Balan Sports was Established in 1975, by the former Welsh Juniors Badminton Coach, D.R. Balakrishnan. Or, as we know him, Balan.


Hi Everyone,

We hope you're all keeping well & staying safe 😘🌈😘.

As Christmas is swiftly approaching (10 more sleeps....🙈🙈🙈),The Balan Sports Elves have been extremely busy fulfilling orders for our amazing customers.

So, as they have all been so good & efficient by over exceeding themselves on the production line, we have decided to give them all an extra day off before the man in the Big Red suit arrives, so they can spend more time with their families. Therefore, we will be closing our doors on 2021 at 4pm Tuesday 21st December!!

We would just like to take this opportunity in thanking all our amazing customers for their continued custom & support during such a difficult year for us all. It truly does mean a lot to us as a small Company.

Team Balan wishes you all a very Healthy & Happy Christmas & a better New year for you all.

Please take care & please stay safe🎄☃️🎅🎄☃️🎅🎄xxx
