Hello and welcome to Grosvenor Rowing Club Chester!



Grosvenor Rowing Club is based in the historic city of Chester on the River Dee, on one of the best stretches of river to row on the UK. We opened our doors in 1869 and we’ve not looked back since. Check out our history to see how the club has grown and how we came to be who we are today as a club.


We pride ourselves on our inclusivity and encourage rowing for all, regardless of ability  catering for all abilities from beginner upwards. We run regular Learn to Row courses and many of our Learn to Rowers go on to success in our Novice and then Senior squads. With a large boat stock and supported by quality coaching, the club competes at regional, national and international events. Club members have medals at national and world championship level. See our squad pages for more information of the kind of things our members get up to on rivers, lakes and oceans both in the UK and abroad.


We also welcome visiting clubs who come to use our facitilies for training camps. For more information, check out the training camp page.


However, its not all about the rowing of course! With BBQs, discos, our annual Summer Ball and Christmas Sherry party Grosvenor Rowing Club is a vibrant and social place to be.


Why don’t you take a look around and get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you!
