About Tay Rowing Club


Tay Rowing Club is a relatively new Perth based community Rowing club, established in 2015, which aims to make the Tay a major centre for the sport of Rowing.

Our focus is to provide a welcoming environment and opportunities for people new to rowing, as well as those with previous experience in either sweep rowing or sculling.

Despite the short time we have been running, Tay Rowing Club were named Scottish Rowing’s Club of the Year 2022/23 highlighting the fantastic effort already made by the club to grow the awareness of the sport in the area.

We welcome experienced rowers all year round whether they be recreational rowers or are seeking the thrill of racing!  We also run learn to row courses for complete beginners each year, starting April and running for 10 weeks.

We row from modest facilities on the south bank of the River Tay downstream of the Friarton Bridge. The wide sheltered waters offer huge potential for the development of the sport in the local area, and we offer both competition training as well as casual rowing sessions.

With support from the National Lottery, Awards for All, our first club boat purchased was a new C-class quad. Since then, our fleet has expanded and we aim to provide club members access to boats of all classifications.

Plans are currently being developed to help us reach our goals of establishing a flourishing and dynamic club on the Tay near Perth. Club members cross from across Tayside, Fife and even Edinburgh, and we currently run three on-the-water club sessions a week and 2 land based sessions.
