Decathlon

Making sports as accessible as possible

We believe that experiencing new sports, being active, and living well shouldn’t be limited to a privileged few. We have teamed up with the international sports retailer, Decathlon to make the pleasures and benefits of sports accessible to the many.

Fuelled by innovation, Decathlon designs, develops, and sells equipment for more than 60 types of sports. Its product portfolio includes 20 passion brands like Quechua, b’Twin, Kalenji and Tribord, all of which are available at affordable prices under one roof.

Decathlon Mauritius is owned and operated by ENsport, an ENL Commercial subsidiary. It opened its first retail outlet at Bagatelle Mall on 13 May 2021. The store is run by a team of 40 sports enthusiasts who are eager to inspire, guide and help customers in their choices of sporting experiences.

ENL’s association with Decathlon conveys a shared commitment to support sporting activities for better health and well-being. The group’s previous initiatives include the creation of the multidisciplinary Moka Rangers Sports Club and Synergy Sports & Wellness Institute, as well as annual events like the Moka Tennis Open and the Moka Trail.
