Sports, Fitness and Play Equipment

Why buy from the National Public Sector Framework?

This framework is a retender of the previous Sports, Fitness and Gym Equipment framework which expired in May 2023. This iteration includes an expanded scope, a larger focus on services, and additional options for call-off to make tendering for requirements even easier.

The framework scope covers (but is not limited to) the following areas:

Sports equipment and accessories for use in game sports, gymnastics, athletics, strength and resistance, play, health and fitness, testing and measurement, inclusive sports and play, and storage.

Commercial fitness and gym equipment supply, installation, servicing, and maintenance. Equipment offered includes cardio, strength and resistance, health and fitness, functional fitness, inclusive fitness, and storage. Some suppliers are also able to offer gym fitout and design as a turnkey solution.

Playground equipment, supply, installation, servicing, and maintenance. Equipment offered includes multi use play systems, obstacle courses, climbing systems, freestanding playground equipment, educational play, inclusive play, outdoor gym resistance, outdoor gym cardio, outdoor gym functional equipment, inclusive outdoor gym equipment.

The purpose of this framework is not to provide access to contractors who can provide, install and maintain Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGA’s), 3G or other artificial turf pitches, cricket wickets, athletics tracks etc. CPC does have a Synthetic Sports Facilities framework which covers these areas that members can utilise should they wish to do so. The scope additionally does not cover sports clothing, for which CPC offers a PPE, Clothing and Uniforms framework. Furthermore it does not allow members to access contractors who can build or refurbish sports halls, changing rooms or gyms, or to resurface playgrounds as a standalone service; any such works may be acquired by member institutions through the Minor Works Dynamic Purchasing System.

It was awarded on 15th May 2023 and runs to 14th May 2025 with a possible extension to 14th May 2027.
