IMPORTANT NOTICE: City Bumps 2017 Cancelled

For a variety of reasons, we had a very low number of entries for Oxford City Bumps this year and so have decided to cancel the event. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but the Events Committee considered all the options and were concerned that the racing would not be high quality or competitive and we didn't want participants to have a bad experience. We will make sure next year's City Bumps is bigger and better!

About Us

The City of Oxford Rowing Club is Oxford's largest and most successful rowing club with membership open to all.


The club is situated on a beautiful stretch of the River Thames known as the Isis, by Donnington Bridge in Oxford.


With over 300 members, it has thriving men's, women's, junior and adaptive squads, from beginners to elite.


Alongside a strong competitive spirit, the club also enjoys a healthy social side, offering a wide range of opportunities for local people to enjoy all aspects of the sport.


It plays host to a number of popular rowing events including the Oxford City Royal Regatta, the Oxford City Bumping Races and the Isis Sculls.


The club was formed in 1968 by the amalgamation of Neptune (1863) and Hannington (1904) rowing clubs.
