Tarw Sports – a new sister company to Carmarthenshire-based Print Inc – supplied branded clothing for this month’s Wheelchair Rugby European Championship.
As sponsor of the tournament, it provided all the workwear and commemorative clothing for the 50-strong team of officials, all the volunteers, the teams in a celebrity match and all competing nations, including Wales and England.
The garments were produced by Tarw Sports which was launched last year by entrepreneur Angela Windsor to offer a bespoke solution for branded sportswear for amateur sports teams and military teams.
Based in Cross Hands in Carmarthenshire, it is a sister company to Print Inc which was set up by Angela to provide print and embroidery services including workwear, PPE, signage and paper print.
The 2023 Wheelchair Rugby European Championship was held in the Principality Stadium in Cardiff from 3 to 7 May.
Angela said: “At Tarw Sports we put a strong focus on channelling the inner strength of the individual, so we really hope that our apparel helps the players especially to feel confident and comfortable as they compete.
“Having this event at the Principality for the first time is a really exciting moment for wheelchair rugby – it’s something we’re very proud to be a part of as a Wales-based brand.”
Chris Walker, event director, added: “We’re delighted to have Tarw Sports on board providing all of our event apparel and ensuring that our workforce look the part as they’re hard at work delivering the event.
“Their enthusiasm at being involved and attention to detail has been evident throughout the design process. It’s great too that we can showcase a fast-growing Welsh brand as part of this event.”
Tarw Sports has already won some major contracts with the military including the Welsh Guards. Its official charity is ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. Its name is the Welsh word for “bull” to reflect the “bull-minded mindset” of refusing to give up or give in, no matter what obstacles stand in your way.
