[#WOW] Meet Katie from Little Big Sports

Today we meet Katie from Little Big Sports. A hands-on mum to her two children and has been running Little Big Sports for 4 Years. Today she is in our #WOW Spotlight so I will pass you over to Katie to tell you more.
Can you tell us a little about yourself as a person?
I am a hard working, determined, married mum of two wonderful children. Privileged to be able to combine running an exciting, growing business with being a hands-on Mum. 

How did you first set up the business?
My then, four-year-old son is the inspiration behind  I set it up after seeing him struggle to play with an oversized and too heavy cricket bat. I created the website to help other parents find specially designed, age appropriate sports equipment for their children. True to the original insight, the equipment and clothing Little Big Sports sells has been carefully selected and is designed to suit different ages, sizes and abilities. It allows children to have maximum enjoyment and develop the skills of the game without wielding a cricket bat they can't lift, kicking a football that is too heavy or trying to reach a tennis ball that bounces over their heads. With the ultimate goal of helping make sport a normal and fun part of everyday life.

How old is the business?
Just over four years old. 

Did you ever think you’d be running your own business?
I wanted to but until Little Big Sports I hadn't stumbled across an idea that had potential and that I was passionate about.

Where are you based? Do you have a shop or are you just online? Based in beautiful Kent. Little Big Sports is just online at

What is the most popular product sales wise?
The biggest seller is the Zoggs Fabric swimming cap. Much better alternative to the silicone alternative that was only available when I was a child! 

Everyone has a favourite product - what is yours?
I love the Zsig garden tennis set we sell. They are at a great price, are portable (we often take ours to the park with friends) and are genuine fun for all the family, even Grandma! 

What is your newest item / product?
Delighted to now be selling the complete range of Paceman cricket bowling machines. They are an amazing product and are the only affordable bowling machine for juniors on the market. We really recommend them for any cricket loving child or Dad!! 

What is the one thing people must know about your business? 
Little Big Sports is the UK's best website for sports equipment and clothing that is age appropriate for children.

What is your proudest business achievement? 
The amazing customer feedback I regularly receive about my products and customer service.

What do you do when you aren’t working on the business?
Spending time with my family and friends. Watching my children play sport and running!

What five words describe your business?Motivating active children. Award winning.

Any big plans for 2015 you can share?
Coming soon is an amazing range of Outdoor wooden play equipment

I personally cannot wait to see what outdoor equipment they are going to bring out - do you struggle finding age appropriate items for your little one?
