About Us

To start off, my name is James Bertrand, the founder and Managing Director of The Backyard Leisure Guys. I founded this company because I want children
to get the feeling of independence in the garden, like I did when I was growing up.

I am a double below knee amputee, after complications at birth with my Identical Twin brother. When growing up, I found it very difficult to be independent. However, I remember, once I got onto my trampoline
I felt like I didn't have my 'disability' any more and felt as if I was free, which gave me the confidence to go on and ride a go-kart for the first time or play on the climbing frame. I want to be able to give that sense of freedom to children all across the UK just like I had.

We are a specialist retailer selling Backyard Leisure Equipment. Our goal is to provide every customer with a fantastic shopping experience by offering outstanding customer service and high quality products at excellent prices. Ultimately, we strive to give children (and adults!) the time of their lives and a big smile on their faces when they use our products!

Our head office is located in London but we distribute from warehouses across the UK through courier partners e.g. FedX, UPS, UKMail and DHL.

We are passionate about the products we sell and we aim to offer the best customer service within the backyard leisure industry.
