The Grand National
Website The Aintree Grand National
Details The most famous horserace in the world. The origins of the Grand National can be traced back to the first official races at Aintree which were initiated by the owner of Liverpool's Waterloo Hotel, Mr William Lynn. Lynn who leased the land from Lord Sefton, built a course, built a grandstand and staged the first Flat fixture on July 7, 1829.

The Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race
Website The Boat Race
Details The idea for a rowing race between the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge came from two friends - Charles Merivale, a student at Cambridge, and his Harrow schoolfriend Charles Wordsworth (nephew of the poet William Wordsworth), who was at Oxford.

On 12 March 1829, Cambridge sent a challenge to Oxford and thus the tradition was born which has continued to the present day, where the loser of the previous yearís race challenges the opposition to a re-match.

The Modern Boat Race still runs along the same lines but has now become a major international sporting occasion drawing millions of viewers from around the world.

Wimbledon
Website Wimbledon
Details The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, which is responsible for staging the world's leading tennis tournament, is a private Club founded in 1868, originally as 'The All England Croquet Club'. Its first ground was situated off Worple Road, Wimbledon. In 1875 lawn tennis, a game introduced by major Walter Clopton Wingfield a year or so earlier and originally called 'Sphairistike', was added to the activities of the Club. In the spring of 1877 the Club was re-titled 'The All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club' and signalled its change of name by instituting the first Lawn Tennis Championship. A new code of laws, hitherto administered by the Marylebone Cricket Club was drawn up for the meeting. These have stood the test of time and today's rules are similar except for details such as the height of the net and posts and the distance of the service line from the net.
In recent years long-standing records have been broken. In 1980 Bjorn Borg of Sweden became the first player to win the Gentlemen's Singles five times in succession since the 1880s. In 1985 Boris Becker became the youngest player, the first unseeded player and the first German to win the Gentlemen's Singles. In 1987 Martina Navratilova of the United States became the first player to win the Ladies' Singles six times in succession and in 1990 attained the all-time record of nine victories in the event. Pete Sampras of the United States registered his seventh win in 2000. In 2001, Goran Ivanisevic became the first wildcard to win the Gentlemen's Singles.
The 100th Championships in 1986 were celebrated in a variety of ways, including a special Dinner Party for those who had made significant contributions over the years, and the formation of the Last 8 Club. 1993 marked the 100th Ladies' Championships and the occasion was suitably commemorated. 
Wimbledon is acknowledged to be the premier tennis tournament in the world.

Spirit of Sport
Website Spirit of Sport
Details Spirit of Sport was formed in 2000 by a group of private collectors who had been buying and selling memorabilia since the 1980ís. During the 1990ís they became somewhat disenchanted by the ever growing number of fraudulent items being offered for sale. This gave them the idea and motivation to start a company whereby like-minded individuals are offered genuine memorabilia at affordable prices, supported by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

The Company has grown and diversified somewhat since then and now employs 15 people with a dedicated warehousing and distribution centre based near Reading in Berkshire. There are also regional offices in Cardiff and Cornwall.

Spirit of Sport is now recognised as one of the leading Sports Memorabilia and Promotions companies with associations and partnering agreements with a number of sporting organisations, and leading high-profile sports men and women.

Midland are the UK's leading independent supplier of specialist pre-recorded budget CD and DVD products to non-traditional outlets. A family run business of some 50 years whose journey began on the rain and snow lashed markets of the  Midlands. The business expanded rapidly during the sixties and seventies with Midland becoming a leading player in the wholesale distribution of major label overstocks and deletions worldwide, whilst continuing to service the non traditional retail sector here in the UK.

With the industry wide problem of piracy and downloading making higher value products virtually impossible to retail, Midland felt the need to give our customers something different and have concentrated our efforts towards the more neglected areas of audio, visual home entertainment, and now stock what we believe to be the most comprehensive range of Special Interest DVDís in the UK.

Our core business of supplying our customers with ranges of super budget and budget CD and DVD remains the same, but we have now incorporated these new specialist product lines aimed specifically at the online market place namely Amazon, Play, and Ebay.

With over 6000 titles available and new lines arriving daily we are confident that you will find many items that will compliment your existing range of product. Should you need any help with your initial selections please contact us, with over 50 years experience you can be sure our advice will prove invaluable.
