After almost 30 years, Havant Youth Ten Pin Bowling Club finally has a kit to be proud of.
The official team shirt has been created using GFORCE dye sublimation in a bespoke design featuring the team colours, logo and sponsor details.
The 28 members of Havant Bowls Club work hard to keep on top of their game, training weekly and competing regularly throughout the year. Club president, Carla Moore, whose daughter trains and competes with Havant YBC, commented: “My daughter, Leah, has been training with Havant for two years, since she was nine, and before this I had no idea that there was such a serious and committed bowling scene.
“When I began volunteering and took on the presidency one of the first things I wanted to do was tackle the club image. This proved to be trickier than I first thought. Our criteria were fairly straight forward, we wanted a shirt that was dye sublimated, easy to care for, and could be produced in a huge variety of sizes from very small for our littlest team members, to very large. Incredibly GFORCE were the only supplier out there that could fulfil these requests.
“We are so pleased with the final kit. It is not uncommon for our team to play three or four times over a weekend when involved in a competition and with these shirts we can hand wash them overnight and they are dry and ready to wear for the morning. Final word of praise for Sean, our account manager at Gymphlex, who has been incredible at keeping us informed and ensuring that the design and fitting was as smooth as humanly possible. He deserves a medal.”
