“Our portable equipment allows people to play for real in places they would not have otherwise been able to play. It allows organisers to bring sports to new communities and locations, and lets sport do its job of building strong local and global communities through the sheer fun of getting involved,” Mr Roberts said.
To begin with, the new store will stock Packaworld’s portable Packabocce courts, Goalball Packagoals and adult Water Polo Packagoals. Full size Packaworld water polo fields will also be available for order.
The revolutionary sporting solutions are used in a variety of settings, from schools, parks and leisure centres to backyards, beaches and cruise ships.
“Sport organisers and clubs in Europe have been asking for their own store for a while, so we are pleased to finally be able to meet the demand,” Mr Roberts said.
SILS managing director Willem-Jan Cramer said he was thrilled to be supporting Packaworld’s international growth.
“Packaworld is a great business making a big difference for sporting communities around the world. We’re pleased to be able to help make portable bocce courts, water polo nets and goalball goals easily accessible to Packaworld’s European customers.”
Packaworld ships products globally from warehouses in New Zealand, Australia, China, USA, and now Europe. It is a major supplier of the Special Olympics movement and Blind Sport, along with many other competitive and social sports leagues around the world.
