Winmau Renews Long-standing Relationship with Trina Gulliver MBE
Winmau, the world’s leading darts brand, has announced it is to renew its long-standing sponsorship of Trina Gulliver MBE – The greatest women’s player of all time.
Gulliver has been at the forefront of the women’s game, winning the inaugural BDO Women’s World Championship in 2001 – the first of seven consecutive world titles and 10 in all. Her average of 95.96 in the 2006 world championships has yet to be bettered. In renewing their relationship for a further three years, Gulliver and Winmau have extended what is already one of the longest sponsorships in the sport.
As part of their agreement, Gulliver, who also counts six Winmau World Masters titles, three of them consecutive, as well as victories in the BDO Grand Slam and back-to-back wins in the Las Vegas Classic, amongst her many titles, will continue to wear the Winmau logo at events, public appearances and tournaments.
In addition, she will continue to contribute to the development of Winmau’s range of class-leading products, which include her own range of 23 and 25 gram 85% tungsten steel tip darts.
“Trina is quite simply a legend in the sport,” says Winmau’s Sales and Marketing Director, Ian Flack. “She’s achieved everything there is to achieve and done more than anyone else to put the women’s game where it is today – a fact for which she was honoured with an MBE in 2013.
“In the 20 years we’ve worked with Trina I have come to know her as the consummate professional as well as a friend. She’s a credit to our brand and we have benefitted enormously from her insight and experience when it comes to product development. I am delighted we are able to enter our third decade together.”
Gulliver adds: “Darts has been great to me, and by working with Winmau, my relationship and involvement in the sport has been so much more interesting and worthwhile. I have a great relationship with my ‘Winmau family’ and look forward to the future knowing they will continue to be by my side.”
