Connected Clubs London Sports Hub

Obesity and inactivity are two of the biggest challenges facing our generation; it is clear that people just don't get enough exercise and we want to change that. Research data shows that callorie intake per person has actually fallen in the last few years so activity levels are the issue. Of course the whole picture is very complex but we believe that we have the fresh and innovative thinking to make changes.

Connected Clubs was founded in 2013 by Hugo Allen & Matt Holden with the aim of delivering quality services and equipment to coaches and clubs. Primarily we are focussed on racket sports currently but this will expand over time. We have developed a solid base but are now looking for some funding to take it to the next level.

The traditional sports shop and club have been under pressure in the UK for a number of years. We want to bring a proper sports shop back to central London and combine this with a sports hub. We have identified a suitable building right in the heart of London with over 30,000 sq feet of space. We now need initial funding to undertake legal and scoping works as we go through the process of raising finance.

The Sports Hub would include: the largest sports retail space in London with the opportunity to try equipment, class and exercise area, healthy restaurant, sports bar and sports business incubator.

We hope you can see why this project is so attractive and look forward to you joining us!
