Clubs New Zealand Family Race Day – Assigning Naming Rights

9 December 2020

We are excited to be starting the 2021 calendar of events with the Clubs New Zealand Family Race Day on Saturday 23rd January at Trentham Racing Course.

This family race day is perfect to pitch up a tent in the sunshine, enjoy a picnic on the lawn and have a flutter on the racing while the kids can run wild on a huge range off FREE activities. 

For Clubs New Zealand members entry is FREE so we would love to see as many of you there as possible: load up the club van, bring a bus load or fly in and make a long weekend of it.

There is a range of promotional material to help you promote the race day to your members.  You can download the promotional artwork below.  Let us know if you require any additional specifications.

Assigning Naming Rights

With the help of Wellington Racing Club, we have assigned naming rights to the 8 races and 5 additional activities that will be held as part of the family race day.

To assign naming rights to the races, we separated the clubs with full-service TAB terminals into areas (the new Clubs New Zealand areas taking effect March 2021 with Upper and Lower South Island combined due to only having two full-service sites).  Each club was assigned a number and then using an online random number generator we selected the club name. 

The on-course activities were randomly selected from Wellington based full-service sites.

The Clubs New Zealand Great Punting Challenge will be available National Wide, and we will be encouraging all clubs to get involved with this – more details to come in the New Year.
