TLB Business Advisory Services is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Bronze Sponsorship agreement with Heartbeat Sports.

Heartbeat Sports was established in 2013 by Dubai based New Zealand rugby identity and athlete Shane Thornton.  Shane enjoyed a very successful rugby and athletic career and was most recently the head coach of the Dubai Dragons Rugby Club where he over saw great success between 2009 and 2013 in addition to being a coach with National rugby teams in the Gulf.

Heartbeat Sports Tigers Rugby Club is for children between the ages of 4 and 15 years old at Jebel Ali Primary School.  In addition it offers School Holiday camps that have an emphasis on sports and fun for children, other children’s activities and Touch Rugby Tournaments for adults.

Grant Bateman, General Manager of TLB Business Advisory Services said “We are extremely happy to be able to be part of sport and Junior Rugby development in the UAE.  Shane and the team at Heartbeat Sports have a great product in terms of developing children through sports activities and it is a fantastic way to promote a healthy lifestyle through sport.  I have a natural affinity to rugby in the UAE where I have played and still referee the game and see this as a way in which I can also give back to the sport which has provided me with many years of enjoyment.”

“As a new business, we are also supporting Shane behind the scenes with our Business Start Up Advisory Services and look forward to growing with Heartbeat Sports in a long and successful relationship.”
