Butterfly and Tees Sport, the UK’s premier suppliers of table tennis equipment, has today confirmed that it will continue to support the British Para Table Tennis Team with a contract that will supply the team with Butterfly clothing and equipment beyond Paris 2024.
The agreement covers all the squads in the programme, from the elite Performance squad through to the Development and Futures squads.
“This is brilliant news for British Para Table Tennis and for our programmes,” said BPTT Performance Director Gorazd Vecko. “As with any sport the equipment and clothing is hugely important in both training and competition and Butterfly is superb quality and the best available in table tennis.
“I would like to thank Butterfly Europe, Tees Sport and Butterfly UK for their continued support and their belief in our programmes and our athletes. It has played a big part in our success over the past 10 years, and we hope to reward their faith and commitment with more achievements in major championships.”
Alan Ransome, Managing Director of Tees Sport and Butterfly UK, said: “Butterfly Europe, Butterfly UK and Tees Sport are appreciative of the brilliant work that Gorazd and his team are doing in Sheffield and are delighted to continue our successful relationship with British Para Table Tennis.
“We are very pleased with the progress that BPTT has made over the period of the current contract and the success they have had at major championships, and we wish the team every success in the future.”
Butterfly and Tees Sport also supports Table Tennis England, Table Tennis Wales and Table Tennis Scotland and supplied the equipment for the World Championships in Manchester, European Championships in Birmingham, Commonwealth Games in Manchester and Glasgow as well as many National Championships. They are also working with BPTT on its bid to host the European Para Table Tennis Championships in 2023.
