Welcome to the website of the Granta Rats, a.k.a. the Cambridge University Punting Society!
We exist to promote non-competitive boating among members of Cambridge University. To this end, we run a great value self-hire punt booking service (see bookings), along with a few social events throughout the year.
To join us in our general river-themed merriment, simply email us to ask about payment methods (cheque or direct bank transfer). This entitles you to free punting for the rest of the academic year. Joining costs £20, which is less than the normal cost of renting a punt once. Bargain!
Fancy joining but don't know how to punt?! Have no fear! We offer free punting “lessons” to new members in the Michaelmas Term.
