Hosted by the European Union of Swimming Pool and Spa Associations (EUSA), the annual European Pool and Spa Awards celebrate the most outstanding domestic pools, spas and hot tubs in the Wet Leisure Industry, with award winners from across Europe competing for the highest accolades.
We now know who the judges have voted to be the most beautiful swimming pool builds and hot tub installations in Europe because, on October 24th, the winners of the EUSA Awards 2023 were announced at aquanale in Cologne.
SPATA are delighted to announce that XL Pools, based in Kent, has scooped one of these top accolades this year, with a Bronze in the Domestic Pools with an Enclosure category.
Anthony Exell of XL Pools commented on their win; “As a team, we are delighted to have been awarded at the 2023 European Pool and Spa Awards. Having won previously, we know just how high the bar is set in terms of the quality of the competition, with entries coming from the associations’ national awards, and we celebrate our achievement with enormous pride“.
In the competition 2023, 282 pools from 11 countries participated: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and Turkey.
The EUSA Awards are a competition in which “the best of the best” are chosen, as it is usual for the national associations to enter the winners of their national swimming pool and hot tub prizes. SPATA and BISHTA submit shortlisted entries from the winners of the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards.
The 2023 Awards ceremony was the 11th event, and Mille Őrnmark, EUSA Vice President, directed it. This year, there are winners from seven countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK.
The wet leisure trade associations from the United Kingdom, BISHTA (British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association – www.bishta.co.uk ) and SPATA (Swimming Pool and Allied Trades Association – www.spata.co.uk ) shortlisted entries for the European Pool & Spa Awards from winners of the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards which are held during SPATEX, the annual trade exhibition.
