The Village Sport store first opened its doors way back in 1980 in the Inner West. Originally it was part of a joint retail outlet with Balmain Disposals, right in the heart of "Tiger" territory. The two stores quickly became an institution in the area, before the camping store finally closed its doors in 1992. Three months later, The Village Sport was purchased by brothers Robert & Brian Melkie and remained at 252 Darling Street until mid August 2000. Due to the growth in the Balmain-Rozelle, inner west, district, it became obvious that the area could accommodate a much larger sports store, hence the big decision was made to expand and increase the variety of sporting goods on offer. On 6th August 2000 we made our big move - The Village Sport is now located at 247 Darling Street, Balmain in a shop three times larger than its previous size.
