Established 1901

Whites Sports Shop in Warrington Cheshire was established in 1901 by Mr J.E.White and opened by one of rugby leagues first superstars, Jackie Fish. On the 8th May 2014 Whites Sports Shop was officially recognised by the Guinness World Records as the World's Oldest Sports Shop. 

Whites Sports continue to be influenced by their 113 year history and the values of traditional sporting and country pursuits. They have always taken pride in their core value of being a genuine sports shop with a distinctive connection between the old and new.

The iconic signature and swoosh of Mr J.E.White features on the new Whites1901 heritage range of hoodies and t-shirts. Orders are now coming in from across the globe with sports stars from the Rugby League world, the Summer Paralympics and Winter Olympics all choosing to wear the new range of Whites1901 clothing. Whites Sports are proud of their heritage in Warrington and support of local charities over the years. During June and July Whites Sports are donating all profit from the Whites1901 heritage range to the Warrington Wolves Foundation. A registered charity in Warrington working through the umbrella of sport to help improve education, health and fitness within the community.
