A few words from some of our clients
We thoroughly enjoyed working with the Aquabatix team at our Nivea ‘Dare to Dip’ event. The Aquabatique performances were amazing and really added to the overall atmosphere of the event. Not only are they talented performers but lovely to work with as well. Our event was female focussed, and Aquabatique added a touch of glamour and real WOW factor, we hope to work with them again in the future. You can also watch the full routine on our video channel
Emma Jacobs, Account Manager, Jack Morton Worldwide
What an amazing performance. The Aquabatix team was fantastic, both full of energy and grace. Well done to everyone. Your team was a delight to work with.
Veronique Bellet, Head of B2B Marketing, McArthur Glen
The girls were absolutely fantastic and very well received. The client and party guests loved them and all eyes were focused on them during their performances. The group themselves, and Adele, were amazing to work with, very friendly and accommodating which is always refreshing when booking entertainment artists.

'Katie at Aquabatix was extremely helpful and efficient. On a tight deadline and budget with very precise requirements she nonetheless managed to deliver in providing a well trained and highly professional swimming double, Lauren. Lauren worked tirelessly and cheerfully and got me the shots I needed. I would recommend Aquabatix to any filmmaker.'
Nick Cohen, TV Producer and Filmmaker
We were absolutely thrilled with the performance – both you and the girls were fabulous and so easy to work with. The girls were very talented and exceptionally entertaining and it definitely added an extra special touch to the evening. I know the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves too.
Arabella Dupont, Retail Editor - Brides Magazine - Conde Nast Publications
All at WWF would like to thank Aquabatix for your fabulous performance at our Blue Mile event in London. You really added an extra element to the day and the crowds certainly enjoyed your spectacular displays. You were all a pleasure to work with and we hope you will be available to perform again next year!
Ian Lulham, Blue Mile Project Manager - WWF-UK
Working with Katie and Aquabatix was a pleasure from the start. Efficient and effortless, I was impressed by Katie's professionalism and innovative suggestions when she came to meet the client. It was an absolute joy to have them in Ibiza - the guests loved the performance. The girls were great and kept very calm and cool when we had to delay the second performance which meant that they very nearly missed their flight home! I will definitely be using them again for another performance in Ibiza...
Serena Cook, Director and Founder - Deliciously Sorted Ibiza
I wanted to drop you a line to thank you personally for your input and your teams creativity and flexibility in helping create such a fantastic visual focus to the reception at this years Ark Ball. From our first meeting I knew you were in tune with our vision, and you subsequently delivered a polished and sophisticated product that was everything we had discussed. Most importantly you delivered on the day without any signs of the stresses and strains that these events can throw up and most importantly your entire team seemed to have a professional smile on their faces at all times, both in and out of the pool! I am sure we will work together on new projects soon, but in the meantime please pass my sincere thanks for a great show on to the entire troupe.
Jon Kellet, Director - Starlight Design
"I seldom get career envy but Aquabatix really made me envious and got my party going."
Where do I begin? Aquabatix is one of a kind. Their commitment to the art of their performance is clearly evident. (Even if the water may not be perfectly clear to swim in). No matter what the circumstances they remained professional and delivered some moments on the circus stage that left the audience speechless. Their ability to work under extreme circumstances and also be able to take direction and understand the over all style of a production blew me away. We never would have been able to reach the vision with out that level of integrity. I can’t wait to collaborate with them again in the future and hope their continued success propels them forward.
Kelly Corcoran Smith, Creative Director and Choreographer - K.C.Hawkland LTD, Denver Colorado, USA
We at A League of Their Own are very happy with the professionalism and hard work of the Aquabatix team. They were a pleasure to work with, and their appearance on the show was a great success. Their dedication to the performance was exceptional, and we wouldn't hesitate to work with them in future.
David Marsh, Associate Producer - CPL Productions
We were delighted to have the GB Synchro Team powered by British Gas perform at our recent event - it was truly amazing and enjoyed by everyone. With Adele, the High Performance Manager for the team, describing the techniques followed by an incredible team performance - it was an unforgettable experience. And importantly, from a business angle, it helped support our key messages focusing on strength, performance and stamina. The team were exceptional and Adele's speech inspiring. Thank you.
Rachel Kemp, Channel Marketing Manager - Cable & Wireless Worldwide
It was pleasure to work with Aquabatix, in Turkey, Istanbul. Everybody loved the show and the athletes were great, they have very positive attitudes as well as fabulous competence. It was not just a one time performance, it was the first step of a friendship and partnership for the future. We are anxiously waiting to host Aquabatix again for a much bigger performance together in Istanbul. Thank you for everything!
Dilay Yurga, Media Relations Specialist - Iyi Iletisim
Aquabatix were professional and friendly in helping us with our film shoot. An odd request it was - synchronised swimming without the water - but Katie Fried sorted us out with a swimmer in a very short space of time. Helen arrived promptly, was lovely and proved very innovative with her movements. She was enthusiastic, great at improvisation and our clients loved her! I highly recommend Aquabatix and will be using them again if we have need in the future.
Abby Blackmore, Production Manager - Scorch London Production company
I just wanted to say a big thank you for last night's performance. Everyone loved it! Please say thank you to the girls as well, they were great.
Frederique - Wingfield PR
The evening was a success and the Aquabatix team were very well received. The routine was polished and looked fantastic, it was a pleasure to work with such a friendly and professional team. It was great to work with Aquabatix and I hope we can work together again in 2011
Lisa Moore, Project Manager - Urban Caprice
"The Aquabatix team is a group of extremely talented and professional athletes, all of whom made our day filming a long and complicated underwater sequence a genuine pleasure from start to finish. From initial concept through to completion the athletes were enthusiastic and accommodating in equal measure, generously collaborating on the project at every opportunity. The swimmers worked tirelessly on the day to a demanding schedule, and managed to keep smiling and enjoying themselves throughout - a testament to their stamina and dedication. I can only thank everyone for their fantastic effort and would hope to work with the team again in the not too distant future.".
Charlie Anderson, Producer/Director - Pulse Films
"We just want to say a very big thank you to you and your swimmers, you were all terrific and ensured that the party started the way we wished - only better!! Very professional service and very nice people - excellent! All our guests and we were very impressed. May Aquabatix go from strength to strength, please pass our grateful thanks to all the athletes for making it such a memorable party.".
Steven and Jenny Rose
"Aquabatix were a pleasure to work with and did exactly as we had planned, we hope to be using them again soon.”
Johnathan Reynolds, Director - Flaming Fun
"I give Aquabatix the highest praise possible for their continuous positive attitudes and amazing abilities to perform under strenuous circumstances in the local overseas venue in Korea. Over a period of daily performances for one month, time and time again they insisted on delivering quality performances rather than commanding their own personal comforts. I highly recommend working with their top notch management and any of their performers to add value to your future events.".
Karin Roest, owner of KR Productions
"Aquabatix were a pleasure to work with from day one. I was so impressed by their professionalism; its rare to find people with such talent who are so low maintenance! It made planning our event a joy and the guests were transfixed by their beautiful, whimsical and visually captivating routines. I would recommend them for any event you want your guests to remember for years to come!".
Thea Darricotte, Executive Retail Editor - Condé Nast Brides
"Aquabatix made our challenging event a lot easier due to their professionalism from the word go. This annual event required an unusual format and complicated travel arrangements all of which the team took in their stride and which made our job a lot easier. On the day, they worked extremely hard during their rehearsals in the pool that made me tired just watching before they even started their performance for the client. The costumes and make up looked fabulous, their performances were perfect for our client and everyone was mesmerized by their skills. Thank you so much!".
Fiona Goldthorpe, Event Organiser - Entertainers Agency
"Aquabatix were highly professional and flexible in their approach with the Speedo advertising shoot. Their models were outstanding underwater, and were able to work for many hours non stop to achieve the desired images. In this current economic climate, Aquabatix were flexible and worked with us on our budget constraints to enable us to produce the work on time and in budget. Thank you to all at Aquabatix and I would certainly choose to work with Aquabatix again and use their models in future advertising campaigns.".
Ali Maloney, Producer for Speedo advertising campaign
"On behalf of all the girlies, I want to thank Aquabatix again for an amazing experience on Saturday. All the girls’ love, love, loved every minute of the lesson as you could probably tell. Lots of fun, lots of laughs, lots of sculling and (of course) great synchronised swimming action took place. I think some of our training mentality kicked in at one point, wanting to add in our own moves and wanting it to be perfect! You were great fun, very professional and one of many highlights to an amazing weekend - definitely one for the 'bride to be' to remember. A BIG thank you from all of us."
Chavonne Cole, Private Hen Party
"Working with Aquabatix has been an absolutely pleasure. From helping us brainstorm our creative theme to coming up with some really eye catching dance routines that captured the public’s attention. The British team was fantastic at posing for our PR shots and despite the weather; the girl’s were smiling and a pleasure to be around! Here’s to the first of many joint activities!"
Kerry Milliken, Director - Eye
"I found the team at Aquabatix very helpful and professional both in advance and on-site, going beyond the call of duty to provide for the demanding requests of our client. The event in St Tropez was a magnificent occasion with artists flown in from all around the world and many spectacular shows. The performance from Aquabatix enhanced the event and was greatly appreciated by my client and the guests present on the night. The event was a huge success and I am very grateful to Aquabatix for their contribution."
Peter Mackley, Manager - Riviera Organisation Entertainment and event design
"From the moment that I picked up the phone to make an enquiry I felt like I was in very safe and professional hands. Dealing with the company was easy and as I had a very complex programme of events for a very special client I felt that I could relax. On the day of the performance the girls all worked so hard for quite a few hours and they looked amazing. However, nothing could quite compare to the actual performance which was brilliant, entertaining and in my eyes and those of my client perfection. I could have watched them for hours!"
Tracy Cohen, Account Director - Spectra Travel
"From the first discussion on the phone, to the various meetings and correspondence required to pull this performance together I found that I was dealing with a truly professional team. I was not only very happy with all of the pre-production elements involved in this process but thrilled every time we spoke as everything progressed beyond my expectations. Your use of all means of technology to maximise our communication and brisk responses, smooth and calm troubleshooting and willingness to economise and maximise our budget was very encouraging.
Suffice to say that the actual day was a tremendous success with President Gorbachev and Vanessa Redgrave making particular comment to me about the brave and beautiful performers from Aquabatix. The crowd were truly enthralled, enchanted and obviously amazed particularly due to the professionalism of the performers in the very cold weather. I was thrilled so many came into the garden to enjoy the performance in such cold conditions. A real tribute to the girls."
Matt Peat, Creative Director - Urban Caprice
"Working with Aquabatix athlete Blake Aldridge was a pleasure. We certainly got the shot we wanted and much much more! I'd happily recommend Aquabatix again. From a production point of view I really appreciate your speed and understanding when it came to negotiation costs prior to the shoot."
Michael De Vries, Senior Account Manager - Cogent Elliott
"We worked with Aquabatix for a press event in November and found their service both extremely professional and highly enthusiastic. The synchronised swimmers performances were outstanding and were the talking point amongst our guests. If you want the ‘wow’ factor at your event we would certainly recommend Aquabatix"
Ayse Suleyman, PR Manager - Office
"Aquabatix were a pure joy to work with. Not only were the swimmers elegant, fluid, pleasant and friendly, the choreographers were also excellent, and adapted to the project beautifully. As a director, working with a choreographer can sometimes be difficult, but working with the Aquabatix team was so smooth I wish I could direct with them all the time! The results are amazing- the footage far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend Aquabatix for filming, and would love to shoot with them again"
Catherine Taylor, Director – Monkey Palace Productions
"Working in pre-production with Aquabatix was effortless & their fast & efficient responses were fantastic for a shoot with such a quick turnaround. Katie's approach was extremely friendly & professional; a pleasure to deal with in what can be a stressful time.
Tia was extremely professional on the shoot day & took direction very well. She gave us 150% considering how long she was in the water for, her energy & efforts never dipped & the directors were very impressed with how well she performed.
Overall, I would work with Aquabatix again & they would be my first port of call for underwater performers. I would highly recommend them."
Kelly Palmer, Producer - Virgin Media TV
"I hired Aquabatix for my husband's 50th birthday surprise and I would highly recommend them. Their performance was awesome, polished and slick, with an extra special and different touch to the evening. Their costumes were dazzling and the music perfect. Their choreography worked so well for the event, showing elegance and grace throughout. I was touched by their act and so were my guests, many people were mesmerized by them. "
Lisa Anderson, The Sport Entertainment and Media Group
"I want to thank you for making our Listerine launch such a huge success. We were extremely pleased with your performance which was of an excellent standard and would not hesitate in recommending you to other clients. Your positive can do attitude make it a pleasure to work with you"
Mandy Janes, Director Experiential Marketing – Continental Drifts

Mitzi Saitzyk, Account Manager - Weber Shandwick | Healthcare
"The team at Aquabatix were a pleasure to deal with and always very responsive and flexible, taking our particular requirements into account every step of the way. The routine was everything we had hoped for – attention grabbing, unique, fun and innovative. I would not hesitate to recommend Aquabatix and I look forward to working with them again on future projects."
Sinéad Kavanagh, Marketing Manager - AffiliateFuture
"I wanted to write personally to thank you for your team's hard work and dedication in St Tropez last week. The hours of rehearsal were well worth while because the two shows were fantastic. My client hosts numerous parties and is always looking for something different and the midnight show was perfect. I will now endeavour to find more clients with swimming pools for you."
Marcus Rendle, Managing Director - Hype Party Planning
"I was eager to see Aquabatix perform the newly created duet sync tank act as this had never been performed before in Hong Kong or anywhere in the world. We were extremely pleased with the performances which generated a lot of press and local interest for the launch of our new shopping centre, Citywalk. The Aquabatix performers were beautiful, tremendously talented and charming at all times. I hope to maintain a good relationship with Aquabatix - I would love to work with them for future events."
Irene So, General Manager - Sino Estates Management Ltd
We were delighted with Aquabatix! They made our event extra-special and gave a brilliantly memorable performance that all of our guests loved. Professional and easy to deal with, they were a pleasure!
Anna Whitaker, PR Executive - Virgin Holidays Cruises
"Aquabatix have been a pleasure to work with - from initial meetings, to creating a unique choreographed routine to fit in with the tongue in cheek nature of the Red Bull Flugtag, to the teams final performance on the day itself, they tackled whatever I 'flew' at them! The feedback from the team here at Red Bull, as well as from some of the 80,000 strong audience who watched their performance on the day has been amazing and I would recommend them to add that extra touch to an event anytime. I still feel bad for putting the girls in that oh so chilly Serpentine water, but I think we all agree that it was worth it!"
Sue Gurner, Show Manager – Red Bull Company Ltd
"Thank you very much the girls were a perfect addition to the night which was a great success all round."
Demelza Short, Event Manager - Internos Real Investors
"I just wanted to say thank you to you and the girls for a fantastic performance on Saturday night. Our guests loved the show and the night was a huge success so we will certainly recommend Aquabatix to anyone who is looking for something different to entertain and impress their guests."
Patrick Hill, Managing Director - AVC Productions
"This particular annual event needed that little bit "extra" this year. We certainly gained more than a little extra by having the Aquabatix synchronised swimming team perform. Their excellent talent certainly brought silence to the party as they approached the pool and then performed their routines.
Our guests have commented on the novel idea and how much they enjoyed it. So much so that some have commented that how they can't wait to see what we are going to do at our next event. Aquabatix has raised the bar for us and we now have a lot to live up to. Lovely group of girls, very easy to work with both before, during and after the event I and wouldn't hesitate to use them again."
Jacqui Lovell, Events Manager - Wragge & Co LLP
"The Aquabatix swimmers performed two spectacular routines for Cellar Society at a high profile event in March 2008. The routines were choreographed to classics by Frank Sinatra and helped to set the perfect tone to ensure a very memorable evening for our guests. I look forward to working with Aquabatix on future events."
Natalie Tucker, Events Manager - Cellar Society
"I recently booked the GB Synchronised Swimming Team for the launch of Pretty Polly Love Legs. Without doubt the team added energy, glamour and entertainment to our celebrity party and were the talk of the evening. The Aquabatix management was faultless and I was extremely impressed by the vision and lengths they went to, to create a bespoke routine that had synergy with the Pretty Polly brand. My hope is that we can work together on other projects in the future."
Charlotte Moreso, Associate Director - Fuel PR
"The synchronised swimming team looked immaculate in metallic gold costumes and Esther Williams inspired flowered caps. Not to be outdone by true soul diva Jocelyn Brown, Aquabatix provided the launch of 'Diva TV' with a sparkling performance. Some members of the audience were viewing synchronised swimming for the first time and judging from their reactions, it certainly left them wanting more."
Jane Muirhead, Diva TV - NBC Universal
"I used Aquabatix for the Kelley Brook / Camelot shoot in July 2007 and was impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail. Great crew"
Zac Macauley, Professional Underwater Photographer
"The Aquabatix synchronised swimmers really added the wow factor to our party at the London Aquarium. The athletes kept the guests enthralled as they performed gracefully alongside the stingrays and tropical fish. They put on a fantastic show and were very professional despite the cold temperature of the tank! I would not hesitate to use them at future events."
Natalie Tucker, Senior Event Manager - Fizz
"Aquabatix added that extra bit of excitement to The Big Dance Guinness World record attempt in Trafalgar Square, and they performed brilliantly. I don't think anyone was expecting to see choreographed synchronised swimming performed in the iconic fountains!"
Jacqueline Rose, Senior Cultural Strategy Officer - Mayors Office
"The Aquabatix synchronised swimming team were fantastic. They are very talented performers, extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. The coach choreographed a great routine which was perfect for our filming requirements and I would highly recommend Aquabatix to anyone within the entertainment industry".
Alex Kohler, Producer, Bustamove, MTV
“We came up with the idea of using synchronised swimming for the Drymbego music video because we wanted something new and unique. I was thrilled when I found the Aquabatix team as they were extremely professional, highly skilled and fun to work with. None of the girls had ever acted in a video before but they did an incredible job, under the pressure of the hours they worked! We are very, very pleased with the end result – They are all great”.
Bryan Moses, Production Manager, Boomerang TV
"The Aquabatix synchronised swimmers performed a fabulous routine to 'Purple Rain' by Prince at our client's 50th purple themed birthday party. The athletes were highly skilled and beautiful and added that extra little something to make the party one to remember."
Sarah Gorlov, Party Planner - Banana Split Plc
"The Aquabatix synchronised swimming team performed two fabulous routines at the launch of Disney's Little Mermaid DVD in London. They swam to the soundtrack of the film and captured the attention of the media as well as the young children who took part. The children loved the beautiful patterns the swimmers made in the water and were particularly enthralled by the mermaid tails. The synchronised swimmers were flexible and professional and the whole event was a great success."
Kathryn Knox, Senior Account Manager, Javelin Europe
"Underwater photography is very complex so it is imperative to have the right models to be able to achieve the image you are looking for. The Aquabatix synchronised swimmers are highly skilled, athletic and professional and were able to deliver every shot we were looking for."
James Shearman, Art Director, Spectre Inc
"The Aquabatix synchronised swimming team are extremely professional, flexible and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Aquabatix to anyone within the entertainment industry".
