Hot Tub Suppliers WIN a Multitude of Awards at the annual British Pool & Hot Tub Awards 2017
Hot Tub Suppliers based in Leicester is celebrating after collecting two Gold and two Bronze Awards at the prestigious British Pool & Hot Tub Awards, hosted by BISHTA and SPATA, held on Tuesday 31st January, at the Ricoh Arena, in Coventry. The British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association (BISHTA) and the Swimming Pool and Allied Trades Association (SPATA) are the relevant bodies upholding standards within the Wet Leisure Industry. Rebranded in 2015, the first SPATA awards were won in 1978, and the first BISHTA awards were won in 2008. These well-established awards are the UK’s number one wet leisure industry accolades.
The BISHTA Gold awards were presented toHot Tub Suppliers for the Hot Tub Hapiness, and the Hot Tubs Change Lives categories. The Hot Tubs Change Lives award celebrates the life-changing benefits that hot tubs and spas provide consumers. This award category focuses on the health benefits of hot tub and spa ownership and how they can make an enormous impact on people’s lives. Hot Tub Suppliers shared their story of young Dayton Smith diagnosed with cerebral palsy. His family purchased a hot tub from Hot Tub Suppliers to improve Dayton’s health. The hot tub has helped Dayton improve his mobility & posture, it has given him a lot of fun and has also allowed him to share valuable time with his family which has both physical & emotional benefits. The hot tub has been fantastic, but of course, the most important part of this whole process is the tremendous strength and character of Dayton plus the support and bond of his loving family.
Arun Sarna from Hot Tub Suppliers said: “It is a great honour to receive this high recognition from BISHTA. We picked up two Gold and two Bronze BISHTA awards at this year’s British Pool & Hot Tub Awards. The end product we produce is a real team effort; we dedicate these awards to all of our team.”
