Green Templeton Boat Club

Boat Club Image

Green Templeton Boat Club (GTBC) was created in 2008 after the merger of Green College and Templeton College. Since then, the GTBC has grown rapidly into a large vibrant community of enthusiastic rowers of all levels. We welcome not only current students, but also alumni and associate members, as well as family and friends.

Our history may be short, but already we have earned a reputation for both our skill and our fun. However, GTBC is not only about rowing, it’s a community. By working closely together in a team like this, many strong bonds and tight friendships have been formed over the years. We pride ourselves on our welcoming club culture, and our belief that anyone of any ability should have the chance to enjoy rowing. Our members are dedicated and train several times a week in all weather conditions to bring their boat together and get ready for bumps.

The skill of our athletes, coaches, and coxes has become clear as all our boats have rapidly climbed up the ranks. In addition, we are extremely proud to have had multiple members – both those that learned to row/cox at GTBC and those who had previous experience – join the university rowing teams and representing the university in the Boat Races between Oxford and Cambridge.

You can join the Green Templeton Boat Club at any time during Michaelmas term! But we recommend joining as soon as possible to follow the training program.
