Pickings in this arena were quite slim, but the last 2 years or so have seen some growth. T&T’s recommendations for sports stuff are below.
260/1 Pannipitiya Road Pelawatta Battaramulla, Ruhunupura | Opening Hours: 9am – 9pm | 0112 785 330
A fantastic addition to Colombo, making sport equipment far more accessible and affordable. If they do not have what you’re looking for in stock, then they are very happy to assist you and order them in from India. Although it is incredibly hot in the shop, they have really tried to consider all your shopping needs; the kids can try out the skateboards or roller blades, and there is a basketball court and football pitch thats free to use. You can also rent equipment for parties, which is genius. T&T loves this place.
411 Kotte Road,Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte | Opening Hours: 9am – 7pm | 0115 102 323
This is the place for buying your gym equipment. Be prepared however, although they are able to bring in good brands you will be paying up to 3 times the price, and it can take up to 3 months to bring your order in.
61A Thimbirigasyaya Rd, Colombo 5 | Opening Hours: 9.30am – 7pm | 0112 554 254
Deep End focuses more on creative swimwear than Glory (they’re also located opposite each other so you can be functional and fancy at the same time). It’s a really lovely space selling Pigeon Island swim wear and other brands. Also, there are some cool brands for the surfer in you.
