Membership @ MURC

Membership is open to any person over 15 years of age. Our club is principally a community based rowing club, focused on being inclusive to all those interested in getting on the water.

Approximately 1/10 of the club members are Murdoch University graduates, with the remaining, having discovered our club through our many innovative programmes that link our club with the wider community.

MURC Rowers come from all walks of life and all shapes and sizes. If you have some rowing experience, you can join any time, but if you are new to the sport, the best option is to take part in one of our Learn to Row courses.
