Specialist contractor Doe Sport faces sale

A specialist contractor that helped deliver the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton is set to be put up for sale.

Doe Sport, based near Colchester in Essex, filed notice to appoint administrators ahead of its expected sale.

Directors at the firm asked business advisers FRP Advisory to assist with a sale of the business, which was founded in 1926.

It builds tennis courts and sports facilities and counts Tony and Jane Henman, parents of former British number one tennis player Tim, among its clients.

The notice to appoint administrators at FRP only affects Doe Sport’s Essex-headquartered business, which operates out of its base in Feering, and does not affect any other Doe Sport businesses in other parts of the country. 

Sarah Swanick, managing director of Essex-based Doe Sport, said: “It has been a delight to see Doe Sport serve up so many show courts across many of the country’s leading tournaments and to help all manner of sports enthusiasts with their performance in all weather conditions.

“I look forward to others being able to continue with the great service Doe Sport offers.”

A spokesman for FRP Advisory said: “We are assisting the directors of Doe Sport in Essex with plans for an accelerated merger and acquisition process of their operations based in Feering, with a view to seeking a buyer for the business and assets.

“Doe has an enviable contact list and proven track record stretching back generations in the area of specialist sports facilities construction across numerous disciplines.”
