A brief history

This is the Cup the New Zealand Secondary Schools Championship Regatta has taken its name from. Inscribed on the cup is the following:

This cup, the gift of Dr Youssef Bahgat of the Cairo Rowing Club, Egypt, was presented to the Maadi Camp Rowing Club as a token of friendship between members of the Cairo Rowing Club and "Kiwi" oarsmen of the Second NZEF following the winning of the Fryberg Cup by the New Zealand oarsmen in competition with members of the Cairo Rowing Club at a regatta on the Nile on the 20th November, 1943.

The Kiwi oarsmen of Maadi Camp Rowing Club won the regatta for the Freyberg Cup by 11 points to 6. However, they donated the trophy to the Cairo Rowing Club for future competition. In return Dr Bahgat presented the Kiwi oarsmen with the cup that was to become the Maadi Cup. At the conclusion of the war it was brought back to New Zealand where it named the Maadi Cup and presented to the NZARA (now the NZRA) for the annual eight-oared competition among the New Zealand Secondary Schools. The first race was held at Wanganui in 1947 and it was won by Mt. Albert Grammar.

A brief history

In 1981, the Maadi Regatta was held on Lake Horowhenua. That year the Levin Borough council was holding its 75th Jubilee. The Mayor, Jack Bolderson, decided that a fitting memorial would be a cup for the Girls Senior Eight. On the final day he presented the Cup to Wanganui Girls' College.
