The Federation of Sports and Play Associations (FSPA) is saddened by the news that long-serving Board member and BGIA Executive member Paul Jepson has passed away.
FSPA Chair Jack Osborne, says: “Not only was Paul a supportive member of the FSPA Board for six years, he was also a stalwart of the golfing industry and a vital member of the Executive team for the British Golf Industry Association (BGIA) for 8 years.
“As Director of leading brand Yonex, his knowledge – not only of the golfing industry, but of the sporting goods industry as a whole – was invaluable. He helped to shape the direction of the both the BGIA and the FSPA.
“On a personal and a professional level, Paul will be greatly missed; his dedication to sport, the BGIA, the Federation and to the entire industry was second-to-none. His attention to detail on the Board and the Executive was a result of his commitment to our members and his absence will be felt.
“We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to his family and friends at this very sad time.”
