To compete with other clubs in terms of equipment and training opportunities and to continue to allow as many students as possible to access the sport of rowing, we are now looking to secure sponsorship for the club.

Sponsorship is vital to our club, which could not survive without the support of the many companies and individuals who have provided assistance either financially or in kind. If you feel that you may be able to provide any support please do not hesitate to contact us.

One of our key sponsorship and fundraising activities for the next few years will be the development of our new club house. We are hoping to be able to develop a dedicated home for Takapuna Grammar School Rowing Club on a prominent location on the Bayswater Wharf, overlooking the Auckland Central Business District and on the route to the proposed new ferry terminal.

 The footfall past this building averages between 300 and 400 patrons a day,  therefore is significant all year round with local users as well as the rowing community.

New Club House For Takapuna Grammar Rowing Club

Takapuna Grammar School Rowing Club is a vibrant and growing club but our current club/boathouse needs to be moved as part of the Bayswater Public Transport Ferry Facility Upgrade. 

This project allows us to develop a new purpose built clubhouse that will provide fit-for-purpose facilities that will help us to meet demand, significantly increase participation in the sport, inspire those who row, open up the club to new users and provide space for social activity. All this will be housed within an iconic and sustainable new-build clubhouse, prominently located on the banks of the Waitemata Harbour.

The existing clubhouse will be demolished and in its place an exciting new clubhouse will be constructed. Our new facilities could include: 

  • A large boat storage area

  • A specific area for storage of launch boats and workshop area

  • Male and female changing rooms and toilet facilities

  • A weights room

  • A gym

  • Erg training facilities 

  • Function room

  • Bar area and kitchen

  • Physio/first aid area

  • Office

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship plays a vital part in our clubs success through subsidising the costs of membership, capital expenditure, regatta hosting and competing.  Our sponsors gain exposure to many affluent spectators, fans throughout the Devonport, Bayswater and Takapuna area, the surrounding communities and nationally while helping support and making a difference in many people’s lives.

In addition to financial support through sponsorship we are also seeking support and sponsorship through the donations of goods and services to be offered in our auction and raffle based fundraisers. The two options we offer in exchange is to provide a tax receipt for a donation in kind or provide a sponsor package level equivalent to the fair market value of the goods or services being offered in exchange.

We offer customised sponsor packaging and promotional opportunities that can be tailored to best fit your marketing and promotional opportunities.

Examples of sponsorship benefits includes, but is not limited to:

  • Use of Takapuna Grammar School Clubhouse outer walls and balcony for banners—temporary or permanent. 

  • Sponsor presence at Takapuna Grammar School Rowing Club events

  • Sponsor named room/facility

  • Sponsorship of individual Takapuna Grammar School Rowing Club hosted events

  • Acknowledgement of the sponsor on the club website

  • Sponsorship of a particular crew

  • Sponsor a boat

  • Recruitment opportunities
