Welcome to Tyne Amateur Rowing Club

Tyne Amateur Rowing Club is based on the River Tyne at Newburn, just west of Newcastle upon Tyne. It was founded in 1852 and is amongst the oldest sporting clubs in England. We have the longest and best stretch of river for rowing in the north of England.

Squads and facilities

We have active squads for men, women, masters, novices and juniors. We have a good fleet of boats of all sizes and a new £1m boathouse, with boat storage, large ergo room, a separate weights room and a large social area with kitchen and bar.
When we train
Squads train Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5.30-8.30pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 8.00am till about 1.00pm. Each squad has its own precise schedule of sessions. 

If you are free during the day on weekdays, we run less formal Community Rowing sessions for adults. These are currently only on Wednesday mornings 9.30am-12 noon. Go to this page for details. You must let us know in advance you want to come down so we can plan ahead for you.

Learn to row
We are pleased to welcome new members. If you have some experience on the water, you may be able to start right now. For complete beginners we normally run learn to row courses for both adults and juniors in the summer, with taster sessions preceding them over the winter. Get in touch now about 2024 courses via their respective pages.
