THBC and the College wanted to invest in the boathouse to make improvements to ensure that it is secure in its footings, generous in its facilities, and up-to-date with its equipment. We believe in providing an excellent team training environment to help with the recruitment of novices and ultimately the regaining of the headship.
We launched an appeal in 2012 which coincided with the club’s 185th anniversary to help with the refurbishment. This included providing new changing rooms on the ground floor, improved gym facilities, a refurbished club room and a new coach’s room. We raised over £879,000 and we are very grateful to alumni who supported the project. The newly refurbished Boathouse was reopened in June 2015 by Dr Walter Scott. Since then the numbers of students taking part in rowing have increased significantly.
