Feeling paw-some at the European Flyball Championships

Added 12 Aug 2016 by GFORCE

This month, along with a host of dynamic dogs and their owners from across the continent, we headed to Ipswich for the European Flyball Championships. Tom Would, marketing coordinator at GFORCE Teamwear, reports back on the action:

If you’re looking to get into Flyball – the sport in which teams of dogs race against each other over a line of hurdles, to a box that releases a tennis ball to be caught when the dog presses the spring-loaded pad, then back to their handlers while carrying the ball - there is no better place to start than the European Flyball Championships.

We were excited to head to Trinity Park, Ipswich, for the event, and to see some of the 218 Flyball clubs from 11 countries compete at the championships.

We arrived with beautiful sunshine and a friendly atmosphere with some of the time trials having already started. As we entered near the playing arena, we saw the countries flags proudly raised around the perimeter and we could feel the heaps of energy from both the dogs and the owners.

The speed and coordination of the dogs was impressive, as was the commitment and dedication of their owners.

Attending the event also gave us the opportunity to talk to some of the teams about our new range of Flyball bandanas - made just for dogs - and matching tops for their owners.

The feedback we received was great. With many clubs excited that their dogs can now match their own team shirts.

A big thank you to the organisers for letting us come down, we had a great time and we look forward to seeing you at the next one!
