The Association of British Bookmakers is the UK's leading trade association for off-course bookmakers. Together our members operate around 7,000 betting shops and 80% of the market.

8 million people share the excitement of watching sporting events with their friends in a betting shop a year. Bookmakers employ over 40,000 people, and, at a time when one in seven retail outlets is vacant, bookmakers are generating footfall for local high streets and town centres – in fact, a betting shop generates more footfall than any other retailer, except for a post office or pharmacy.
