Merton College Boat Club


Our club was founded to give members of Merton College, Oxford the opportunity to row. We are based at our own boathouse on Boathouse Island, Christ Church Meadow, on the Isis – the local stretch of the river Thames.

The Club is open to all students and members of staff at the college and provides opportunities to row at every level, up to and including the Blues (University) boats.

If you’re one of our alumni, an incoming fresher, or anything in-between, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our secretary (, who can direct you to the right person for you.

Take a tour of the website and give us a follow on Instagram, if you’re into that kind of thing.

All the best,
Theo Duke
