Mercantile Rowing Club Development Fund

Mercantile Rowing Club was founded in 1880 with the aim to increase the health and recreation of Melbourneäó»s society via the noble sport of rowing. From these idealistic beginnings, we have seen the club successfully produce members, who reflect the clubäó»s current day cultural beliefs:
  • Excellence and service to the sport of rowing
  • Physical and mental health
  • Respect for yourself, club members, crew members and competitors
  • Friendship
Mercantile has consistently produced members who are leaders in the sports from administration, coaching and athletic performance. We have members with skills and ambitions that range from Champions at the local regattas to Olympic Champions. Our members have provided representative service to Australia on the World and Olympic stage, including World and Olympic champions. We boast two Thomas Keller medallists, awarded for an outstanding international rowing career; and a host of Order of Australia Medallists for services to the sport of rowing. Our membership is broad, inclusive and long lasting. Our membership base includes existing active members with a 75-year club membership history, to recent new members from school and masters levels. All are welcome at Mercantile. The club prides itself on providing great facilities, equipment and coaching for its members and relies on donations to be able to do so, which are tax deductible through the club's fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation.
