward: the bar is open every evening and weekend lunchtimes.
  • Non-Rowing Open only to existing members of the Club who cease active rowing and with agreement of the Committee.
