Ten Second Takeaway

Decathlon, the French sporting goods retailer, opened a large store in November 2015 in Gurgaon, with a huge selection of sports goods, and boy, this store is amazing.

Fitness gear utopia 

If you’re a sportsman, athlete or fitness fanatic, chances are you’ve heard of Decathlon. If you aren’t, then we’re about to open your eyes to a whole new world of sports retail. With equipment, clothing and accessories for all your athletic needs, and we mean all, they are the Mecca of all sporting goods. And we mean that.

Everything you need

Their selection of gear is so extensive you can be forgiven for forgetting what you came in for. They have equipment for combat sports {like Tae Kwondo, karate, kick boxing, judo and boxing}, fishing equipment, basketball and football gear, golfing equipment, running paraphernalia, horse riding extras {except the horse}, target sports {including archery and darts}, racket sports, and all fitness-related gear {including body and cardio training and gymnastics}.

Phew, listing that was a workout in itself.

If those sports are too mainstream for you, they even have a collection of adventure sports gear for climbing, mountaineering, trekking and camping. If they don’t have the item you are looking for, they usually are able to place an order and get it for you at a later date.

Something for everyone

DecathlonWith such a large space, the Gurgaon store is set to host events for athletes, kids and families {as they did on Valentine’s Day}, and regularly offer clearance sales. With such a wide selection of goods, we suggest you definitely check those out.

Oh, and the prices aren’t half bad either, particularly if you compare them with name brands like Adidas and Nike.

#LBBTip: If you’re looking for a very specific item or brand that is tough to find, we suggest you call them beforehand and check for availability {to save yourself a trip}.
