Crown Sports Lockers celebrates 25 years

The style and quality of changing room provision have been transformed over the last 25 years. Crown intend to lead its evolution over the next 25.
– Spencer Grimwood, project manager at Crown Sports Lockers

Twenty five years ago, Crown Sports Lockers’ founder, Richard Downing, walked into Addington Palace Golf Club to talk changing rooms with its then secretary Lawrence Dennis-Smither.

The changing facilities Crown installed at the prestigious venue are still going strong a generation later.

“I visit every year for a golf event,” said Dennis-Smither, “and the lockers barely show their age. They are in excellent condition.”

Since then, Crown has evolved into arguably the UK’s leading bespoke timber changing room furniture manufacturer and installer.

Its purpose-built factory and dedicated spray line can make and deliver tailored solutions for operators not only in golf but across the leisure, hospitality, fitness, office and industrial sectors.

Crown’s extensive list of long-standing customers attest to the product quality, installation know-how and dedicated project management the company brings to every project.

Gidi Matlin, head of FF & E for Village Hotels, said: "Quality of finish, fitout reliability and a single point of contact during projects are key advantages of specifying Crown Sports Lockers."

Dennis-Smither has chosen Crown at each of the three golf clubs he's managed. Now working as the secretary at Seaford, Dennis-Smither has also specified Crown for the Highwoods Golf Club.

“They deliver a quality product you can trust, so why look elsewhere," he said.

Award-winning sport and leisure operator The Club Company chose Crown to upgrade its changing provision and crèche at its flagship Woodbury Park golf and leisure destination.

“Crown’s capability in providing a turnkey solution saves me a fair deal of money and I know they will deliver top-end quality and finishes throughout, with little, if any, snagging,” said project manager Mark Warne.

Whatever the size of the project, from educational establishments such as Cheltenham Ladies College to bijou fitness sites like CYC:D boutique fitness studio, Crown’s project management process ensures delivery on time and on budget.

The company offers the full spread of locking systems, padlock, traditional key, digital keypad and RFID, as environments demand, as well as bespoke surfaces such as Egger PerfectSense Matt finish with a special anti-fingerprint property.

And for sites that prefer to fit out their own changing provision, Crown supplies a diverse selection of product options and will advise clients on how best to ensure the installation matches their expectations.

"The style and quality of changing room provision have been transformed over the last 25 years. Crown intend to lead its evolution over the next 25," said Spencer Grimwood, project manager at Crown Sports Lockers.
