SAPCA member, DYNAMIK, has secured an extension to its role as “Official Sports Flooring Partner” with British Wheelchair Basketball (BWB), the governing body for wheelchair basketball in the UK.
DYNAMIK has worked with BWB over the past five years, ensuring flooring solutions support inclusivity and are accessible for all users of sporting and non-sporting spaces.
The partnership extension comes at an exciting time for BWB, particularly for the GB teams, which recently returned from the IWBF World Championships in Dubai, after winning silver medals.
Craig Jack, managing director of DYNAMIK, said: “To be asked to extend our partnership beyond the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games really says a lot about the trust BWB has in our advice over the past five years.
“We have certainly changed the way in which the UK looks at playing surfaces, in particular the interaction a surface has on wheelchair users rolling resistance, user fatigue and muscle strain, when not installing ideal playing surfaces.
“We look forward to working with the BWB team and seeing what we can accomplish together in the future.”
Justine Baynes, CEO of BWB, added: “Our partnership with DYNAMIK continues to grow and today’s announcement has been warmly welcomed by the British Wheelchair Basketball family.
“We are truly excited to work with DYNAMIK who mirror our passion and commitment to deliver accessible sport, a critical part of which is being able to play on the right surface.
“The playing surface is vitally important to ensuring our sports participants continued enjoyment of the game.
“We are exceptionally fortunate to work with partners, such as DYNAMIK, who share our fundamental vision that sport has the capacity to transform lives and should be enjoyed by all.
“DYNAMIK’s ongoing support helps us raise awareness about how important accessible facilities are to removing barriers to participation, and hopefully creating a better informed/educated and more inclusive sporting landscape in the UK.”
