Mercantile has one of the most successful rowing programs in Australia, ranging from juniors, to elite and masters. We also pride ourselves on long-lasting membership: many of our retired rowers have been members of Mercantile for over fifty years. Whether you are training to race at Nationals, or prefer to stay dry and indoors, Mercantile has a membership package suitable for you.
This class of membership is for athletes competing regularly in competition. It provides for full access to our boathouse including boats, gym and changerooms. Most importantly, this class of membership provides athletes with some of the highest quality coaching in Australian rowing today, graded training programs and backed up with regular sport-science testing.
This class of membership is for active members, particularly in the club and masters squad, who regularly use our boats, but may be competing irregularly. This membership includes access to boats, gym and changerooms.
This class of membership is specially designed for young athletes in secondary school. It provides a similar class of membership as Senior Competitive, with full access to boats, gym, changerooms as well as highest quality coaching and training programs.

This class of membership provides retired rowers, rowing supporters and others with access to our gym and changerooms. Not to be forgotten, it includes full access to the bar – which is open on the first Thursday of every month. You will often catch Senior members enjoying a well-earned drink after a short stint on the ergs in our gym.
