Oyster Pools & Hot Tub Celebrates Award for Retail Excellence

Once a year two governing bodies (SPATA & BISHTA) combine to produce the most prestigious award ceremony in the industry. BISHTA (British & Irish Spa & Hot Tub Association) also celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2023.

This was an unforgettable event that showcased the crème de la crème of the industry! Companies that strived for excellence, adhered to industry-recognized standards and codes of ethics, and stood out as high-calibre professionals were in the spotlight.

This year’s ceremony took place on the 31st of January as part of the Industry Gala Evening hosted by the British Swimming Pool Federation (BSPF) at the Coventry Building Society Arena in the West Midlands, during SPATEX, the UK’s premier international pool, spa, and wellness show.

The big winner of the night was none other than Oyster Pools & Hot Tubs, who took home the 2023 Peter Geekie Award for Retail Excellence from SPATA, The Swimming Pool, and Allied Trades Association.

Gareth Coote from Oyster Pools & Hot Tubs said, “Oyster is a well-established family business in Monmouthshire, trading from the same show site for over 45 years, designing and constructing swimming pools and installing thousands of Hot Tubs over the years.”

“We are the longest-established Jacuzzi® dealership in the UK and the largest within Wales and the West of England. As a multi-award-winning company, we have been the proud recipient of many industry awards over the years”.

“Winning the Peter Geekie award in 2008, 2011, 2012, 2016, 2019, and now in 2022 for the sixth time. We are ecstatic to have received this top national SPATA award at this year’s British Pool & Hot Tub Awards it’s a real team effort we can all be proud of”.

Before entries were judged by the panel of technical experts and specialist judges from the pool and hot tub industry, all entries were thoroughly reviewed for their merits to ensure they met industry standards.

With 32 categories up for grabs, this year’s winners and highly commended entries were a testament to the industry’s talent and commitment to quality and service. It was with great pleasure that Oyster Pools and Hot Tubs walked away with the Peter Geekie Award for Retail Excellence.

With support from top names such as AstralPool UK, Calorex, Certikin, and many more, the 2023 British Pool & Hot Tub Awards was an event to remember. Take your first step towards finding your dream pool today by visiting www.oysterpools.co.uk or call 01291 690614.
