Home Counties toast success at the 2015 SPATA industry swimming pool awards.

Some of the most innovative swimming pool companies were celebrating recently after collecting awards at the  2015 SPATA Awards.

The Swimming Pool Allied Trade Association (SPATA) Awards were held at the Ricoh Centre, Coventry home of SPATEX the UK's largest swimming pool and hot tub exhibition.

The Home Counties team won gold in the prestigious Peter Geekie Award category for retail excellence. They were also delighted that an entry from previous year for a "Cascade" liner pool installed near Chichester, West Sussex had been upgraded from Silver to Gold following a review and disqualification of a competing entry . This also meant a Home Counties pool in fourth place in the same category was promoted to the Bronze medal position, giving the Home Counties team a haul of three awards.

Home Counties list of SPATA honours now includes 9 Gold Medals, 10 Silver and 2 Bronze in the last ten years, establishing them as the leading SPATA award winning company in the South East.

The awards, organised by SPATA, which represent approximately 200 specialist pool building companies across the UK, highlight the achievements of the pool industry by showcasing the best examples of construction, design, retail and innovation.
