|Aqua Sphere Highly Commended at Sports Trade Awards|
UK - July, 2013
Swim product innovator Aqua Sphere is celebrating after being highly commended at the inaugural Sports Trade Awards on 7th July. The awards, run by one of the UK's largest independently owned publishers, Datateam Business Media, in association with the buying group STAG, FSPA and Sporting Goods Business Magazine, have been devised to honour the achievements of sports retailers, brands and marketing companies. A secure online voting process, verified by third party scrutinizers, saw Aqua Sphere gain the 'Highly Commended' accolade in the highly coveted "Sports Brand of the Year" category, beating other global giants and coming second only to sports goliath Adidas.
Aqua Sphere has grown market share within our company consistently over the last three years both within tri and swimming, as a result of innovation and through proactive marketing.

The attainment of highly commended within this wide-open category recognises the impressive impact that Aqua Sphere is making within the UK swim and triathlon markets. ActivInstinct was voted Best Online Retailer and its MD, Simon Millet, said, "Aqua Sphere has grown market share within our company consistently over the last three years both within tri and swimming, as a result of innovation and through proactive marketing."
HPT Sport The Running Man in Cornwall was voted Best Independent Retailer and its owner Sean Jack told us, "Aqua Sphere goggles are undoubtedly the best in the world. I recommend them to customers for their construction quality, comfort and panoramic vision. They are also incredibly easy to fit whilst on the face - just click and pull - with no fiddly on/off adjustment. The wide vision also helps to build water confidence. Once people try them, they are hooked. Aqua Sphere is definitely a force to be reckoned with when it comes to swim kit and I look forward to seeing the continued rise of this innovative hard-working brand across aquatic eyewear, performance swimwear and triathlon wet suits. The UK team deserves this recognition for their efforts. As an independent retailer, Aqua Sphere meets our swim kit needs perfectly."
