Encounter Paddling Sponsorship

Encounter Paddling and Sponsorship


Although Encounter Paddling is a financially viable club, sponsorships are sought to assist with the funding of relevant community projects. The Club will sensibly and commercially recognise the important contribution of its sponsors. For our part, we provide a relationship with a community activity that encourages fitness, skill development and competition. The club caters for people of differing ages and backgrounds to undertake an extremely healthy activity in a friendly Club environment. Encounter Paddling wishes to thank it's sponsors and encourage members and visitors to support these. Club sponsors are detailed below and links to their websites are included where applicable. Please take the time to visit these. The club offers three tiers of sponsorship (Club sponsor, Boat sponsor and Friend of Encounter Paddling). The projects funded by sponsorship and the privileges of sponsors are detailed below;
