A canny Leeds company has designed a range of Olympic-themed garden sheds featuring diving boards and velodromes.

Horsforth-based Tiger Sheds is targeting the elite athlete market with the wooden structures that can also double up as training facilities.

The cabins can be customised to incorporate a 100-metre running track for budding sprinters, a velodrome for cyclists or five- and 10-metre diving boards.

The firm has even issued a ‘gold medal guarantee’ for its new product line - although there are some fairly demanding terms and conditions.

The luxury sheds come complete with sound systems pre-programmed with inspirational music, inflatable toys and puncture repair kits.

Tiger Sheds are known for their quirky designs, having already manufactured the world’s first ‘spider-proof’ shed.

Company director Jack Sutcliffe said:

“We’re as excited about this summer’s festival of sport as anybody else and we just had to get involved. We know our customers are inspired to get out and try new sports whenever an event like this comes along, so we wanted to give them the chance to do so in their very own back garden.”

The light-hearted guarantee means customers cannot claim their money back if they have trained for fewer than six hours a day, failed a random equipment inspection or engaged in any disorderly conduct.

Tiger Sheds claim that the unique products have received ‘excellent’ customer reviews, although none have been sold so far.

Prices range from £14,900 for the 100m cabin to an eye-watering £49,500 for your own personal velodrome - although free delivery is thrown in.
