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.

Opening times for casual use by members

At present (early April 2021) the bar is closed in accordance with national government Covid restrictions. We are looking at the government's roadmap to plan our return to partial or full opening of the bar in May 2021.

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. Rowing on the water resumed (again) on 29 March 2021 - see next section. Indoor training is not yet allowed as at early April.
When we train - Covid allowing
From 29 March 2021 we reinstated rowing on the water on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5.30-8.00pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 8.00am till about 1.00pm. Each squad has its own schedule of sessions. The current arrangements for sessions and rules under Covid-19 from 29 March 2021 are shown here.

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 and restarted on 31 March 2021 with restrictions to meet Covid requirements. Go to this page for details.

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, though Covid has disrupted some if not all squads ability to absorb new members.

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. This year (2021) we are looking at restarting adult learn to row in June, but junior learn to row is to be Easter hols only.
