Scottish Gymnastics has entered a four-year partnership with leading sports brand Kukri.
The deal sees Kukri designing and supplying our performance programmes and national teams with highest quality leisurewear.
Kukri provides industry leading sportswear to athletes and teams across all sports, and have partnerships with professional rugby and cricket clubs, universities and leading sporting schools.
Their bespoke design service allows organisations and clubs to create their own unique look or personalise items from a wide range of sports and leisurewear, and set up a club shop on Kukri’s site for their members to buy kit directly.
Welcoming the partnership, Scottish Gymnastics Chief Executive, Euan Lowe, said: “When looking for a leisure wear partner, you need to consider, is their kit right for our gymnasts and support staff, does it make them look and feel like a team, and represent what Scottish Gymnastics is all about. You are also looking for great customer service so you’re confident orders will be delivered on time ahead of international events.
“Kukri has built its business on values which sit well with Scottish Gymnastics, and we are delighted to be working in partnership with them.”
Chris Marshall, Kukri Sports Sales Director of GB and Europe, said: ‘’We are excited to announce a new four-year partnership with Scottish Gymnastics.
“At Kukri we pride ourselves on innovation, quality, and professionalism. We understand the importance of having a unified look when representing your country and we’re confident our leisurewear range reflects this.
“We always relish the opportunity to work with partners who have a similar desire to push the boundaries. The athlete journey from grassroots to elite level is a focus area for us and we look forward to being part of that. We aim to grow together for the good of the sport.’’
Kukri’s Scottish represenitive will be at the Scottish Artistic Gymnastics Championships on 23 and 24 February at Bell’s Sports Centre in Perth, so clubs can chat about and see their range of leisurewear.
