Club Membership Applications
We are always pleased to receive applications. Each candidate is assessed individually on their merits and you’ll need to meet our eligibility criteria.
For Club Membership, candidates who live locally and can take advantage of the Club’s facilities throughout the year, are especially welcome.
No rowing qualification is required for Club Membership, but rowing connections or interests should be listed under sporting interests. However Candidates are expected to be of ’good fellowship’.
Club Membership is limited to 35% of the total Membership. As a result, there may sometimes be a waiting list. When this occurs, priority is given to candidates who have rowed or been involved in the organisation of the sport and who reside in Henley and the immediate Thames Valley area.
Club Members are entitled to wear the Club’s ‘hippo’ livery.
How to apply
A candidate for election as a Club Member must have a Full (or Life Member) either as his Proposer or Seconder. The other Proposer or Seconder may be a Club Member.
It is your proposer who applies on your behalf. Your proposer should have known you for some time, and should write in support of your application for Membership.
Please be aware that being eligible to apply does not give any Right to be elected – this is a Committee decision.
