The two sports stores will be located on the East Terrace, which is due to open later this summer as part of the grand opening of Phase 2 of the retail and leisure destination.

Also Hobbycraft, Wren Kitchens and AJ Cycles will have stores on the East Terrace.

The raft of store openings comes a year after Rushden Lakes opened its doors to the public. The first of its kind in the UK, the destination offers a premium shopping experience with a line-up of brands including Jigsaw, Hobbs and L’Occitane, as well as variety of outdoor activities. The scheme is set in over 200 acres of wetlands which is managed by the Wildlife Trust.

More than 20 stores opened during Phase 1 of the shopping destination, including independent clothing brand Robert Goddard, which is preparing to launch an upsized space following overwhelming success.

The decision to double its presence at Rushden Lakes will see Robert Goddard trade from 4,600 square feet across two stores, the second of which will launch later this year.

Hayley Turley, The Crown Estate’s asset manager for Rushden Lakes, said: “Rushden Lakes has had a successful first year, welcoming four and a half million people. The opening of East Terrace brings fantastic new brands to Northamptonshire and will give visitors more opportunities to connect with our outstanding natural surroundings.

"With further phases of Rushden Lakes on track for launch in 2019, we will continue to enhance our overall offer and create even more reasons to visit.”
