POSTED ON November 23, 2021 @ 6:30 am

Australia’s leading sun safe clothing brand, SParms has just announced a partnership with Walkinshaw Sports to expand distribution of the SParms range of sun safe clothing products to a broader range of golf retail outlets across Australia and New Zealand.

“We are absolutely thrilled to announce the new partnership and we are looking forward to sharing our wonderful fashion range with more golfers nationally,” SParms founder and director, Mimi Lee said.

Leading AU company

Walkinshaw Sports is Australia’s leading golf distribution company and a one-stop house of brands for over 750 golf accounts nationally. Walkinshaw Sports distributes leading golf brands such as Under Armour, Cross, Clicgear, Rovic, Motocaddy, AFL, NRL and its own brands such as PGF, Optima and Walkinshaw.

“The new partnership with SParms is really exciting and a great opportunity for our company to promote a brand that plays a key role in sun protection which is really important for golfers. We look forward to making SParms products accessible to golfers across the country through our national account base of golf courses and golf retail outlets,” Walkinshaw Sports general manager Dan Harrap said.

Australia’s very own Karrie Webb, and many other well-known golfers such as Hannah Green and Katherine Kirk religiously wear SParms.  SParms has earned its name as the ‘official sun sleeve on tour’ of the LPGA.  It has also just been named as the official sponsor of the PGA Legends Tour.

Karrie Webb said “I have worn these for 8 years and love them because they keep me cool, comfortable and provide the best and most effective UPF 50+ sun protection available when I am out on course in the heat.

Sun Protection

Being a big fan of the product and knowing how SParms can play an important role in sun protection for golfers, I am really pleased that SParms have formed a partnership with Australia’s leading golf distribution company Walkinshaw Sports to make their product more accessible for golfers across Australia. I can’t speak more highly of SParms and really encourage you to make it available to your golfers at your course or retail outlet.”

Mimi Lee added “We don’t want to be the best kept secret in sport any longer.  Introducing our amazing range of sun safe clothing to consumers across Australia and New Zealand is an exciting opportunity for us.  We can’t wait to see our products stocked in golf courses and golf stores across Australia where we can make stylish sun safe clothing more accessible to more people.”
