Welcome to Devil's Elbow Rowing Club. Founded in 2011 on the banks of the Trent at beautiful Trent Lock, we have grown to a club with over 50 active members. All ages, abilities and aspirations are welcome. We currently run Men's crews, Women's crews, Recreational crews and Junior crews, so there really is something for everyone.
We regularly race and compete throughout the year, taking part in WeHoRR and HoRR each year, as well as more recreational outings such as the Good Friday row , Great Tyne Row, and the Vogalonga in Venice.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch, whether you are an experienced rower or wanting to learn to row, Devil's Elbow will have something for you. We look forward to welcoming you to our club.
Meet new friends, build fitness, see the wildlife, enjoy the scenery and be part of our amazing team!

Our stretch of river runs from our base at Trent Valley Sailing Club
(TVSC) up stream on the River Trent 2.5km to Harrington Bridge.
Experienced crew boats can also venture up the River Soar for a change
on scenery. Touring can also take place down river to Beeston, up to
Loughborough or even inland to Shardlow.
We run recreational rowing trips with crews participating in the Vogalonga in Venice in 2014, and Amsterdam in 2015. Other Recreational rowing events include the Great Tyne Row where our men took Pennant for fastest Crew in 2014 an 2015, and the women's crew took the Pennant for best dressed boat for their fantastic swan theme.
