Balmain Rowing club is a community Rowing club catering primarily to Novice and Intermediate Rowers from the local area.In operation since 1882, the club celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2007 and celebrated the rememberance for rowers passed, laughter for rowing mishaps and hope for many more rowing wins and spills.

Though the clubhouse is small, it is large when it comes to support for fellow members. The club can be found at the bottom of White Street Balmain and shares its position with Elkington Park and the Dawn Fraser swimming pool.Balmain Rowing Club is always happy to receive enquiries from Junior Novice or intermediate rowers who wish to make Balmain their Club.

The club has a rich and detailed history, with its active and past members boasting numerous state, national and international titles - see below to view a brief history or if you have any historical information or photos of the club please contact the club.

The meeting consisted of local citizens and the mayor and councillors of the then Balmain Municipal Council.Women play an active role in the present club but this was not always the case. A separate Balmain Women's Rowing Club occupied a site at Elliott Street but was destroyed by fire in the early 50's. The women then occupied a small section of the current boat shed as a separate entity. Over time, the women members joined other clubs and Balmain Women's Rowing Club ceased to exist .Today, women are full members of the club and contribute strongly to the club's success both on and off the water.

Balmain has enjoyed success over the years with world, Australian and state champions coming from the club.Balmain Rowing Club is proud of its traditions and place in the Balmain community.
