Not only is Worcester one of the most stunningly beautiful and friendly of the Oxford colleges, it also boasts one of the most popular, vibrant and up-and-coming boat clubs in the university. One of the five oldest Oxford boat clubs to take part in the infamous ‘bumps racing’, Worcester College Boat Club has experienced something of a renaissance in the last ten years. Both our men’s and women’s First Eights have won blades very convincingly in the last few years and the club boasts a college participation rate of about 40% at all levels.
