Sponsorship & Partners
Why should you sponsor our club?
Maidstone Swimming Club is celebrating its 175th anniversary in 2019. Formed in 1844, we are recognised as England’s oldest competitive swimming club. We recognise our rich historical base, whilst aiming to nurture and develop our current and future swimming talent.
We have an enviable record of swimming and diving achievements, and wish to provide our swimmers with the opportunity to fulfil their potential at all levels.
By sponsoring our club, you and/or your business can increase the awareness of your brand (name, logo) and the products and services that you can offer in your local (or wider) community. Sponsoring is not only a very cost-effective way to market your services and products, but it also increases your profile in a positive way.
Why do we need help from sponsors?
We are a non-profit making club, so we rely on the support and generosity of sponsors for our ongoing development and benefit of our members. The only member receiving payment is our Head Coach who is assisted by a committed team of volunteers.
We wish to keep our membership costs and fees as low as possible so that the club is obtainable for all those who would like to join, allowing us to support wider participation from within our local community.
We currently host a Swim England Level 3 licensed meet in November and are looking to extend this to host more meets in 2020. All funds generated by sponsorship will be reinvested into the club to enable us to ensure that our swimmers have access to the training facilities and equipment they require. This could include but not be limited to:
- development and training of our team of coaches and teachers
- increasing the provision of pool time
- repairs and replacement of equipment (starting blocks, timing pads, flags, lane ropes etc.)
- competition software
- trophies and medals
- promotional material
- transportation to team meets
- cost of our hosted club galas and meets
- training camps
What does it cost to sponsor the club?
The club is actively seeking sponsorship partners and further details will be available shortly.
Packages can be tailored to suit the budget of the business or individual and the cost of sponsoring may be a lot less than you think.
