In 1845 a new challenge prize was offered for eight-oared crews which, in the following year, was named THE LADIES' CHALLENGE PLATE.
Up to the 1966 Regatta, entries for this event were restricted to boat clubs from colleges, schools and certain other academic institutions within the United Kingdom together with Trinity College, Dublin.
The rules were then widened to permit entries from any college, school or academic institution throughout the world.
In 1985 major changes to the rules for the "Ladies" and the "Thames" removed the 'student' requirement for the "Ladies", which became an event open to crews from any club and is now the second most senior event for men's eights at the Regatta.
