  3. A Fond Farewell To Mailsports

A Fond Farewell To Mailsports

The swimming community mourns the closing of Mailsports, a pillar in swimming gear and expertise for over four decades. Here at Simply Swim, we were deeply saddened to hear this news. Mailsports' dedication to all things swimming, from passionate enthusiasts to Olympic hopefuls, has been an inspiration.

Founded in the late 1970s, Mailsports' journey began in Englefield Green, Surrey.  They later established a thriving presence in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire. Their commitment wasn't just about selling products; it was about fostering a community built on shared love for the water.

A Legacy of Knowledge and Service

Mailsports' strength was its deep understanding of aquatic sports. Their team wasn't merely staff; they were passionate individuals whose expertise flowed freely to customers. This knowledge fuelled their ability to source the very best swimwear and accessories from leading brands around the globe. Speedo, Arena, Maru, TYR, Funkita – these are just some of the names that graced their shelves, all presented with the guidance of a knowledgeable team.

But Mailsports wasn't just about product selection and competitive prices. They were renowned for their exceptional customer service. Their ethos of going the extra mile for each customer truly embodied the spirit of the swimming community – supportive, encouraging, and always ready to help a fellow swimmer find the perfect gear.

Beyond Retail: A Community Hub

Mailsports understood that swimming wasn't just a physical activity; it was a passion.  They embraced all aspects of the aquatic world, from the casual leisure swimmer to the dedicated club competitor, the open-water adventurer to the aspiring Olympian. Their connection with coaches, teachers, organisations, and swimmers of all levels allowed them to tailor their offerings and cater to the ever-evolving needs of their swim family.

Carrying the Torch Forward

While Mailsports may be closing its doors, their spirit lives on. Here at Simply Swim, we are committed to upholding their legacy of exceptional service, comprehensive knowledge, and unwavering dedication to the swimming community.

We understand the disappointment this news brings, and we want to assure Mailsports' loyal customers that Simply Swim is here to support all your swimming needs. We offer a vast selection of top brands, expert advice, and a commitment to finding the perfect gear for your swimming journey –  be it leisurely laps, competitive training, or open water adventures.

We encourage you to explore our website and discover the world of swimming products we offer. We are confident you'll find everything you need to continue your swimming endeavours.

Thank you, Mailsports, for your incredible contribution to the swimming community. Your passion and dedication have inspired generations of swimmers. We, at Simply Swim, are honoured to carry the torch forward.
