WOW Wonderdogs is a VEKA-sponsored Flyball Club at the very top of its game. It was established in 2009 by Dan Culley, the son of VEKA Group’s Production Planner Yvonne Gray, and has gone from strength to strength in recent years.
With VEKA’s support, the team has been able to invest in new equipment and develop the latest systems to support the club and the training of its dogs. As a result, they swept the board at the British Championships!
Dan explains: “We recently attended the British Flyball Championships which is a two-day event where teams from all over the country are invited to come and race. The top 3 divisions are made up of the top 18 teams in the country.
“We had 5 teams in the top 18 which is particularly impressive given that there were 500 or so teams on the seed list. We then managed to get our A team into Division 1 and, in the process, we once again broke the British record with a time of 15.05 seconds.
“Following this, we fought hard through the double elimination aspect of the event and reached the final, where we competed against ex members of our team. All our hard work obviously paid off, as we took away the title of British Champions and Record Holders 2017!
“I’d like to thank the VEKA team for all their support. It has definitely played a large part in our success.”
VEKA Group’s MD Dave Jones added: “As an industry-leading company, VEKA is proud to support a diverse range of clubs, causes and communities. Whether it’s a charity, school or sports team – we love to hear that our efforts have contributed to their successes. We look forward to seeing what’s next for Dan and the team.”
