Award-winning south east sports facility “K Sports Cobdown” up for sale through Christie & Co

Specialist business property advisor, Christie & Co is delighted to report the award-winning, “K Sports Cobdown” sports facility near Maidstone, Kent is up for sale.


Set within grounds extending to circa 28 acres, the property comprises of floodlit FIFA/WRU 3G & AGP football, rugby and hockey pitches and four grass pitches, boasting s­ome of the best surfaces in the county, a state-of-the-art gym with Technogym equipment, squash courts and a Clubhouse which offers a restaurant, sports bar and function room.

Combining both elite and community sport divisions, the facility welcomes hundreds of players as part of its clubs; K Sports FC, K Sports Hockey and K Sports Squash and Croquet Club and enjoys an ever-increasing level of sales from its diverse multiple income streams.
 
The sale of K Sports Cobdown presents a rare opportunity to purchase a superior freehold sports facility with significant grounds. Since 2016, the property has received significant ongoing investment to transform what was previously known as Cobdown Sports Grounds into K Sports, one of the most modern and well-constructed multi-sport facilities in the South East.

There is potential for a new owner to grow the functions and events side of the business, along with possibly developing certain pockets of the grounds, subject to necessary planning consents being obtained.
The business is being sold in its entirety as a going concern and it will be business as usual for staff and customers during the transition to new ownership.

The current owner, Rod Clark, Managing Director of Marpaul comments, “It has been extremely satisfying to see Cobdown evolve into the place it is today, with the creation of K Sports and the facilities it now offers. With the solid foundations laid I feel it’s the right time for somebody to take it to the next level as I look to retire. I look forward to finding the right buyer to take the business forward.”

Andrew Moore, Director in Christie & Co’s Hospitality & Leisure team is handling the sale and adds, “The sale of K Sports is an exciting and rare opportunity to purchase a substantial freehold sporting facility in the heart of Kent, which is not to be missed. Offers over £4,500,000 are invited for the freehold and we are taking viewings, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to see the property.”
