Sports Ball Shop began trading in 2008 when founder Stuart Cardy, a self confessed sports fanatic, began selling rugby balls to his local rugby team.
Soon after this, Stuart began a lengthy research project on the sports ball market, with the intention of determining whether there was an opportunity for a new business venture. Around 18 months later, plans were made to launch a new sports ball shop that would sell to UK based sports teams and schools, but also directly to the public - this marked the beginning of Sports Ball Shop!
Today, Sports Ball Shop is a leading supplier of sports balls, offering customers an unrivalled range to choose from.
Through a culmination of immense dedication and extensive research & development, Stuart Cardy was able to successfully manipulate a gap within the sporting goods market and create one of the UK's leading sports ball retailers - Sports Ball Shop.
Sports ball shop's primary goal is to deliver the highest quality of sports balls on offer at the best possible prices. From your average sports enthusiast to the UK's leading sporting organisations sports ball shop has been supplying the best sports balls currently on the market
Stuart's perseverance and business insight allowed him to successfully integrate his passion for sports and working experience to create what we consider here at Sports Ball Shop to be "Something Special".
