About the project

Formed in 1870, Ballarat City Rowing Club is one of Australia's oldest rowing clubs. With success at the local, state, national and international level we have a proud competitive history. On the eastern shore of Lake Wendouree the club has been a focus of rowing in Ballarat for over 140 years, including hosting rowing teams during the 1956 Olympic Rowing Regatta.

Today, Ballarat City Rowing Club caters for school, club and masters rowers all striving to achieve their rowing goals. Our members have won medals at State Championships, State Masters Championships and National Masters Championships, and have competed at regattas in New Zealand and the UK. All of our members support our purpose: to identify, support and encourage our members to maximise their potential at all levels of rowing and to promote the sport of rowing in the community whilst highlighting fitness, friendship, fun and teamwork.

Rowing requires significant resources – boats, oars, tinnies, cox boxes, trailers, safe launching facilities, gym equipment – the list goes on. To keep our club successful, we need your help.

The Ballarat City Rowing Club Foundation was set up to support the ongoing needs of the club and the local rowing community by enabling club members and supporters to make tax deductible donations towards the improvement and safety of all elements of the club and its facilities. Specifically, donations to the Ballarat City Rowing Club Foundation will support the costs associated with providing members and the community to access leading facilities, equipment, training and coaching.

We are seeking your support to bring our vision to life and to support the ongoing excellence and growth of our club. Donate today!
