WatchPro is loving this summer of sport with the Cricket World Cup and Ashes, Wimbledon, British Grand Prix, and Women’s Football World all stirring up our patriotism and love of the game.
Next up is the Netball World Cup, which takes place in Liverpool from 12–21 July.
David Mr Robinson (DMR) is also getting into the spirit, particularly since the Netball World Cup is taking place in its home city of Liverpool.
The retailer welcomed the England Netball team to DMR Manchester last week, a chance for squad to learn more about luxury watchmaking in the newly re-opened showroom.
They were hosted in The Lounge at DRM, where all twelve players were presented with a TAG Heuer Aquaracer timepiece, along with a personalised DMR jewellery case.
DMR’s watchmakers were on hand to answer any questions about the watches and adjust the Aquaracers for their wrists.
DMR’s event came together thanks to a long-standing friendship between managing director, John Robinson and England Netball coach Tracey Neville — twin sister of Manchester United legend and Lionesses coach Phil Neville and their brother Gary.
Working with the England netball team reaffirms David M Robinson’s commitment to supporting grass roots sports and the involvement of young men and women during the company’s 50th anniversary year.
“We understand that in sport, timing really is everything. It was this knowledge that inspired our gifts for you all. Having attended so many games recently with my family, I have seen the way that my own children have been inspired by your skill and dedication, which makes today so special,” Mr Robinson told the England team on the day.
