Liverpool University Boat Club (LUBC), established in 1926, is one of the oldest Clubs at the University of Liverpool. Our Men’s and Women’s squads are made up of novice and experienced rowers and everyone is welcome. We represent the university in local and national races (including Head of the River on the River Thames, Henley Royal Regatta and BUCS Regatta at Holme Pierrepont in Nottingham).
LUBC is currently one of the largest and most popular clubs within the University, with over 100 members at present. We have also established our Alumni club, Sphinx Boat Club, this year so past members of LUBC can get back together and row both for fun and competitively.
Our members train at least three days a week at Runcorn Rowing Club (RRC) on the River Weaver benefiting from a 10km stretch of water, arguably the best in North West England. Land training consists of erg sessions, circuit training and strength & conditioning sessions with both squads training in the Sports Centre on campus. In recent years we have developed our fleet of boats and are fortunate to be able to share boats with Runcorn RC as well as having an amazing coaching team who ensures we reach our full potential.
The Club is proud to have a lively social scene with events ranging from fancy dress Athletic Union Nights to traditional LUBC activities such as Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Dinners, the Boat Race Social, and the Annual Christmas Ball. We also organise fundraising events such as our two-day charity bike ride from Liverpool to Henley, completed to raise money for Claire house Children's Hospice and to fund new equipment for the club.
