Import Sporting Goods and Equipment to Australia
Multi chain retail stores are great for stocking mainstream equipment and apparel, but if you are serious about your sport, you go to a specialist store.
A specialist store for your sport understands unique requirements. A niche import business in Australia focused on a specific sport is not restricted to the local area and has a ready market across Australia and New Zealand, and maybe even export markets.
Think of every club, school and competition across Australia/New Zealand playing your sport; now think about every independent sports retailer – that is your market. Create an account today and get your sports product idea into action.

How to Import Sporting Goods and Equipment
Learn to quickly assess products at a glance, checking restrictions, standards and margins. Also learn to check suppliers quickly, and make sure the money you send for samples and products is going to a legitimate supplier.
For sports equipment you have two major considerations:
- Safety – is the product up to a sufficient quality standard? What is the likelihood of injury from the product
- Labelling and markings – leather, shoe sand certain types of goods must be correctly marked to clear customs.
Where to Import Sporting Goods and Equipment from?
Many Australian and New Zealand sports are not truly global. For instance netball, cricket, AFL, rugby union and league and hockey are restricted to countries with British influence Therefore you may find it difficult to find specialist suppliers of regional sports in China, where these sports are rarely played.
However India and Pakistan have thriving manufacturing sectors and make specific products with better insight to Australian sports. Pakistan is a huge exporter of leather and padding products, while India has a range of specialities for ‘stick’ sports – cricket and hockey in particular.
Think where your sports is mostly played, then think of low cost manufacturing sectors near those countries.
