Recent Sports Xtra Franchise Launches...

Chantal Bourdais & Matt Cross
Territory: Croydon & Sutton
Launch Date: September 2009

What first attracted you to Sports Xtra?
"My partner has been seeing first hand the pressures that headteachers and schools are under to deliver the core curriculum, let alone a whole new sports and PE initiative. When we saw the Sports Xtra opportunity it appealed on a number of levels and, following a very professional franchise owner meeting, the sheer breadth and depth of the service offering more than answered all of our questions."

What are the key benefits to you as a franchise owner?
"Work/life balance and making a difference are ideals many of us aspire to but rarely achieve - and here is a profitable business that enables us to do just that.

Ric Bulzis

What first attracted you to Sports Xtra?
"I was attracted by Sports Xtra's core purpose of really making a difference in increasing the number of children who lead more active lifestyles. It's a professional no-pressure opportunity to make a difference as well as positive financial gains. The company has an honest approach and franchise owners must be prepared for hard work!"

What are the key benefits to you as a franchise owner?
"Seeing 70 children on our Adventure Xperience and watching them climb our 25ft climbing wall was very satisfying. They experienced a roller coaster of emotions from fear to jubilation as they arrived at the top."
