Important announcement regarding COVID-19 and AUSDBF Championship Merchandise

Team Elite are saddened to hear that this event has been cancelled. While the steps taken are necessary for the health and safety for our community, this cancellation comes with some unavoidable disappointment for the athletes who have trained hard for the event and are not being able to compete.

With that in mind, we have been working hard to ensure that we can still supply all of the online orders to date. Rest assured those who have pre-ordered will still receive their goods, which unbeknownst to us, have marked an unprecedented historic moment in time!

“We have had so much support and have so many orders flowing in, that we feel we cannot let these customers down. We will be posting the online orders and absorbing that cost.” ~ Gareth Sykes

Obviously we won’t have a stand to collect from, so we will be posting the garments from week starting 6 April. Those who have paid for postage will receive a refund on their postage.

AUSDBF Towel Pack – those who have already purchased a Beach Towel will automatically receive this deal. Gym & Cooling Towel FREE!

As a small, local business who sponsors the Australian Dragon Boat Federation, we have been overwhelmed with the positive support we have received from the Dragon Boat community who  see the value in purchasing this merchandise and have continued to place orders despite the event being cancelled. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! So we are offering some great deals that you can take advantage of – but stock is limited so get in quick and then tell your team mates!

Finally, we need your help! As suppliers, we are not provided with a list of competitor’s emails, so getting the word out about merchandise can be tricky. Please, please, please, pass this link to online orders around ASAP so that everyone who is entitled to has the chance to order their merch!!! We have extended the online store closing date, it is now open until 29 March 2020 – but hurry as stock has been limited and we expect the gear to sell out soon!
