The University of Malta Rowing Club (affiliated with Malta Rowing Association), is a University of Malta Senate recognised student organisation founded in 2015. This present Club aspires to re-establish the culture of rowing within the University of Malta, a tradition which used to be very strong up to the 1980’s. The club is registered with Sport Malta, SM/O 030 and is enrolled with the Office of the Commissioner of Voluntary Organisations, VO/1358.
The scope of our Club is to promote rowing in all all its forms within the University of Malta community. We provide training to rowers and participate in the national and international rowing events. We try to significantly improve the rowing experience of our athletes by creating an environment where students can enjoy their sport and at the same time develop their teamwork and leadership skills through sport in a relaxed yet semi-competitive environment.
The Club is working hard to introduce Olympic style sliding-seat rowing in Malta. For this purpose, the Club has acquires two 8+ boats from the University of Oxford’ Exeter College Boat Club with help received from FISA. These are the first Olympic style rowing boats which have been acquired by a rowing club in Malta.
