Rowing is a competitive sport and there is no shortage of opportunities to compete.   As an independent rowing club, TGS competes in both club and school events.  Competition at all levels is fierce and this provides an excellent development platform for young rowers, in both areas ability and sportsmanship. 

The rowing season culminates in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Regatta, at which the Maadi Cup is raced and for which the event is more commonly known. The regatta is the largest school sports event in the Southern Hemisphere, with over 2100 rowers from 125 secondary schools participating in 2014.  The regatta is held annually in late March, alternating between the country's two main rowing venues: Lake Karapiro near Cambridge (odd years), and Lake Ruataniwha near Twizel (even years).
