Business overview

One of the largest specialist racket retailers in the UK. Offering unmatched service, expert advice and ongoing support. A professional stringing service with grand slam experience

Established in 1940, Withers Sports is a specialist sports store with a focus on racket sports. We're proud to stock one of the largest ranges of rackets in the UK, with offerings from the biggest brands in the world such as Babolat, Head, Wilson and Yonex. We're also one of very few shops in the UK to offer an in-store hitting wall, giving you the opportunity to try rackets in-store. Not to mention our demo racket service, allowing you to take rackets away to try them out on court at your own club.

As well as rackets we stock comprehensive ranges of footwear and the other equipment you need to keep you on court.

We also offer a professional stringing service, with experience stringing at grand slam level you're safe in the knowledge that your rackets are in good hands. We can advise you on all aspects of stringing and racket customisation. Working on state of the art machines our usual turnaround time is 48 hours but we can at times offer a while-you-wait service.

In-store you'll also find running footwear from Asics and On, a range of keep fit equipment for those home workouts and a selection of hockey, rugby and hockey equipment.

Excellent service from a great local business

I ordered a racket with custom stringing online and it was hand delivered by one of the Withers team in person within 2 days - great customer service. I love the racket and wouldn't hesitate to buy from Withers again.

Great service, no pun intended...well ok it was.

Excellent service. I used this sports shop when my kids were small for their badminton equipment and now I've used them for my grandchildren. I bought a racket bag as Christmas present for my granddaughter and she loves it. Next day delivery did just that and saved me the hassle of driving into the city and paying to park so probably worked out cheaper than collecting.
