Pictons Sponsors Active Luton Diving Competition Challenge
Pictons are sponsoring the Boys Group B 3m event, in which the competitors will be competing with 6 dives, comprising of 3 ‘required’ dives, with a limit on difficulty, and 3 ‘optional’ dives, with no limit on difficulty.
Sukh Saini, Managing Partner of Pictons says “I’m a great believer in the benefit of sports for young people and Pictons is delighted to come on the “diving” board and support this event.
“Supporting the local communities where we are based is the core of our company’s ethos and although we have offices in Hemel Hempstead, Tring and Milton Keynes, Luton is our headquarters and at the heart of everything we do. We’ve just started the Pictons Legal Show on Diverse FM, inviting listeners to call in with their legal queries and sponsoring the Active Luton Diving Challenge event is another way in which we can make a contribution to Luton town.”
The competition has already got 326 entries for its weekend diving event, where there will be 25 competitions over the 3 days, not including the finals for the event. The ages of the competitors range from 10- 30 years old and the boys in the Pictons 3m event will be 14-15yrs old. Each age group is invited to compete in 1m, 3m and Platform challenges.
The Challenge is a 3 day event. Friday 8-8pm, Saturday 8-8pm and Sunday 8-5pm. The Inspire Sports Centre became a national sensation when ITV staged its primetime Saturday night show, Splash, at the new centre last year, starring GB award winning diving champion Tom Daley. The Active Luton Diving Competition has received lot of interest on the back of this hit show.
In addition to Pictons there are 13 other sponsors of the event, with the majority of them being local firms. The Challenge was held at the Inspire Sports Centre for the first time last year, when the centre opened. The Challenge is actually the longest running club event in the country and this will be the 26th annual event. The Challenge was previously held at Wardown Swimming pool by the Luton Kingfishers Diving Club, until last year when the move to Inspire was made and the Kingfishers changed their name to the Luton Diving Club.
