Welcome to Devil's Elbow Rowing Club

Read the Book, See the Film and Row the Boat!

This January sees the release of the ‘The Boys in the Boat’, directed by George Clooney, it is the true, plucky underdog story of the USA rowing team’s efforts to get to and then compete in Hitler’s showpiece 1936 Olympics. If you get curious to see how it feels in a rowing eight, as you all work together in such a fragile craft, you can find out with the Devil’s Elbow at Trent Lock.  Maybe you rowed before and the film stirs long buried memories – do come back to rowing at a friendly club on a great stretch of river.  See how to join here

Trent Lock
Welcome to Devil’s Elbow Rowing Club. Founded in 2011 on the banks of the Trent at beautiful Trent Lock, we have grown to a club with over 60 active members. 
All ages, abilities and aspirations are welcome. We currently run Men’s, Women’s, Recreational and Junior squads, so there really is something for everyone. 
We regularly race and compete throughout the year, taking part in regattas and Head races, as well as more recreational outings such as the  Great Tyne Row, and the Vogalonga in Venice.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, whether you are an experienced rower or wanting to learn to row, Devil’s Elbow will have something for you. We look forward to welcoming you to our club. 
Meet new friends, build fitness, see the wildlife, enjoy the scenery and be part of our amazing team!

Our clubhouse on the River Trent is at the point where Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire meet and we have members from all three counties. 

Our scenic stretch of the Trent is popular for good reason but we often have it entirely to ourselves, excepting the wildlife and curious farm animals.
