Sports clubs in desperate need get celebrity makeover!

Ex-All Black Israel Dagg and designer Catherine Portland.

Clubhouse Rescue is a heart-warming and uplifting new Bravo New Zealand reality series that sees New Zealand sporting heroes coming to the rescue of the nation’s most deserving grassroots sports clubs and bringing the community together.

Ex-All Blacks Israel Dagg and Stephen Donald are joined by an expert makeover team of designers Hamish Dodd and Catherine Portland, and project manager Dean Larritt.

Armed with their comedic banter and chemistry, they tackle major renovations with gusto, and drive fundraising opportunities to help struggling local grassroots sports clubs stay alive and thrive.

The clubs are often the heart of their communities, bringing kids and parents together. They have all seen better days, and many have been the breeding ground for national and international sporting stars over the years.

The series kicks off at Hibiscus Coast Football Club on the stunning shores of Stanmore Bay, just north of Auckland.

With more than 1000 members, this is the main hub for the coastal football community.

However, the club’s changing rooms (known as “the dungeon”) were in a desperate state, without doors for privacy, making them inadequate for the large and growing female membership.

The team gets to work kicking some transformational goals and bringing the much-loved club back to life!

Bravo New Zealand premieres this new series at 7.30pm on Friday, October 21.
