The UWA Boat Club is the reigning Rowing WA Champion Club for the seventh year in a row. We’re also the largest rowing club in the state.

We offer rowing programs for both students and non-students, from beginners through to international athletes.

The Rowing WA pennant season runs from April to September with regattas typically fortnightly.

We are based out of the UWA Boat Shed and Watersports Complex on Matilda Bay, Crawley (just across the road from UWA). We are also a Good Sports affiliated club.

Had a drop in fitness over summer or want to try something new? We are accepting new members and have a range of squads to suit every level.
