Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Pershore Bowls Centre. In 1992 our clients, a successful husband and wife team, became the custodians of one of the country's leading sporting resources when they took over the centre, which was an offshoot of the Grays of Cambridge empire and manufacturer of the famous Concorde Bowl.

The business supplies the needs of the bowling fraternity throughout the country with an enviable reputation for quality and value for money within this specialist field. The business reports a healthy turnover of circa £107,000 per annum with a gross profit in the region of 66%. The business are the official bowls testers to the World Bowls Board. Pershore Bowls Centre offers a host of services including a full range of clothing and bowls, a renovation and polishing service and rarely also provide a testing and stamp service on site. The business benefits from very little competition in this unique sector.

The business has an informative website in situ which a new owner may wish to explore the possibility of developing an e-commerce section. The current owner would be happy to train a new owner how to renovate and restore bowls making this an ideal business opportunity for someone with basic DIY skills looking for a lucrative new career.
