A century of rowing and growing at Putney Town RC

From being the first ‘tradesmen’s’ club to reach a final at Henley Royal Regatta, providing a home for an innovative scheme to boost women’s rowing and relocating away from Putney, to building a fantastic new boathouse after a devastating fire, quite a lot has happened at Putney Town RC since it was founded in 1922. Geoff Adams (President) and Pete Jones (past Club Secretary) run through the club’s history.
