Head Of The River Race
Takes place every year two weeks before the Boat Race in March. Hundred's of crews from London rowing clubs, including the London Rowing Club, row the Boat Race course...backwards (Mortlake to Putney) and is a marvelous sight to see all these crews on the water.
The BNY Mellon Boat Race - Oxford vs. Cambridge
Possibly...definitely, the most famous rowing race in the world takes place between the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge on the tideway course between Putney and Mortlake. A 4 and a quarter mile course that is fiercely fought over every year in March/April and has been raced since 1829, making it one of sports longest running rivalries
Henley Royal Regatta
2 - 6 July
Taking place on the first weekend in July this quintessentially British sporting and social phenomenom remains uncorrupted by the outside world and is possibly the last real bastion of rigid dress codes with booklets on how to dress for the event coming with the tickets. Boaters and blazers abound...but not mobile phones which are banned in the Steward's Enclosure.
The Hackett Rundle Cup - Tidworth
Traditionally takes place at Tidworth Polo Club in Wiltshire where the Army Polo Team takes on thier fiercest rivals, the Royal Navy. A grudge match that always throws up a few surprises including one or two appearances of either of the Princes. The Tidworth Polo Club offers a splendid back drop to this family orientated polo event in the middle of July
