GameTime Announces Agreement with Inclusive PlayA(R)

Will Be Exclusive Distributor of UK Company's Product

The partnership between the two playground equipment manufacturers will introduce new products to the North American and Mexican market.

GameTime, a PlayCore company, is pleased to announce an expanded partnership with Inclusive PlayA(R), which is headquartered in the United Kingdom, and has been a leader in the design of inclusive playground products since 2006.

"Their products are among Europe's most sought-after park amenities, and now they will be available in North America," the announcement read. "In 2018, (we) began distributing a "roll-on" inclusive whirl, an innovation they brought to the market 14 years ago - the first of its kind. The expanded partnership will make us the exclusive distributor of a suite of their products in the United States, Canada and Mexico. "

"(They have) long made it their mission to adapt popular playground activities or create innovative new products that make play possible for children of all abilities," said Tom Norquist, senior vice president with PlayCore. "Their commitment to inclusive play mirrors our own. We are proud to partner with them to bring their unique offering to North American parks and playgrounds."

Among the new products available are Infinity Bowl, a single user spinner at transfer height for people of all abilities; Fusion, a multi-user spinner designed to provide additional postural support; and Surfboard, a modern, inclusive balance activity.

Parks and recreation leaders from across America got their first look at these new products at the 2019 National Recreation and Parks Association Conference and Expo September 24-26, in Baltimore, Maryland.

"NRPA is a great showcase for our products and for our new partnership," said Paul Hoenigmann, director of Inclusive Play. "Our mission is to design, develop and manufacture quality products that enable children - no matter what their ability - to play together. With (our new partner), we will be able to bring inclusive play to more people. It's an exciting opportunity."
