Our Specialist Team


My Wife Jo and I opened Nick Rivett Sport 12 years ago. My childhood dream was to own a sports shop. My career has always followed this dream, from a retail accountant to becoming a retailer. Our mission is to find the right product for the right person. Its simple and means we really get to know our customers and their sports. Over the years I've raced many a marathon and dabbled with Half Iron man (another may be on the horizon.....) and of course I LOVE to play tennis!


As a former retail buyer with 25 years of retail experience, I am all things Nick Rivett Sport from overseeing the day to day running, buying with Nick to creating and growing our brand and online store. I love evolving our brand and feel very grateful that we work in such a vibrant, positive and inspirational environment. I love to LEARN and have a great passion for all things wellness, tennis and my gorgeous family! You will mostly find me outdoors - I am a great lover of the countryside.


I have always had a love of tennis and sports in general. As a previous LTA level 3 coach for 16 years, I’ve really enjoyed teaching, supporting and developing others to achieve their goals on and off court. Bringing these skills and experiences into Nick Rivett Sport as store manager, I aim to help and find the products the customer wants, in a welcoming and relaxed environment. Working within this great team excites me for present and future projects that we can share and develop with our customers. Away from the shop floor, I’m a keen runner with half marathons and an ultra coming up! You will find me trolling through mens lifestyle fashion brands and probably see me wearing the odd bit of dodgy clothing! I’m also football mad and sadly for my sins a Tottenham supporter.

I am a Level 1 LTA coach working at many of our fantastic local tennis clubs!! I am also an established football coach and love being a key part of the Nick Rivett Sport specialist stringing team.


Tennis is a sport that I am truly passionate about, as the sport teaches you a lot about yourself. I am an architecture student at The University of Brighton and play for The Brighton Panthers University tennis team. I love working at Nick Rivett Sport as it keeps me connected to the sport and I love helping people on their tennis journey.


I am a keen tennis player and a casual basketball player. I am a member of Preston lawn tennis club and have been playing tennis for 6 years. I’m part of the specialist stringing team I love being a part of the Nick Rivett Sport team.


I’ve been playing tennis for 12 years now and used to play at a county level during my junior years. I am currently a first division parks league player and I love the challenge of being part of the specialist stringing team at Nick Rivett Sport.
