Thistle Sports is a long established local company, originally founded
as 'Racquets' in 1983 purely as a racquet specialist, one name change
and two locations later, in 1993 Thistle Sports arrived at Rose Street.
Customer demand led us to add Cricket, Hockey, Swimwear and Rugby to
compliment our Squash, Tennis and Badminton ranges.
We are a genuine equipment based sports shop not just tracksuits and
trainers. Our customers regularly tell us how much they enjoy coming
into a "Real sports shop". Their words not ours. Our staff are all
involved on the playing side of one or more of the sportswear we cater
for. Their expertise is your guarantee of a high level of advice and
We are here to help you make the right choice of sports equipment. It
is our aim that our customers leave with the correct equipment suited
to their level of ability. We would rather our customers did not buy
than buy the wrong item.
