Eleanor met with members of the UAP team and explored our product development and testing facility with our operations director, Wendy Rushton.
We have been a key sponsor of the Thunder squad since 2016, most recently with our corporate brand, UAP and product brand, Fullex. The logos feature on the front of the 2019 kit which debuted at Thunder’s first game of the season on 5th January.
Manchester Thunder and England player Eleanor Cardwell, said: “Everyone is talking about netball at the moment. This year is going to be a great step forward in how the sport develops and how we can make the sport bigger and better.
“We can’t do that without the support of businesses like UAP who invest in our sport off court which allows us to be the best we can on court.”
Debbie Hallas, managing director of Manchester Thunder, said: “2019 promises to be an exciting year for netball following England’s Commonwealth Games win and this summer’s World Cup in Liverpool.
“We’re proud to continue to have the support of UAP at Manchester Thunder which will help us promote our sport to more fans across the North West. I know this is an exciting time for their business too and we look forward to showcasing the firm throughout the season.”
