The University of Malta Rowing Club is a student led student organisation founded in 2015 to promote the sport of Coastal Rowing within the University of Malta as well as on a National basis. This is done by providing training to our rowers in preparation for competing in National and International Coastal Rowing events.
The Club’s mission is:
“To nurture and foster a community which strives to achieve academic and rowing excellence”.
The club is doing this by offering students, staff and alumni the opportunity to try out an alternative sport whilst improving their general fitness through our coastal & indoor rowing courses offered multiple times throughout the year.
In addition, throughout the year we try to organise a number of events where rowers can get a bit competitive whilst having fun.
Malta Rowing Gym and Coastal Rowing
As a club we have invested over €20,000 in our rowing gym as well as the first two Coastal Rowing boats in Malta. However, our work hasn’t stopped here, we are working on new & innovative projects to continue developing the club.

The scope of our Club is to promote rowing in all all its forms within the University of Malta community, provide training to our rowers and participate in the national and international rowing events. 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 also aims to promote the sport of rowing, particularly Olympic style sliding-seat rowing, to a wider cohort of the Maltese population. 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.
We strive to significantly improve the rowing experience of our athletes by creating an environment where our young rowers can not enjoy their sport, but also develop their teamwork and leadership skills through sport in a relaxed yet competitive environment.
