About the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards

The British Pool & Hot Tub Awards aim to recognise the achievements of the wet leisure industry, by showcasing the best examples of design, construction, installation and innovation and entries are nationwide. BISHTA and SPATA set standards governing the installation, construction and operation of hot tubs, swim and exercise spas, pools, spas, saunas and steam rooms, respectively. Along with establishing a Code of Ethics by which their members abide, the Trade Associations give a voice to the industry. With nearly thirty award categories, the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards reflect the types of pools, spas and hot tubs to suit all kinds of budgets.
Entering the British Pool & Hot Tub Awards also opens the door to Europe, as award-winning companies are eligible to be shortlisted for the European Pool & Spa Awards hosted by EUSA (European Union of Swimming Pool and Spa Associations).
