Barnsley Hot Tubs, based in South Yorkshire, scoop National Industry Awards

Never before has the desire for pool and hot tub ownership been in such huge demand worldwide as it has been in the last two years. No longer possessions of the rich and famous, water leisure products have become, for many homeowners, a serious consideration to enhance their home, lifestyle, health and wellbeing as well as helping to bring family and friends together in homes and gardens across the country; with an aspiration to enjoy every day as a holiday – an #everydaycation!

Leading the way for the water leisure industry, the UK trade associations, SPATA (Swimming Pool and Allied Trades Association) and BISHTA (British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association) annually invite their members to enter the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards. The combined swimming pool, spa, hot tub and wellness industry awards attract entries from companies across Britain (and some from overseas), celebrating the best of construction, design, installation, retail, hire, service and innovation. The awards ceremony is held annually at the Coventry Building Society Arena in Coventry during SPATEX, the UK’s only dedicated international pool, spa and wellness show.

Barnsley Hot Tubs based in South Yorkshire won a Silver BISHTA Award in the Hot Tub Happiness #everydaycation category, a Bronze BISHTA Award in the Residential Hot Tubs £14,000 and over category, a Silver BISHTA Award in the Hot Tubs Change Lives category and a Bronze BISHTA Award in the Hot Tubs in a Holiday Setting category at the 2022 British Pool & Hot Tub Awards ceremony.

Shaun Pickles of Barnsley Hot Tubs Commented: “During our time as BISHTA members, we have won numerous industry accolades and pride ourselves as a multi-award-winning company. This year we are proud to have won two silver and two bronze awards in this national competition”.

With 32 categories to be contested (see a complete list of winners below), this year’s winning and highly commended entries demonstrate the breadth of talent and commitment to quality and service in the industry, even when in the constraints of a pandemic.

Both SPATA and BISHTA work on behalf of the industry, with the consumer at the forefront of their work. Setting Standards and providing a Code of Ethics that their members are expected to abide by. Providing a route for consumers to purchase water leisure products and services, with the peace of mind that companies displaying the trade association logos that are listed on the association’s respective websites are reputable and trusted businesses, working to appropriate standards.
