The Swimming Pool Allied Trade Association (SPATA) Awards were held at the Brighton Hilton Hotel where SPATEX, the UK’s largest swimming pool and hot tub exhibition, is currently holding its 14thannual trade show.

The awards, organised by SPATA, who represent approximately 200 specialist pool building companies across the UK, with some overseas members, highlights the achievements of the pool industry by showcasing the best examples of construction, design and innovation.

Chris Hayes, Managing Director of the SPATA says “This year was the 34th year of the SPATA Awards, which once again proved to be more popular than previous years, creating tough competition for the judges with a shortlist of 91 entries across 22 categories.  The Awards profile some excellent work from our members and demonstrates the value of choosing a SPATA member to build or renovate your pool.

“The event sees companies from across the UK gather to showcase their most innovative products.  We were delighted to recognise so many of the industry’s hard working companies, these award winners demonstrate that swimming pools and spas bring more to the home than simply leisure; they can be a way to keep healthy, have fun with the children as well as have a focus for relaxation with family and friends.”

Martin Borley, Director of Tanby Swimming Pools, says: “Winning these awards is great recognition for the whole Tanby team who have put a lot of hard work into all of the construction projects this year and we’re absolutely thrilled to win.”
