Our Specialist Team


My Wife Jo and I opened Nick Rivett Sport 11 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 over 20 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 online store. I love evolving our brand and feel grateful that we work in such a vibrant, youthful and inspirational environment. I have a passion for all things wellness, love to hit a tennis ball with Nick and enjoy cycling and have recently returned to running after a sabbatical.


I am the store manager and nerd in the shop when it comes to our products with stringing, running shoes + badminton my focus. I am a passionate racket stringer, marathon runner and I play in the Brighton league for the Stanford Penguins Badminton Club. I love being outside either up on the South Downs or at the beach.
