Foxlake Adventures at Dunbar, Scotland’s first cable wakeboarding park along with the UK’s only ropes course constructed over water, has been named as a finalist at the first Sports Business Innovation Awards.
The awards, run by Sporting Chance Initiative, will recognise the very best and most innovative businesses and individuals in the Scottish sport industry at a ceremony in Glasgow Science Centre on March 11. Foxlake has been shortlisted in the ‘best new product or service’ category.
This award is for the Scottish small or medium-sized business which has, in the last three years, developed and launched the best new sports or physical activity-related product or service.
The business was established in July 2012 by a group of social entrepreneurs who wanted to create a unique outdoor adventure facility in their community. It has developed year on year since opening its doors, creating an environment for all ages and abilities, as well as increasing outdoor sporting participation and outdoor adventure.
