While the athletes at UCC Rowing Club train very often there are still plenty of social events to keep the club members entertained during the year!
The biggest annual events are:
- The 12 Pubs of Christmas
- Champs night event(The best night of the year!)
- Halloween Fancy Dress Party
- Clubs and Society Ball (The Awards Night)
- Club Quiz
There are also a lot of other casual nights out during the year, usually one every two-three weeks at the start of the year.
Even when we are not socializing we have plenty of other things to keep members busy, including fundraising events like on campus bake sales.
The best part of the social aspect of UCC Rowing Club would be the trips away. Regattas take place all over Ireland which we get to travel to during the weekends, we also are sometimes lucky to get to go abroad, including attending Men’s and Women’s Royal Henley Regatta in London. This ensures fun road trips in the cars, nights away and enjoying the nightlife in a different city! There are also training camps during the year where athletes have the chance to stay in different places such as Dublin or Belfast and train with a different college for the week!
Photos from all these events can be found in the Photo Gallery section under “Social”.
