Ottawa, ON -- Bowls Canada is thrilled to announce that Kukri Sports is the official apparel sponsor of Bowls Canada Boulingrin.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Bowls Canada,” says Jamie Williams, Sales Director Kukri Sports Canada. “It has been a pleasure to work with the Bowls Canada team and their forward thinking approach, which I believe will really help to increase participation in the sport over the coming years.”
“To have Kukri Sports on board with Bowls Canada is outstanding”, says Anna Mees, Executive Director of Bowls Canada. “Jamie and his team really understand the needs of our athletes. Kukri Sports has a solid reputation of providing good-looking clothing that is extremely functional both on and off the greens. We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership.”
Kukri Sports is an international Sportswear brand, specializing in customized product for teams competing in over 75 different sports. Kukri’s ever growing list of partners ranges from International and professional teams, to amateur and recreational teams or Schools, Colleges and Universities.
The name ‘Kukri’ was derived from a well-travelled rugby team ‘The Flying Kukris’. They were British with a multi-national twist and like their icons the Gurkhas and their Kukri knife; they represented discipline, teamwork and a smiling winning spirit. From there our ‘Chang’ logo (the Kukri K), a simplified Chinese character was developed. It means ‘long life’ – one of the potential benefits of sport and an international statement of our ambition.
Over recent years Kukri has established itself within the Lawn bowls market, sponsoring the likes of Bowls Scotland, Ontario Lawn Bowls and Bowls BC and more recently Bowls Canada.
