Welcome to Tampa Rowing Club, Tampa ’s premier private rowing facility…Our Club has a rich and colorful history…. Founded in the late 1960s by a group of young and competitive scullers… TRC was incorporated in 1984 and about the same time was relocated on the University of Tampa campus in the “Van McNeel Boathouse”… Here we have created a recreational facility for rowing enthusiasts…we want our members to have the best (and safest) possible rowing experience. Located on the beautiful Hillsborough River, the club provides year round rowing opportunities.
Our mission is to provide a supportive and safe rowing experience. We are located on the beautiful and historic campus of the University of Tampa. From there our members and guests have access to some of the best rowing waters available - anywhere. We provide, by far, the best place for recreational rowing in Tampa at the lowest cost.
The club has a variety of club boats ranging from singles to a quad available to members and guests. Members are also able to store private boats on a space available basis.
Rowing is a wonderful recreation and exercise and the river is beautiful. We offer lessons to new rowers and support guests who wish to row in Tampa.
