Australian Rugby is pleased to announce a new partnership with BLACKROLL Australia who will become the Qantas Wallabies’ official supplier of athletic training, physio and recovery tools.
BLACKROLL, a company which originated from Germany, is renowned for their high-quality myofascial release and fascia training tools and methods. BLACKROLL products are already utilised by the German, Italian and French national football teams, most German Bundesliga Clubs, and international athletes Angelique Kerber (Tennis), Dirk Nowitzki (NBA) and Lindsey Vonn (Skiing), as well as a variety of other Australian sports teams.
This Wallabies’ partnership marks their biggest yet in the Australian market.
The two-year agreement will see the Wallabies using BLACKROLL training and recovery products as they prepare their upcoming Test matches around the world.
Australian Rugby’s other national teams – the Qantas Australian Women’s and Men’s Sevens teams, the Buildcorp Wallaroos and the BMW Australian U20s – will also benefit from BLACKROLL’s extensive product line, which will be used across the entire High-Performance program.
Head of Team Wallaby Physical Performance, Haydn Masters said: “It’s fantastic to partner with an industry leader in such a crucial component of our program.
“BLACKROLL’s excellent products will allow our players to function at their highest level and their expert technical education will allow us to maximise player output on the field while maintaining their health as an athlete.
“It’s also exciting considering BLACKROLL delivers quality partnerships with other professional teams that have similar training, travel and competition demands to those encountered by Australian Rugby Union teams.”
BLACKROLL Australia provides certified education which is aimed at health and fitness professionals, teaching to apply the training concepts and products in a very broad spectrum of user groups.
Director BLACKROLL Australia, Christoph Heppeler added: “The opportunity to work with the elite teams is giving great insights to how effective and far reaching the fascia training has become over recent years. BLACKROLL is a very accessible training concept and we encourage everybody to engage with our brand for long-term benefits in health, fitness and performance.”
