Highlighting the cream of the crop, the annual British Pool & Hot Tub Awards hosted by SPATA (Swimming Pool and Allied Trade Association) and BISHTA (British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association) spotlights companies striving for the best, working to trade association standards and an industry-recognised code of ethics, distinguishing themselves as high-calibre professionals within their field, and helping to raise standards for the industry.
These awards not only recognise companies for their superior work, celebrating both the technical and aesthetic aspects, but they also create an inspirational gallery of award-winning projects for consumers to view, in the knowledge that as trade association members, every company is expected to work to British and European standards, and to trade ethically.
This year’s award ceremony took place on the evening of Tuesday, 31st January, and is annually part of the Industry Gala Evening, hosted by the BSPF (British Swimming Pool Federation) at the Coventry Building Society Arena in the West Midlands during SPATEX, the UK’s only dedicated international pool, spa, and wellness show (31st January to 2nd February 2023).
Phil Oldershaw hosted the night, and presenting this year's awards were; the BSPF President – Pete Grinnall, SPATA Chairman – Ben Studdy and the BISHTA Chairman – Dorian Davies. The special guest of honour was Keri-anne Payne, a South African-born British swimmer specialising in marathon open water swimming and long-distance freestyle swimming in the pool. She is a two-time 10-kilometre open water world champion and an Olympic silver medallist.
