The champions of Leicester
25 May 2016
With Leicester City FC becoming champions of the English Premier League, Mark Selby winning the World Snooker Championship title, and Leicester Tigers securing a Premiership rugby play-off place – Leicester, UK, is familiar with what it means to be a champion.
This is also true of Advance Tapes International Ltd – a Leicester-based independent manufacturer and global supplier of high-quality adhesive tape. Established in 1964, the company’s wide range of adhesive tape solutions have become the preferred choice for athletes and sport clubs in helping them to reach their goals and make dreams come true.
An example is Bulbul Hussain, a wheelchair rugby player who plays for the Great British Paralympic team, who used AT142 cotton cloth protection tape for hand protection during the Olympic Games in 2012 and continues to do so in preparation for this summer’s Rio games in Brazil.
In 2015 the Australian Open chose AT159 polycoated matt cloth tape to match the famous blue courts, while the Leicester Riders basketball team used AT169 and AT6103 clear polythene tape for securing their temporary playing court – whilst their new venue was under construction.
Also available is the AT7 PVC tape, which is regularly used for temporary strapping of socks and protective pads for sports people. As for motor sport, AT175 polycoated cloth tape is also available and can be used for edge protection on aerofoils on vehicles.
“Rugby, tennis, football or cricket. There’s only one chance to get it right when you’re performing. The last thing you need is to be let down by a roll of tape. Choose the right tape for the job – choose Advance Tapes.”
