Taunton Rowing Club was founded in 2012.

Our founder Ian Payne has long been passionate about rowing and decided Taunton should not be without a club.

Located at COACH in French Wier, we row on the River Tone. Boating down from French Weir, we Row on the 700m stretch from Tangier down to Fire Pool Lock

Despite the limitations of the river, it is a great place to learn to row and train.

Exciting news ahead for Taunton Rowing Club!

We have relocate to a new boathouse in French Weir Park, close to Longrun Meadow, thanks to the unstinting efforts of Ian Payne and his fellow Trustees. C.O.A.C.H, Centre for Outdoor Activities Community Hub, will see us share facilities with kayak, cycle and orienteering clubs. Apart from the new boathouse we will enjoy proper changing and training facilities plus a café.

We are a small club, but one with a growing membership. Our members regularly compete at local and national levels and have been enjoying several wins in 2016. We welcome new members of all abilities and ages. Our minimum age is currently 14.We have an experienced and diverse coaching team ready to offer their skills and support to help you achieve your rowing or coxing goals.
