Leander Members always receive a warm welcome

We have around 3,600 members world-wide. These include our Patron, HM Queen Elizabeth II; Honorary Members such as Sir Steve Redgrave CBE and Sir Matthew Pinsent CBE; and our many Full (UK and Overseas) , Club and Spouse Members.

All members enjoy the daily hospitality of the clubhouse, privileges, exclusive access at Henley Royal Regatta, offers and special events.

We have membership categories for distinguished oarsmen and women, and social non-rowing members

Full Membership

Full Members include distinguished past and present oarsmen and women, and the world-class athletes, who comprise our active rowing squad.

The Leander Club Committee assesses each candidate on rowing merit and can also admit Full Members based on their services to rowing. Candidates must complete a Full Membership application form supported by a proposer and seconder who must themselves be existing Full Members.

Only Full Members are permitted to wear the Club blazer buttons and the coveted Leander ‘Pink’ livery such as the tie or pashmina, cap, scarf and socks.

Overseas Membership

A number of our distinguised Full Members live overseas and benefit from reduced subscriptions.

Full subscriptions, however, apply to overseas members visiting the club at Henley Royal Regatta.

Club Membership

Club Members enjoy many of the same privileges as Full Members. Many may not have rowed but they wish to support the rowing programme and enjoy the Club’s hospitality. They are entitled to wear the Club’s ‘hippo’ livery.

Each candidate is assessed individually on their merits.  If you’d like to apply, you will need a proposer and seconder, one of whom must be a Full Member.
