Hollingworth Lake Rowing Club
TRAINING THE NEXT WORLD CHAMPION
Welcome to Hollingworth Lake Rowing Club. We are a small friendly rowing club situated on the bank of Hollingworth Lake near Littleborough. The origins of the club can be traced back to 1872 with the current clubhouse built in 1973. Our inclusive club caters for complete beginners to those more serious rowers aspiring to compete at the highest level.
The club is affiliated to British Rowing and is Clubmark accredited.
The boathouse provides storage for the club’s boats, comprising eights, fours, doubles and singles in a variety of sizes to suit all ages and weights, and for member’s private boats.
Water based training sessions are held on Saturday and Sunday mornings all year round, and during the spring and summer months on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. In the winter months training is land based during the week.
We encourage young people to join the club and our Juniors have had considerable success over the last forty years, many of them winning National Championships, one becoming a World Champion, another a World Silver medalist and two representing the country in the Olympic games. At the other end of the spectrum we have a group of purely recreational rowers.
We also have regular social events in our lounge and function room. The function room, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the lake and Pennine scenery, is available for hire.

The North of England Sprint Rowing Championships
Saturday 2nd September 2023
Premier Cars Main Regatta Sponsor
Results and Victor Ludorum
The North of England Sprint Rowing Championships 2023 was held on Saturday 2nd September and hosted 34 clubs from across the country with 511 competitors taking part in 201 races over 500 metres.
Warrington Rowing Club achieved most points for both the Senior & Masters and Junior Victor Ludorum cash prizes. However the rules are such that each club can only win one prize, so the cash prize for the Junior Victor Ludorum goes to Trafford Rowing Club – who were only one point behind Warrington.
But they were by no means the only successful Clubs and most left with a good medal haul. The regatta was represented by most of the Clubs in the north of England with entries from as far afield as Lakeland, Chester-le-Street, Kingston Hull, Lincoln and Bridgnorth. 34 clubs in total providing 400 entries spread over 201 races at 3 minute intervals between 8.30 am and 6.30pm.
We also hosted a number of Explore crews, some of whom found stakeboat starts challenging, but they all got down the course with Windermere taking the final honours.
The photographs taken on the day are all available for purchase online via the website www.reactionphotos.co.uk. The password is: noesrc23 (all lowercase). There is discount information on the first page for those wishing to purchase more than one photo.
The date for 2024 is Saturday 31st August and we look forward to welcoming you again.
