So Who's Tempest & What is Tempestshop.com
Well hopefully you will have heard of us, but just in case you haven't......... Tempest Sports has been around for quite some time, since 1998 in fact! We were one of the pioneers of the 'made to order' sportswear market working with and becoming the official suppliers over the years to a huge variety of customers from Universities (Loughborough, Oxford, Brighton, Bournemouth, Southampton), to Sports governing bodies (British Fencing, England Hockey, England Netball) to Football Clubs (AFC Wimbledon, FC United of Manchester, Peterborough FC) to a huge range of teams both large and small from around the UK and Europe.
Over the years we have changed a lot and while our commitment to providing market leading Sportswear and Equipment remains the same, we now focus on supplying clubs and individuals with the kit the want (stock or 'made to order') in a timeframe they like.
Tempestshop.com is our ecommerce website, rather than run multiple separate website for all our sports and activities we have focussed on developing one site which meets all our customer requirements.
So why Tempest?
Its a competitive market out there, and you the customer have a lot of choices with brands appearing (and disappearing) on a regular basis, so why Tempest? Well over the years we like to think we have learned a few things about the sportswear market, we're not going to make you false promises about delivery times, or quality, or garment performance, instead we prefer to be give you a full range of options (and advice) so that you get the best possible choice of sportswear. We know that each individual and club has different requirements and priorities, some need a kit in their colours literally in a matter of days, others want a fully bespoke option and are happy to have one made order, while many want to offer their members an 'on demand' service which actually works. Whatever your club needs we will have a solution for you and if you are not sure what you need just talk to one of our team and we will do our best to help.
What Services do you offer?
We do our best to make sure that we can offer as broad a range of options as possible and these are:
Stock: Almost all the items of sportswear or equipment you see on our website are available in stock and can be dispatched to you in 2-5 working days*. We have increased our stock range to cover the vast majority of colourways and items that we have found our customers have asked for. Of course if there is an item you are after that we don't have in stock just ask one of our team and we will see what we can do.
*this can take longer depending on the level of personalisation required
Made To Order: If your club is looking for a truly bespoke option then we offer a huge range of possible designs and garments. We work with suppliers in the UK, Turkey & Pakistan to manufacture garments to order, and depending on the garments required minimum orders can be as low as 10 garments with a lead time of as little as 4 weeks. New for 2017 we now offer a full range of sublimated playing and training wear alongside our more traditional 'cut and sew' ranges. More details on these options can be found in the 'made to order' section of the website.
Bulk Orders: If you are looking to order a large number of garments for a specific event e.g. a charity day and you need to keep within a certain budget then just get in contact with one of our team, we offer a full range of printed and embroidered kit options which can be made to order or sourced locally depending on your timeframe and budget
Club Portals: Whatever kit you want as one of the pioneers of the club portal system we know just how valuable a tool the club portals can be to clubs. We offer a full, easy to set up and free club portal system, so long as stock garments are selected there is no commitment on the club to actually buy or underwrite any of the kit offered and members will benefit for a range of Tempest Special offers over the course of the year.
