I believe in the benefits of sports. Decathlon HK is 70 city sport teams managing autonomously their community offline and online. I believe that we can improve lives through sports, by making sport more accessible. It's what I want us to bring to Hong Kong. Our ambition is to be part of Hong Kong sports communities. We are obsessed by Sport Users satisfaction that is why we decided to put sport at the Core of our Organisation.
HIKING/CAMPING/ TREKKING/ CLIMBING
In Decathlon, the events we organised are different than those held in other companies. Firstly, all events are lead by us, the Omni Sport Leaders. We have a lot of sharing sessions and laughter too during the event. Sometimes, we meet again in the store. These Sport Users even bring their family to visit and use our products. I can see we make sports more accessible in Hong Kong. The relationship between Sport Users and us are more like friends than sales and customers. Our teammates are like one big family. We have a common interest in sports so we always meet up on hills for hiking, camping and rock climbing together after work. Our energetic personality pulls us together, it makes work much more fun! We even have meeting while camping on top of the hill!
CYCLING/ROLLER/ SKATEBOARD/ SCOOTER
It is our pleasure to see the growth in every Sport User. A father came to the store right after our opening as his 6-year-old son wanted a bike for Christmas. Unfortunately, the bike seemed too big for his son. 5 months later, he came back to the store with his son. By then, the child had grown up a little bit and he managed to ride the bike. The father then bought it for his son's birthday. We felt a sense of accomplishment when seeing the boy riding in a straight line with a big smile on his face.
TENNIS/BADMINTON/ TABLE TENNIS/ SQUASH
Sports does not discriminate against age. A mother came to our store to look for sports equipment for her kids. Inspired by Decathlon and our Sport Leaders, she showed interest to join our events and eventually started a new sports life after abandoning sports for ages. The next day, she began to come to one of our yoga classes and had a great time. She thanked us for our great event and the motivation from our Sport Leaders. Now, she keeps sharing her yoga progress with us. I am very proud that we can bring her a new sports life and have a new SPORTS LOVER in our community.
Trail running is to run off the road in nature. Our Sport Users love to discover the nature, search for freedom and encounter challenges through participating races. There is a huge number of races starting from 10km to 168km every year in Hong Kong. The most memorable Sport User we have met was a beginner of the sport and he felt lost as he did not know how to improve. He noticed that our Sport Leader has participated from the 100KM races through the signage we put inside the store and felt excited to seek for race advice and listen to our stories. We assisted him through sharing our experience and he felt relieved to participate in his upcoming race.
Whether you are just starting your fitness journey, or you already have a well-established practice, we welcome all of you to our store. In Decathlon, we are committed to make physical preparation accessible to the many. Nothing makes us happier than seeing a Sport User begin, or carry on his/her physical journey with us and our products. We love to exchange, share, and guide you in your journey.
