Who we are

Richardson Sport is a specialist Health, Fitness and Wellbeing sports company that provides a wide range of bespoke services to elite and aspiring athletes, clubs, community groups and schools.

Our Mission is to enable athletes from Grassroots to Professional level to achieve their full potential through the provision of a holistic approach to their development both physically and emotionally. 

We specialise in ‘Athlete Development’ and in the provision of bespoke service, packages to meet the needs of individuals and groups, in areas of sports science and medicine be it Fitness, Strength and Conditioning, Nutrition, Performance Analysis, Psychology, Physiotherapy or Mentoring.

We work with professional and amateur athletes, offering a tailored holistic approach to enable them to reach their full potential on and off the field of play. The need for our services has never been greater and demands for our support, particularly in the world of professional football, is driven by the increased expectations placed on young players and academy hopefuls, very few of which will achieve their dream and that of their parents. We see our role as being there to support players, athletes and those who support them in picking up the pieces and setting them back on the right track.

We also have strong grassroots focus and increasingly deliver sports programmes across Greater Manchester schools and communities, as well as offering motivational support and guidance on fitness and activity, particularly to address growing physical, mental and emotional wellbeing needs.

Our continued development into one of the most Performance Sport specialists in the UK has been underpinned by strict adherence to our core values of Commitment, Honesty, Positivity, Passion and Personal Development.

HOW WE STARTED

Our story

Founded in 2010 by Wayne Richardson and Emma Hughes, Richardson Sport set out to be a leading independent football fitness, athletic coaching and mentoring provider.

Fast forward 10 years and we have grown to become a specialist Health, Fitness and Well-being sports company that provides a wide range of bespoke services to elite and aspiring athletes, clubs, community groups and schools. 

Based at the GB Taekwondo National Performance Centre in Manchester, we have assembled a highly skilled and experienced team of nutritionists, sports psychologists, fitness coaches, physiotherapists and sports mentors. It is our aim to deliver bespoke support packages that help athletes of all age and ability, professional and amateur, across a range of sports, reach their full potential.

Our team of experts will act as your own personal backroom staff, designing, reviewing and improving bespoke programmes specific to your individual needs.

Our methods are based on over 30 years’ experience operating predominantly within the professional football environment, at clubs such as Manchester City, Leeds United, Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest.

In 1999, 2002 and 2003, Wayne supported the England Lacrosse Team at the World Lacrosse Games in Australia and the United States of America.

Since then, we have trained and developed individual athletes and teams, both professional and amateur, in athletics, boxing, basketball, swimming, football, golf, tennis and many more.

Whatever your sport, we are ready to take you to the next level.
