PlayBrave is a privately owned British company that was first inspired by the icy chill of the Lake District in the peak of winter. Founder Simon Dowell had been wearing considered, technical layers and felt warm and comfortable in spite of the freezing conditions. However, it was a different story altogether back at Simon's tennis club, where the head coach could hardly swing his racket due to the several bulky items he was wearing to stay warm and dry.

Simon realised then that the world of sport was missing something: all-weather sports gear, designed to be layered without compromising your game. Today, PlayBrave delivers just that, with the bonus that the company’s quality garments are a cut above the global sportswear brands’ and offer customers an alternative to the “mass market uniform.”
