Local fitness gym centre has aligned themselves with one of the oldest and largest sports clubs in the inner Auckland city region as a returning sponsor. It is exciting times for the club with the growth of rugby league continuing through the exposure of its players represented in the Vodafone Warriors and International rugby league teams (including women's grades). This relationship was forged in 2020 when Richmond senior club members required a local gym for summer off-season training as well as winter training in doors.
Since then both the Richmond club and Fort Knox Grey Lynn have enjoyed many work outs with experienced gym staff and Personal Trainers as well as the major Richmond club events including Richmond's Senior End of Year Award Prize Giving evenings, and sponsors nights held over the past few years.
Fort Knox Grey Lynn’s high profile in the Grey Lynn and Ponsonby community sits comfortably with Richmond’s own profile within the wider Grey Lynn community. Club Chairman Gus Fepuleai commented “it is tough for the Richmond Rovers club to maintain our high standards both on the field and off. The generous support of Fort Knox Grey Lynn allows us to continue our player and personal development. As we focus on the tough but challenging Auckland Rugby League competition, we are continuing to set a high benchmark for our club both on and off the field. We can only do this off the back of generous sponsors".
Owner Operator Kerry Knox from Fort Knox Grey Lynn added “Fort Knox Grey Lynn is stoked to again partner with one of New Zealand's most successful sports clubs which has had over 50 Kiwi International players developed from this local club. We see it as a great opportunity to assist the club with the development of their junior and senior players from the Richmond juniors ages five up to the Premiers & Women’s as well as its loyal senior club members. The Richmond club is dedicated to making rugby league accessible and fun for everyone from the social player to those more serious and we want to support that”.
