SKINS, the compression sportswear company, has signed a three-year agreement which sees them become the Official Supplier of ‘Compression and Therapeutic garments’ to both Team Bath and Students’ Union Sport at the University of Bath.
The deal means that SKINS will exclusively supply Team Bath’s Super league title-winning netball team with the latest technology-driven compression garments which are scientifically proven to enhance performance and recovery while training or playing, and after exercise.
So, too, will a host of top swimmers, judo players, tennis players and track athletes who train at the renowned Sports Training Village, the home of Team Bath.
SKINS are also backing student clubs in the sports of rowing and rugby with an exclusive supply of kit and will offer regular promotional discounts to all other Team Bath athletes and members of the University sports clubs throughout each of the three years of the arrangement.
Stephen Baddeley, Director of Sport at the University of Bath said: “This is a ground-breaking multi-sport deal for the University with a top of the range company who share our performance sport values – values that can be transferred to those in sport and fitness at all levels who strive to get the best out of what they do”.
Tom Janicot, Students’ Union Sport Officer said: “Bath is one of the top Universities in the UK for sport. We take pride in our performance which will now be backed by SKINS in a way which will benefit all student club members. We are delighted to welcome SKINS on board”.
SKINS’ UK General Manager, David Ling said: “SKINS are dedicated to helping sportsmen and women achieve their natural best through innovative design. Team Bath and the University of Bath have a world-class reputation for sport and fitness and we are delighted to be partnering them in this innovative arrangement. We look forward to their success continuing with us as part of the family of great sport that happens in Bath”.
SKINS have also teamed up with Bath Rugby, another local power-house of sport.
In Australia, in 1996, SKINS embarked on a massive challenge: to create a sports garment that improved performance and aided recovery. SKINS invested heavily in research to make this happen and is now Australia’s leading therapeutic compression brand and fast gaining similar recognition around the world.
SKINS continue to make their number one focus research and development in order to improve, rigorously test and expand the range of products. SKINS is the only therapeutic compression sportswear brand supported by numerous independent studies published in peer reviewed medical journals. SKINS are also the only compression garments recommended and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
