Loughborough Sport is thrilled to announce its long-standing partnership with Computacenter has been extended for another year.

The new 12-month deal will see Computacenter continue to support elite-level female and Para sport programmes as the main sponsors of Loughborough Lightning Wheelchair Basketball as well as supporting Loughborough Lightning Netball, and the Loughborough Lightning Cycling team and Loughborough Cycling Academy.

Colleagues from the leading independent technology business will also continue to benefit from Loughborough’s enviable sporting excellence, through its delivery of High-Performance Learning and Development programmes, where they can learn the principles of success and bouncing back from failure from world-leading coaches and athletes to educate them on positive mindset.

As part of the agreement, Computacenter will continue their focus to attract top-quality Loughborough students into their award-winning graduate training schemes.

Rich Ellis, Head of Commercial Partnerships and Sports Facilities, Loughborough University said: “Our partnership with Computacenter continues to flourish and evolve and we’re incredibly proud to be working alongside a partner of such quality and reputation.

“Computacenter’s values align closely with ours as a sporting institution, with their recent support paramount to our successes. We’re all really looking forward to another year together."

Clare Parry-Jones, Sales Enablement Director, Europe & Sustainability Champion at Computacenter said: “The continued success of this partnership is largely down to a shared passion for excellence. It’s imperative at Computacenter that we invest in people and this programme gives us a win/win scenario where we can invest in the dreams and aspirations of athletes while helping our own people reach their professional peak. It really is a very rewarding and special partnership for all involved.”
