The 50th Tournament Nationals Are Spiked

June 2002

British Water Ski is proud to announce that Spiked Silver will be title sponsors of the 50th Tournament Nationals.

For the first time ever all three major National Championships - Youth, Open and Senior will take place at the same time at Princes Club, Bedfont, Middlesex from 1st - 4th August, 2002, surely making this the event of the season.

It is only fitting that a new and exciting energy drink - Spiked Silver - should choose to sponsor this ‘mega’ event.

“Staging all three major National Championships on one weekend is completely new for us,” said Gill Hill, Executive Officer of British Water Ski. “It makes this 50th National Championship very special, and we are delighted that it should take place at Princes Club - one of the founding member clubs of the Federation, who are also celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year.”

“We are fortunate to receive ongoing support from our friends at MasterCraft UK who will be supplying the towboats and this new sponsorship from Spiked Silver is crucial to the success of the tournament. We welcome them into our sport with open arms and we look forward to a very exciting few days at Princes”.

Spiked Silver is a sophisticated new energy drink based on real cranberry juice. Its natural flavour and the innovative design of its distinctive new 'waisted' can makes Spiked Silver the choice of young dynamic athletes and spectators alike.

Kaz Balinski, Director of Silver Arrow Establishment, the company behind the drink, commented,

'We're delighted to be able to help the British National Tournament in this way. Waterskiing is a great sport and one that I'm personally very passionate about. If we can help attract more people or media attention to the tournament through sponsorship, that would make us really proud. Our product - Spiked Silver cranberry energy drink - is aimed at young, energetic and fun people with impeccable taste, so it's certainly a great synergy for us. Good luck from all of us to everyone competing!'

The 50th Tournament Nationals will be a fantastic event not only for skiers and enthusiasts but for families and spectators as well. We hope to see you there.
