New balls please?


Next week sees the start of Wimbledon here in the UK. As one of tennis’ most prestigious events, Wimbledon always generates a great deal of excitement – not only for avid tennis fans but also for sports fans generally. And it’s not just Wimbledon that sports fans have got to look forward to over the coming weeks... There are a number of other key events in the sporting calendar taking place right here in the UK and Ireland over the summer, including the British Open later in July, the IAAF World Athletics Championships from 4th – 13th August and the women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland from 9th – 26th August.

From the active types to the sofa spectators, here are some all-important sports-related purchases!

Get involved

If watching sport inspires you to get active, you’ll be keen to buy yourself some new sports gear. As far as sports apparel is concerned, there’s so much choice that you can quickly get carried away! From performance enhancing clothing to chic activewear, visit online retailer Premier Sport.

If it’s some new sporting equipment or accessories you’re after, take a look at Decathlon and Sports Direct for a brilliant choice at reasonable prices.

Picture the action

If your summer involves you watching live sport, be that a major sporting event or a football match in the park, you may want to get a better picture! Get top quality live action stills with a new DSLR camera or video the action with a Go Pro – either of which can be purchased with a 2 year guarantee from John Lewis.

You can also experience all the action close up with a new pair of binoculars – a great range of which can be found at Currys.

Spectator sport

If you’re more of a spectator than a participator, you’ll need to stock up on a few essentials to ensure you can enjoy the day in comfort. For summer accessories including hats and suncream, head over to Marks and Spencers and to look after your eyes whilst carrying off the ‘stylish chic’ look all in one go, get yourself a new pair of designer sunglasses from Sunglasses Shop.  

If you prefer watching sport in the comfort of your own home, upgrading your home entertainment system will ensure you don’t miss a second of the action! For smart TVs and 4K TVs, visit for a brilliant selection to suit all budgets. If upgrading your sound system is higher up on the agenda, take a look at Richer Sounds where you can pick up speaker packages from leading manufacturers including Cambridge Audio, Pioneer, Denon and Acoustic Energy.

However you choose to get involved with this year’s summer of sport, you can purchase any of the above detailed items from UK retailers and get them posted to your home address - wherever that may be in the world. forward2me provide thousands of customers worldwide with a trustworthy, reliable parcel forwarding service – find out more here
