Warrender Baths Club would like to encourage new corporate sponsors to support the Club and its ongoing activities. This is an opportunity for companies or employers to become more closely associated with the Club and our swimmers, to our mutual gain. This is a key opportunity to further develop your corporate responsibility by increasing your involvement in local community sport.
As a not-for-profit organisation operating through a voluntary management committee and Head Coach, Laurel Bailey, who oversees over 14 coaches, the Club’s development is constrained by the high cost of pool hire within Edinburgh. The Club currently has around 340 swimmers, with a Water Polo division of 60 players and over 45 in Masters. Training at nine pools across Edinburgh with over 70 sessions running each week, we also have two squads for those swimmers who have completed the competitive element of their training but wish to continue swimming for fitness and social benefits.
Our coaching team is committed to helping every swimmer in the programme reach his or her maximum potential by offering an unrivalled and comprehensive training programme that adheres to the principles of long-term athlete development and provides each swimmer with the opportunities they need to progress within the sport. We are delighted that Scott Quin will represent Great Britain at the IPC World Championships for the third time in Mexico this September, swimming the SB14 100m breaststroke, where he hopes to go one better than his last result (Silver at the Paralymics in Rio in 2016). Also competing for Great Britain is 17 year old George Clough. George will swim at the World Junior Championships in Indianapolis this August. This is the first time George has represented Great Britain and he will race the 100 and 200m breaststroke and 200 IM. 16 year old Archie Goodburn was a member of Team GB at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Hungary. Archie was the flag bearer for Great Britain at the Opening Ceremony and made finals in the 200m freestyle and 200IM. Roísín Ramsay was a member of Team Scotland at the Commonwealth Youth Games in the Bahamas. She was the youngest member of the team and finished 7th in the 400m freestyle and 5th in the 4 x 200m mixed freestyle relay.
The Club is looking for corporate sponsorship, ideally over the next 2-3 years. Sponsors will have access to our membership (currently over 600) via swim meets, events, newsletters, website and many other interesting opportunities throughout the year. This is an excellent opportunity for the club to work with a range of sponsors to raise their profile within Warrender.
Our Club Sponsorship Packages – Gold, Silver and Bronze start this September. They are flexible and specifically put together to accommodate varying levels of sponsorship. If you would like more information or would like to discuss becoming a corporate sponsor – Please contact Jeremy Chittleburgh who is more than happy to help.
