Sports Basement, San Francisco

#57 of 97 in Outdoors in San Francisco
Outdoor Activity · Gear Rental
Sports Basement was founded in 1998 in a warehouse in San Francisco's Mission Bay neighborhood. Since then the business has grown to four huge stores covering the San Francisco Bay Area. The Santa Rosa store opened in 2017.

The runners, swimmers, backpackers, fitness fans, and triathletes who shop with us come for great prices and top-notch service. Many know that our prices are low because we buy overstock and excess inventory from quality manufacturers and pass along the savings.

They also know that our store is their store, so they come to hold monthly club meetings, to host potlucks, to start a workout from our front doors or to pick up some tips at a speaker series event. Swing by next time you're feeling active!

  • I just love shopping at this place. Their selection of what I need is fantastic but truly the best part is how friendly (and knowledgeable..) the staff is. I shop here often and always bring my dog with me. The staff know him and he knows who keeps a stash of treats. Great place.
  • Love the bike shop here. Always learn something new and get serviced very quickly. Never feel like I'm getting over sold. Been coming here for years and really appreciate the staff.
