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.

1. Decathlon

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.

2. The Chance Sports

N 70/3, Ground Floor, YMBA Shopping Complex(70 D.S Senanayake Mawatha), Colombo 8
They are not very expensive and stock branded stuff. Great for presents.

3. Eser Marketing

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.

4. Skate Sri Lanka

8, Ascot Avenue, Colombo 5 | Opening Hours: 9am to 5pm (Closed on weekends) | 0112 507 764
Awesome collection of skateboards and related equipment. They’ve also got surf equipment, which is detailed in the next entry on this list.

5. ONDA Pvt Ltd

8. Deep End

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.

9. Aussie Swim Store

G10(recently changed), Crescat Boulevard, Basement Level, # 75, Galle Road, Colombo 3 | Opening hours: 10am – 7.30pm (Open from 11am to 6.00pm on Sundays) | 077 827 2888
