CHARL DU PLESSIS (FOUNDER)
Ultimate Sport was founded by Charl du Plessis in the year 2000.

Charl was a professional rugby player who represented SA Schools in 1978, the Golden Lions in the Currie Cup as well as the South African Gazelles. He was known for his great footwork and pace.

Charl has a passion for sport and for development and thus decided to start a business that does just that. It was this passion which inspired him to focus his business on developing the youth by focusing on physical development, functional strength, fitness, speed, agility as well as overall stamina, and through this process create an active generation.

Charl involved his sons in the business from the start. First JP du Plessis (8 years old when he started) and was soon followed by his younger son, Muller du Plessis (5 years old when he started). They designed and tested all the equipment and extensively exercised with them. His sons joined him as they regularly travelled around the country offering specific training programs at schools, clubs and unions with their specific products.

JP DU PLESSIS (OLDEST SON, CURRENTLY MANAGING DIRECTOR)

JP represented SA Schools in 2009 and played for the Stormers, Cheetahs and the Kings locally, as well as a number of rugby clubs abroad. JP and his family currently reside in the USA and plays in the Major League Rugby competition for San Diego Legion. Last year JP was awarded back line player of the year.
