Boathouse and rowing centre

The Oxford Brookes University Boat Club has a boathouse at Cholsey, near Wallingford, and a land-based indoor rowing facility at Brookes Sport Headington.

The boathouse built in 2013 features land-based training areas, extra boat storage and large changing rooms for the growing elite crews. It sits on a 10km stretch of the River Thames that is classed as one of the best non-tidal stretches of water in the country. 

Brookes has one of the finest rowing hull fleets in Europe, consisting of Olympic-standard racing shells for every boat type – men and women, heavyweight and lightweight, sweep or sculling.

Packed with over 30 indoor rowing machines, 20 static bikes and a fully-kitted strength and conditioning facility, the indoor rowing centre provides day long access for our rowing club to train.
