Evolution5 are proud to announce their 5 year sponsorship of Solent Kestrels Basketball Club.  Evolution5 are excited to be part of Kestrel’s 5 year development plan to achieve their goal of playing in the British Basketball League (BBL), the UK’s highest level of basketball.


Evolution5 employee Sam Chadwick has played and coached for the Solent Kestrels Junior Programme for over 10 years. He approached company directors after the club was promoted to National League Division 2 and were planning their return to Fleming Park Leisure Centre, seeing it as a great opportunity to develop links between Evolution5 and his club.

This has led to a 5 year agreement including shirt sponsorship & branding between Evolution5 and Solent Kestrels with the potential for the club to secure performance related bonuses for achievements such as winning the league, gaining promotion and, in the long-term, reaching the BBL.

Evolution5 see this as a great opportunity to forge strong links between itself and the community and act in a corporate socially responsible manner by supporting our local community.

Jamie Barrett, Evolution5 Managing Director, had this to say about the agreement.

Evolution5 are committed to making a positive contribution to our local community and as such sponsoring Solent Kestrels is an exciting opportunity. Evolution5 now have the chance to forge strong links with a local team who have great plans for the coming years.

As an employer, we believe in supporting our staff and Sam’s passion for Basketball and involvement as a coach for Kestrels was undoubtedly a factor in deciding to sponsor the team. Moreover, we were impressed with Solent Kestrels involvement across the various levels of the sport and the team’s commitment to enhancing the health and fitness of children within the local area.

Solent Kestrels’ have an ambitious goal to reach the BBL together with the passion and determination to make it happen. As sponsors we can be part of their journey and enable them to concentrate on the training and development of their team.

All at Evolution5 look forward to supporting and following the Solent Kestrels as they start their journey towards the BBL.

Kestrels tip off their National League Division 2 campaign this Saturday at Fleming Park Leisure Centre, Eastleigh (17th October 2015), it would be great for you to join us in watching the game.
