About Piranha Sports
The Piranha brand was conceived in May 2006 during a fact finding sourcing mission to China with 6 like-minded sports retailers. After much brain storming and numerous Tsingtao beers one evening, “Piranha” was born. The logo was designed on the plane on the way home, and on touching down at Heathrow, the excitement to launch the brand was overwhelming.
As Hawkinsport, we have been supplying clubs and schools for 50 years with all their sporting requirements, and wanted a brand to fit into the Hawkinsport mould which was producing good quality technical kit at affordable prices, with a service which was second to none. Piranha is run by ex-sports players who have a good understanding of what works and what doesn’t. We source products from the UK, India, the Far East and Eastern Europe and are always striving to improve products and of course prices.
We don’t claim to be the cheapest around – you get what you pay for- and we believe that we produce products which leading in technology and are excellent value for money. We have produced a range of playing, training and leisure wear which is available from Hawkinsport.

We were on to something……
