Tees Dockers were a fairly active club using the Tees RC premises. In the 1970s it was not uncommon for them to produce 5 or 6 crews competing in a regatta. They were financially supported by the National Dock Labour Board and were one of many NDLB supported clubs around the country. Goole Dockers were also regular competitors at Tees Regatta.

After a period of rowing in the 1960s the club became quiet but was revived in 1973 and won Novice Fours at South Hylton Regatta in 1975.

The Club also won the Eights Championship at the National Dock Labour Board Regatta at Putney in 1975.

The club finally closed down in 1977.
