Thames Ditton Regatta was established in 1948. It remains a very popular event in the British rowing calendar. Despite increasing demand for multi-lane racing, the regatta still attracts top crews from schools, clubs and universities from around the UK. In excess of 250 entries are received each year. Racing takes place upstream on the 1000-metre course that stretches alongside Hampton Court Palace and ends just downstream of the River Mole.
Draw and Order of Racing Now Available!

Having now received 238 entries, entries have been suspended, as this will fill our racing programme. You can still withdraw entries, or may 100% substitutions to an entered crew up to 9am on 11 May 2013. Crew compositions will only be baselined for substitutions at that point.
As there may be withdrawals in the next week and as not all entries will get a race (if there are fewer than 4 entries in the event and there isn't a suitable alternative event to move the entry to) we may be able to accommodate a few more crews. If you wish to go on the waiting list, please email the entries secretary.
The entries secretary will contact entries in events with fewer than 4 entries over the next few days to discuss alternative events to move them to, where available. Please continue not to pay yet - you'll be emailed when we want you to pay!
