Membership of Goring Gap Boat Club is open to all and we always welcome new members.

Membership Application

When you first come to the club, fill in the online membership form.

Full Membership

Full use of club facilities and equipment. Members can bring their own equipment e.g. paddle boards, canoes. Our full membership fee is £150 per year.

Junior Membership

Under 18’s are allowed down at the club, however they must be supervised by a parent or legal guardian at all times. It is not acceptable for the parent/guardian to leave their child on the bank while they go rowing. Children between the ages of 13-17 can join the club as junior members and can row if accompanied by their parent/guardian in the boat. We accept the policies and procedures relating to child protection, as set out by British Rowing and require all members to accept them. Our junior membership fee is £75 per year.

Student Membership

Students under the age of 23 with a student card can take advantage of a reduced membership fee of £75 per year.

Discounted Membership

Our ethos all about inclusivity. We want to get as many people as possible enjoying the river. We offer a reduced full annual membership fee of £75 per year to those in receipt of a means tested state benefit, e.g. pension credit or universal credit. Please let the membership secretary know that you qualify.

Fun Boat Membership

People who do not wish to row in fine boats but who are interested in using our fun boats can pay a membership fee of £75 per year. Fun boats members may not bring their own equipment to the club.


Sculling boat racking is available at the new boathouse.
