If you are a sports enthusiast and are looking for gear to cover all your sporting needs, you’ve clicked on the right recommendation. From surfboards and jerseys of your favourite football club to gym wear for women and men, these stores will help you stock up on your sports and fitness supplies.


Decathlon is known for its accessible prices. One of the world’s largest sporting goods retailers, their trademark blue-and-white warehouse has every sports and fitness related-equipment you can imagine. Their stock covers over 50 sports, including fishing equipment, giant trampolines, surfboards and camping gear. You can scour their collection online, order and pick it up from the outlet. Even if you’re not looking to buy, you can have a fun day out just playing with stuff, testing out their cycles, and more.

GK Sports

Established in 1942, the city’s sportsmen have been frequenting GK Sports for all their sports, gym and fitness needs for as long as anyone can remember. You can even pick up stuff for your home gym. The staff is extremely well versed with the products and will help you out if you’re having a tough time.

Planet Sports

A good place to get all major brands under one roof – they have products from Nike, Reebok, Puma and more – it makes it really easy to compare prices and products. For basic sporting needs like swimsuits, shoes, running attire, you can head here. Since they’re always pretty busy, they may not be able to give you the individual attention required to make more substantial purchases like tennis rackets or cricket bats so we recommend you go for quick-buy sports stuff.


Buying gym equipment and fitness accessories has never been easier. They have everything you need for your home gym and lots of options to choose from – treadmills, stationary exercise bikes and even massage chairs. You can check out their entire collection online before heading to the store. They will deliver the equipment to your doorstep and even service and repair your stuff.

Maidan Market

Officially known as the ‘Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy Market’, Maidan Market is a haven for sportsmen of the city. This huge maze has about 400 shops which remain open every day except Sundays. The products are all extremely reasonably priced (even dirt cheap if you’re good at bargaining). There’s no shortage of stores with football and cricket equipment but you have to hunt for goods for other sports. You can even get a trophy customised or jerseys from your favourite IPL team. Forget YouTube, these shop owners will give you a first-hand tutorial on maintaining and fixing your equipment. Some of them even accept PayTM if you don’t want to carry cash into the crowds.

Located in Park Street, has all the gear you need for different sports like badminton, basketball, cricket, hockey, squash, table tennis, volleyball, golf, and football. From rackets, balls, and blades to kit bags, gloves, and protective gear, this sports shop stocks it all. You will also find a wide variety of shoes depending on the sport you play. They also stock gym wear for women and men.
