OUR JOURNEY SO FAR

In 2010, phase 1 began of the Viper 10 journey to create a cool British Sportswear brand with an online digital business model.

With the digital revolution in full swing, it seemed obvious to embrace the possibilities of a business which would combine amazing customer service with a formidable online platform removing the need for sales staff on the road.

In 2012 we launched Viper 10 with our Ambassadors Lewis Moody (England Rugby Captain) and Pamela Cookey (International Netballer).

Over the past 5 years we have concentrated on creating the best products, quickest turnaround times and ensuring our customer service is market leading.

In this period our customer base has boomed and we now sell to Australia, New Zealand, UAE, Singapore, America and all of Europe.

In 2017, phase 3 of our journey, we launched our award winning website and new 3D Kit Designer alongside our world class Ambassadors Geva Mentor (International Netballer) and Tom Varndell (Premierships top try scorer of all time).

We can’t wait to see what we achieve in the next phase of our brand journey…

THE FOUNDERS

Roger Woodall (Founder & CEO) and Stephanie Essex (Co-Founder & MD), saw a huge gap in the Rugby & Netball market to create a colourful, vibrant and head-turning sportswear brand as they believed the industry needed a shake up.

Roger is a rugby man, having played for Wasps Academy, Loughborough University and Leicester Tigers in the late 1990s. He is also the owner of The Bournemouth 7s Festival, which welcomes over 400 teams each year.

Stephanie Essex a former Superleague and England U21 Netballer, played sport at the very highest level and witnessed first-hand the problems with kit in the Netball world. With an outstanding eye for design and passion for sport, she was perfectly placed to make sure Viper 10 stands out from the crowd.

Roger and Stephanie are now supported by a fantastic team of talented individuals at Viper 10 Headquarters in Bournemouth, UK.

Viper 10 Sportswear is a privately owned family business.
