Furnivall Sculling Club is a rowing club based on the Tideway in Hammersmith, London. It was founded as Hammersmith Sculling Club in 1896 by Dr Frederick James Furnivall, after whom riverside gardens, Furnivall Gardens, in Hammersmith are named. For its initial five years, in the reign of Queen Victoria, the club was for women only and hosted the world's first female rowing team. Furnivall extended membership to men in 1901. The club colours are a precise pallette: myrtle and old gold.
