Invest in Sport - Sponsors Wanted

Are you interested in supporting your local community ?

Have you considered sponsoring a sports club?

Sponsoring Devil’s Elbow Rowing Club is a great opportunity for you to put something back into your community. During the course of a year hundreds of people will use the facilities at DERC during our Pub & Club Regatta and Scratch Sprint Races and the various other events we hold. We are always seeking financial help to aid in the running and maintenance of our facilities and would encourage both individuals and local businesses to get involved with the Club. Any donations would be gratefully received and put to great use.

Current Sponsors


Redhill Marina - Donated used halved railway sleepers which have been used to rebuild the landing stage.

Harlow Brothers - Helped with providing the wood for the new boathouse floor.

There are a number of sponsorship options available:

Headline Sponsor a business, or individual, who makes a substantial annual contribution to the club.We would place the sponsors name and logo on our boathouse and clubhouse and the club website. We would endeavour to mention the sponsor in any publicity material, such as when our rowers achieve national or international success. We'd also invite the sponsor and any guests they wish to bring to our regatta to watch the racing from our Sponsors Enclosure and present prizes to winners.

General sponsorship of the club contributing, either financially or by offering free materials and or services, towards maintenance of the clubhouse and equipment. In return for this, we could offer the placement of advertising material on the club website and within the clubhouse.

Equipment sponsorship purchasing items of equipment to support the clubs competitive and recreational rowing ambitions.Where possible we would mark the equipment with your logo and place advertising material on the club website. If the item sponsored was a boat, the boat could have a name of your choosing.

The funds you provide us with will be incredibly helpful to the club, improving our facilities and resources so we can offer more to our community, and we believe these kind of arrangements should be reciprocal. As well as providing promotional opportunities for your business we also invite sponsors to attend our Pub & Club Regatta and Scratch Sprint Regatta, where sponsors and their guests can enjoy the racing from a prime location. Additionally, there are events throughout the year which you would be more than welcome to attend.
