About us

The Skiff Club, founded in 1895, is the oldest skiff club in existence. We are based on the Middlesex bank of the River Thames, on the non-tidal waters between Teddington Lock and Kingston.

We welcome new members – whether they want to race or just enjoying being on the River Thames in a skiff or punt.
