Upton Rowing Club is small and friendly club based in the town of Upton-on-Severn, Worcestershire. The current incarnation of the club was formed in the early 1990’s and has it’s base at Upton Marina.
The club welcomes members in all rowing sections from junior to veteran.We participate in competitive racing in fine-boats (both summer regatta’s and winter head races) and recreational rowing in more stable boats, including tours on rivers and canals principally in the UK.
Upton RC is affiliated to British Rowing and teaches rowing in accordance with both “Learn2Row” and “Explore Rowing” initiatives.
Upton RC is one of the UK rowing clubs that holds a specific beginner’s regatta in September each year.
Upton RC is a sociable club located in this small and proud town, which provides us with many fine pubs including the Anchor Inn where you will regularly find members re-hydrating after a satisfying row.
Check the current river level at Saxons Lode by following this link to the Environment Agency website. Anything over 2.4m is likely to result in a suspension of rowing.
