The British Swimming Pool Federation (BSPF) was formed in 1999 to bring together organisations representing contractors, retailers, manufacturers and trade suppliers of swimming pools, spas, saunas and steam rooms in the United Kingdom.
BSPF members include those companies from the Swimming Pool and Allied Trades Association (SPATA); companies from the British and Irish Spa and Hot Tub Association (BISHTA); and also represented are Pool Industry Promotions (PIP); SPATEX and the Swimming Teachers Association (STA).
SPATA is the trade association for the swimming pool industry, and BISHTA is the trade association for the spa and hot tub industry. PIP is responsible for promoting the whole wet leisure industry and SPATEX is an annual trade show. The Swimming Teachers Association is also a BSPF member and they are the world’s largest swim teaching and lifesaving organisation.
