Welcome to Gateshead and Whickham Swimming Club

100+ years of competitive swimming.

Club sponsorship

We are a swimming club that has been in existence for more that 100 years with a focus on traditional values of fun, fitness and competition. We are one of the foremost swimming clubs in the country with a history of individuals competing successfully at international level.

We are a professionally organised, not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers. I am one of those volunteers having been with the club for a number of years and currently have two swimmers actively participating.

The club survives financially on membership subscriptions and the fundraising efforts of the club volunteers. We are also grateful for the support of Gateshead Council who has contributed to our survival.

In recent years our club has increased its numbers and has a group of dedicated swimmers almost at their peak. However, we are endeavouring to continue this upward trend in a troubled financial climate in which our costs are increasing and at the same time, some of our traditional sources of income are vanishing or have become severely stretched.

We want to be able to provide a secure, stable platform for our members and coaches, by forging sponsorship partnerships with businesses in the area. We want these partnerships to be mutually beneficial, so as a minimum we will reward even the smallest contribution to our club by recognition on our web site and during our galas so would like your organisation to join our growing list of supporters.

I hope you find this information interesting and hope that you can offer some support. If you would like to discuss sponsorship with me, or if you have any questions, please call me or email me using the contact details below.  A full list of options can be found by on the Gateshead and Whickham ASC – Sponsorship Options page.

Thanks in anticipation.
