Following a rigorous tendering process, we are happy to announce that Rhino have been selected to supply sports kits and leisurewear to clubs from 2019-20, with a three year deal from the 1st July 2019.

The company have almost 40 years of experience working with sports clubs, including England Rugby and teams from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. They currently supply team wear across more than 60 different disciplines and will be working alongside the Students’ Union to develop more, if required.

Vice President Activities, Cassie Coakley says: “I am delighted to announce our new kit supplier will be Rhino. Rhino are a professional and passionate brand who I am happy and excited to be working with. I am proud to say that the process of deciding which supplier to go with has been in the hands of our student sports clubs from start to finish. I am confident that this partnership is going to be positive for all of our teams.”

Twenty companies were contacted to put in bid and from those who applied, sample products were collected. Members of all sports clubs were invited to come and try-out the samples and then cast a vote for their favourite. The companies with the highest votes were then invited to be interviewed by a panel including the VP Activities, Cluster Reps and the Sports Officer.

The SU are looking forward to begin working with Rhino and the Activities team will be contacting clubs in the following weeks, to set up appointments with Rhino to begin discussions about their requirements.
