Sponsor the Scottish Rowing Indoor Championships
The Scottish Rowing Indoor Championships and the Scottish Rowing Schools Indoor Championships will take place at Glasgow Club Bellahouston on 28th and 29th October. This is an annual event that attracts competitors from across UK and Europe. In 2015, over 1000 people raced over the two days of competition.
Scottish Rowing, the Governing Body for rowing in Scotland is offering sponsorship opportunities across both events.
The Events - Scottish Rowing Schools Indoor Championships
This event was launched in 2014 and doubled in size in 2015 with over 500 participants from across Scotland taking part in a full day of exciting racing. The purpose of the event is to provide an opportunity for pupils from any school in Scotland to access rowing and is the culmination of a National Indoor league for Scottish Schools. It is free to enter, ensuring cost is not a barrier to taking part. After the success of the Scots on the GB Rowing team in Rio, we are anticipating increased interest in this event in 2016.
The Events - Scottish Rowing Indoor Championships
This event is open to anyone and is an opportunity compete against the best rowers in Scotland. It is open to junior and senior competitors with the age range being from 12 to 70+ with over 500 participants in 2015. A range of distances are offered from 500m to 2000m for individuals along with a 3000m team event.
Racing over the 2000m distance is a test of power and endurance and competition is fierce. The event incorporates the Scottish Student Indoor Rowing Championships, resulting in a significant entry from the University sector. Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot Watt and Strathclyde Universities are well represented at the event with Aberdeen, Robert Gordon (RGU), Dundee and Stirling Universities also featuring regularly.
Be a sponsor
We want to continue offering free entry to the Schools event while continuing to grow participation, however to do so we are looking for interested partners to support the event as sponsors. Any sponsorship would apply to both events.
There are various sponsorship opportunities available starting from £300 and these are set out in the media pack.
