British Gymnastics continues to go from strength to strength with the announcement of a new multi-year partnership with GYMNOVA, leading international suppliers of gymnastics equipment. The agreement sees the company become an official supplier of gymnastic equipment to the organisation.
British Gymnastics is the UK Governing Body for the sport of gymnastics. It exists to support, lead and inspire all those involved or interested in gymnastics; from creating new programmes and activities at grass roots to helping the development of top-level talent and delivering world-class events across the UK. British Gymnastics was recently named Governing Body of the Year in the 2016 BT Sports Industry Awards. The Sports Industry panel were particularly impressed by the growth shown across the sport, in the revenue, the numbers participating in recreational gymnastics and of course the elite success with GB gymnasts winning consistently on the world stage. The recent World Championships was seen as a huge success and the judges felt British Gymnastics showed great vision with their innovations and new technologies.
GYMNOVA continuously innovates and plays a part in the development of gymnastics. Established in 1978 by two former gymnasts and trainers, GYMNOVA has become a global leader specialising in the design, manufacture and distribution of gymnastic equipment.
Speaking about the new partnership, which comes into effect immediately, British Gymnastics Executive Director of Technical & Education, Martin Reddin said: "British Gymnastics is delighted to announce this partnership. GYMNOVA are widely recognised as a global leader in gymnastic equipment with a reputation for excellence, quality and detail in their specialist field.Their formal involvement in British Gymnastics events will be welcomed by our high performance team, competing gymnasts and coaches. We would like to thank GYMNOVA for their support"
Phillip Wattleworth, Managing Director GYMNOVA UK Ltd, added:"It is with enormous pleasure that GYMNOVA becomes Official Equipment Supplier to British Gymnastics. In doing so, we will provide equipment to the full British Gymnastics competition calendar until the end of 2020. GYMNOVA has previously provided equipment for many of the world’s major events including the London 2012 Olympic Games, 2014 Commonwealth Games and the 2015 World Championships. Everyone here at GYMNOVA looks forward to playing their part in contributing to the success of this amazing sport."
