About Macey Sports
We were establised in 1976 and are still truly a family business. One of our founders, Janet Macey, continues to run the business hand in hand with her son Nick. Between us we have over 50 years experience in the sports industry and consequently have seen many changes. We are thoroughly supported by Nick’s wife Rachel and long serving employee Olwen.
The business started from a small shop on the corner of Duckpool Road and Christchurch Road, and has been in its current location now for over the past 20 years. The larger premises which we now occupy has enabled us to develop our cricket and school wear business giving us the opportunity of having one of the largest selections of cricket in the UK(certainly the biggest in Wales). It also gave us the scope to develop our school wear business and currently provide uniform to 60% of Newport’s Comprehensives, five of Newport’s Primary schools and also to Newport’s private school Rougemont. Two years ago saw us expand the business further, taking on the adjoining premises. This enabled us to develop our specialist areas even further, also giving us extra space to enhance the shopping experience during our very busy back to school period.
The business started out as being a traditional sport shop and we have always retained that ethos. We are Newport’s only independent sports shop. We pride ourselves on offering good honest independent advice on all products and services. We are a REAL sports shop for REAL sports people. We have excellent links with our local community, supplying local authority and businesses.
Since the decline of the High Street, Macey Sports has gone from strength to strength as the personal service does seem to have gone from away from retailing, but here we are only too willing to offer fair, free advice on a vast array of sports. If we haven’t got something in stock we will always endeavor to get it for you.
We really are a true sport shop, other areas we cater for include dancewear, bowls, darts, athletics, rugby, football, racket sports and accessories. You name it we can probably get it. We offer racket restringing, football and rugby ball repairing, cue tip fitting, cricket bat grip fitting and also a comprehensive selection of trophies backed up by a full engraving service.
We also offer bespoke club and corporate designs printed or embroidered as necessary.
