    Taltala, Kolkata

    What Makes It Awesome

    Looking for a perfect pair of leg pads or gloves as seen on Dhoni? Want to get hold of a good-quality cricket ball to be able to bowl like Jasprit Bumrah? Head to this 125-year-old shop on Jawaharlal Nehru Street that will take care of all your sporting ambitions.

    Tucked away inside a row of roadside shops on New Market area, we could have easily missed this store if we didn't suddenly see a big board that reads: Founder Of Sports Goods And Health Equipment. Inside, they live up to the name with a huge collection of sports goods like cricket bats, gloves, wrist supports, footballs, tennis racquets, leg pads and hockey sticks. To play a game of darts with your squad, get hold of their wide range of dartboards starting INR 330.

    For all you wannabe health freaks who have been too lazy to hit the gym recently (or since January!), add handy dumbbells, kettlebells, exercise balls and push-up bars, in varying sizes to your room. Nothing like working out at home!

    While the sports accessories are priced between INR 350 and INR 1,200, the gym equipment starts at INR 500. 

    Pro-Tip

    The staff isn't too helpful, so go after doing your own research on what you want.
