Original Barrington Sports Logos Above: Previous logos highlighting our longstanding hockey heritage. Barrington Sports has since extended its specialist focus to other sports including cricket, rugby, netball and running.

Barrington Sports was established in 1982 by keen sportsman Barry Dolby in Goostrey, Cheshire. From the beginning our focus has been on being a true sports specialist, focusing on sports we know well.

By 1984, Barrington Sports had moved to a larger outlet in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.

In 1986 we moved to Knutsford, Cheshire, where we are still located today, albeit in much larger premises in order to accommodate our various offices, expanding warehouse and successful retail outlet.

Our specialist knowledge, founded upon our in-house IT and expert customer service teams, has gained us a reputation for excellent customer service, delivering quality brands at competitive prices. Crucially, our staff is littered with keen hockey, cricket, rugby, netball players and runners; enabling us to excel at providing top class advice in those sports we specialise in at Barrington Sports.

In 2012 we moved to a brand new 25000 square foot consolidated site. Our new headquarters incorporates state of the art retail and warehouse spaces with interactive playing areas for customers and an even broader range of products. Come and visit us if you are in the area.



At Barrington Sports we are always looking to develop our expertise further in all our sports. We are continually exploring new innovations and new sports brands to ensure that we are always able to offer our customers the forefront of sporting equipment.

Looking to the future we are fully committed to focusing only on those sports that we can sustain through our in-house expertise. Our energy will be devoted to developing the existing Barrington Sports offering to our loyal customer base, and to extend that offering to those players and supports who have yet to hear about us.
