Newtown Jets

Sydney Mutual Bank is proud to be the major sponsor of the Newtown Jets, the oldest rugby league club in Australia.

This sponsorship is a first for Sydney Mutual Bank and the Jets, which was secured at the start of the 2012 Rugby League season. The Newtown Rugby League Football Club is in its 112th year of competition. Sydney Mutual Bank is very excited to be supporting one of Sydney's most iconic sporting organisations . They play at Henson Park, Marrickville and are one of the most supported and well known teams in the NSW cup, acting as feeder club to the Cronulla Sharks. This sponsorship represents our commitment to benefit local community interests, especially in Sydney's Inner West and Western Suburbs, where so many of our members reside.

Just like Sydney Mutual Bank, the Newtown Jets have a long and proud history in Sydney and they continue to enjoy widespread recognition and support among followers of rugby league. The Sydney Mutual Bank logo appears prominently placed on the front of their jersey and also on the front pf Parkes Leagues Club, their affilated club in Parkes, Central NSW.

Coogee Surf Life Saving Club

Sydney Mutual Bank believes the Coogee Surf Life Saving Club offers a real sense of community spirit. The club offers a great way to meet new people, support the community, keep fit or just have fun. We have been long-time supporters of Coogee Surf Clubs IRB area. The IRB is known as the surf clubs most visible and effective surf life saving tool on any beach and are affectionately known as ‘rubber duckies’. Support from us is an integral component to running these invaluable life saving tools. We offer each year a Scholarship which is awarded to a club volunteer who is doing some sort of full time study and offering his/her time to this fantastic community safety organisation.
