Thanks for dropping by. Cygnet Rowing Club is a adult menís rowing club with great facilities and an enviable location close to Barnes Railway Bridge on the Thames Tideway. We enjoy ourselves on and off the water while maintaining a balance between committed, aspiring athletes and letting our hair down now and again (and again), when we can easily be identified by our eye-catching stripy blazers. We are a big enough club to compete in all the major head races, local and more distant regattas, including Henley Royal, but still small enough that you know who everybody is.
Cygnet is a predominantly an adult menís club but we share our boathouse (and more) with our sister club, Barnes Bridge Ladies. Our membership includes senior and development squads who are out on the river for coached sessions each weekend and training on and off the water during the week, as well as more independent groups out sculling or in crews picking their best times to enjoy the river. Coaching is provided and our senior coach is Tim Male, former GB lightweight medalist.
We welcome new members, whether they are complete beginners, experienced oarsmen or returning to the sport. Experienced rowers will be integrate straight into our established squads and complete beginners can take our Learn To Row course, tailored to give their rowing careers a fast start.
We are passionate about what we do and how lucky we are, disbelieving that anyone would waste money on gym membership when you can get fit outside, part of a team on this fabulous stretch of the Thames Tideway. Please do look around the site, particularly the FAQs and contact the captaincy with any enquiries.
