save the day 3

Over the last two weeks the GB under 20’s basketball team has been training at Braintree College, Colchester Sixth Form College and the University of Essex to prepare for the international basketball season.

Unfortunately, due to the heavy use of the facilities a floor socket at Braintree and a basketball ring at the University of Essex had become damaged and needed replacing. Typically this happened at the worst possible time, only 24 hours before a three day intensive training programme.

Mark Lloyd from the GB’s Under 20’s team contacted Sportsafe to see if we could come and repair the equipment before the training programme.

As soon as we heard about the problem our head office Service Manager arranged an emergency call out rescheduling appointments, and mobilising two of our engineers.

Sportsafe fitted the new floor socket and basketball ring within 24 hours of the calls getting the under 20’s ready for their training program.Perspex Basketball Hoop

We also supplied and installed a new Perspex backboard at Colchester Sixth Form College for the GB team to train with at a cost of over £1,500.00 – free of charge!

The GB team were delighted that we managed to come out at such short notice and very pleased with the final results and the training camp continued on time.

Scott Tatum a representative from the University of Essex and the GB under 20’s team said “I really can’t thank you enough; your support as always is amazing. Sportsafe as always have really dug us out of a hole again, your customer service really is second to none.”
