We manufacture and supply a vast array of sports equipment, much of which has been designed for heavy use. Our range includes Football, Hockey, Rugby, Cricket, Netball, Badminton and much more…

Something that hasn’t changed is our commitment to quality products and outstanding customer service:
The head office is located in a purpose built unit near Beccles in Suffolk. All Administration work is carried out here. The unit has space to stock and distribute a large range of products. We are busy with a new integrated stock management system so we will be better prepared for our busy periods, this will contribute to us keeping within our lead times.

We have continued our investment in UK manufacturing and are now producing nets at our premises in Beccles, Suffolk. This means that we are able to provide our customers with a whole range of bespoke netting options.

All of our manufacturing in the UK is carried out to the highest standard at our factory in Stafford. Being based in the Midlands means we are ideally situated for ease of access to all major routes enabling efficient distribution throughout the UK. The factory manufacture and stock a large range of our fast moving lines helping us to achieve a fast turnaround on orders.
Production Director Sean Wallett oversees production and distribution at the Stafford Factory.

We operate our own fleet of vehicles which allows us to deliver the longer length products ourselves, ensuring quality from start to finish. We have recently increased the number of vehicles in our fleet improving delivery times throughout the UK. Our delivery drivers carry mobile phones and are able to contact customers to arrange a timed delivery.

Safety is our highest priority so all equipment (where applicable) conforms to the latest British and European Standards, for example all football goals have been independently tested to conform to BSEN 748 or BS8462:2012. Copies of test certificates are now available on request.
Our commitment to safety doesn’t stop once your product has been delivered which is why we now offer servicing and maintenance contracts ensuring your equipment remains safe and in the process prolonging the life of your products
