The sports industry for many is a safe choice as there will be always be a need so instead of just reading the Sports News it is time to start your next business idea. Here is five great business ideas for the sports industry.

Sports clothing

The clothing industry can often be competitive but the rewards are often large. If you have a taste for fashion then starting your own sports clothing line could work great. Premium sports clothing in sports such as Golf and Tennis could work well and be a strong niche to start-up in. I would recommend starting off online with a small website for your products and get on social networks to help promote your products and raise brand awareness.

Sports camps

Each year there are there are thousands of people in england from children to adults looking to join a sports camp and get fit and therefore could be a very profitable business if you can find enough customers. You could run sports camps in a range of different sports from general fitness to competitive sports such as football. One thing that you will have to consider is the seasonal demand for camps as they become more popular in the new year and summer but can tend to die off in times such as autumn.

Sports equipment rentals

Rental businesses often have a high initial cost but can bring in big returns and even be operated from home. There can be a lot of sports where people do not have the money to buy their own equipment or just do not want to play as often. For example sports such as ice skating can create a great opportunity for you to start renting out equipment.

One thing to consider when starting a sport rental business is the same as a lot of sports businesses and that is seasonal demand. Seasonal demand can often put a lot of strain on sports business and rentals are no exception. Sports such as boat rental can often be very popular in the summer but in the winter no-one is going to be interested.

Sports instruction

This is where sports instruction comes in and if you are talented in a particular area of sports then you could offer your training to others. Sports instruction has little start-up cost as your main cost will be in advertising and can be an enjoyable job if you enjoy playing sports so if this is something that interests you then you can easily turn your hobbies into a profitable business.
