About Us

Sturdy Sports is one of the fastest growing retailers in the Australian cricket industry, offering great cricket gear online since 2012. More recently our online customers told us the 'touch and feel' of our products was important so after a great response from loyal clients and the general public, we established a physical retail store in Australia in 2016. Sturdy Sports is now conveniently located 15 minutes drive from CBD with great connectivity to public transport and free parking.


For many years, and prior to launching Sturdy Sports, our management and staff lived through the cricket retail experience and fully understand the needs and wants of cricket consumers. Sometimes poor knowledge or a lack of training has hurt this consumer experience, but Sturdy Sports is different. They match the cricketer's needs with the best option available considering product suitability, quality and price. The customer's needs are always put first.

Importantly, we stock all major cricket brands (including international brands) and can therefore offer an extensive range of cricket equipment and apparel. We are a 'One Stop Shop' for all your cricketing needs, recently expanding our range to offer customised game day and training apparel. Launched in July 2019, our partnership with The Shane Warne PROJECT (SW23) enables us to supply great quality retail and customised clothing with innovation, comfort and quick turn-around times, all innovated and designed by the great man himself! We are pleased to announce that we are the first and major stockist of SW23 apparel in Australia.

Our highly skilled staff can also tackle any kind of bat repair on site. They are highly trained and know the importance of a professional finish for your prized possession. Using the latest high-tech machinery, we apply innovative applications to get you scoring runs again in no time.

Buying cricket gear is a highly personal choice and ensures the long hours in the field or at the crease are rewarded with your best performance. Sturdy Sports will make sure your needs are matched perfectly to take your game to the next level. Be sure to drop into our Melbourne store or visit www.sturdysports.com.au to talk with our friendly and experienced staff – you'll be pleasantly surprised!
