Harriers clear the image hurdle with GFORCE

Harriers clear the image hurdle with GFORCE

As one of the most respected athletics clubs in the UK, Oldham and Royton Harriers felt it was important that its team coaches projected a unified and professional image, so called in the Gymphlex team to develop a corporate image for coach tracksuits.

With Gymphlex’s GFORCE range new to the market, Oldham and Royton Harriers was able to select a professional quality tracksuit in the club’s colours and personalise it with both embroidered and printed club badges.

The tracksuits have been so successful, the club is now preparing to roll them out to athletes.

Oldham and Royton Harriers was founded in 1898 and is committed to the promotion of athletics and sporting excellence to the local community.

The club provides a nurturing family environment to support young athletes in reaching their full potential, from keeping fit to competing in the Olympics.

Community athletics coach, Lee Whitehead, explains: “We decided that the time had come for the club to invest in some corporate teamwear, and after investigating several suppliers on the market we plumped for GFORCE from Gymphlex as we were genuinely impressed with the quality of the garments and the incredible range of options for personalisation.

“We have now been wearing the tracksuits for a couple of months and they still look in great condition, and have provided much needed warmth through the winter training sessions.

“On club nights coaches are now easily identifiable and can be distinguished from parents and spectators, making it far easier for new club members who are still finding their feet and building their confidence.

“This is just what we are hoping for and aim to build this club identity further by the development of a club tracksuit for members.”

The coaches are currently wearing the tracksuit, produced in the team colours of red and white.
