Great Britain Outrigger now live with GoMembership

Team of Great Britain Outrigger Canoe Athletes

We’re delighted to announce that Great Britain Outrigger is now live with GoMembership.

Great Britain Outrigger is the internationally recognised national governing body for outrigger in the UK. It was established for the primary purpose of promoting and developing the sport of outrigger by perpetuating the culture, history, and traditions of an ancient art form of navigation and watersport. The sport of outrigger is steeped in tradition, and the members of Great Britain Outrigger are very much cultural ambassadors, spreading “aloha” and welcoming everyone to their Ohana, their worldwide paddling family.

Great Britain Outrigger will benefit from joining a community that includes a large number of watersports organisations, through which they can easily share knowledge. British Rowing, British Dragon Boat Racing Association, and Paddle Australia are just a few of their fellow governing bodies which will no doubt provide inspiration that can help Great Britain Outrigger further achieve their purpose.

Great Britain Outrigger is a growing and dynamic organisation with a large membership base. They joined GoMembership to simplify not only their administration but also to improve their members’ experiences when becoming a member or to book an event.

The integrated NGB and Club+ system will benefit those Great Britain Outrigger clubs who have taken on Club+ to ensure the member experience is as seamless as possible. The automated communication and renewals through the system will also alleviate much of the administrative burden previously experienced.

Great Britain Outrigger has added additional value to their membership proposition by launching their own Rewards Scheme through the GoMembership system, which sees their members benefit from thousands of pounds of savings across the UK.

Phil Robinson, GoMembership Commercial Director, said, “I am really excited about Great Britain Outrigger joining the GoMembership community. They’re a very ambitious and forward-thinking organisation that can benefit a lot from not just the software but the other fantastic organisations that make up the community here. We look forward to working closely with them as they continue to grow and enhance the reputation of Outrigger in Great Britain.”

Cameron Taylor, CEO, Great Britain Outrigger, said, “Outrigger is more than a sport. The concept of Ohana is one of the most important aspects of outrigger around the world and we are delighted to now be part of the GoMembership Ohana. As much as we are joining the GoMembership community we see GoMembership as part of our larger worldwide outrigger family.”

“Membership systems can be incredibly clunky and counterintuitive but GoMembership strikes that nice balance of being cost effective and user friendly.”

“We are hosting the Outrigger World Championships in 2022, which will see us welcoming upwards of 3000 of the fastest paddlers in the world to Great Britain. We see the GoMembership system as pivotal to helping us on our organisational path.”
