The competition coincides with Decathlon’s new store opening in Westfield Miranda in mid-March this year.

Since arriving in Australia in 2017, Decathlon has opened six stores, two in Sydney (Tempe and Auburn) and four in Melbourne (Box Hill, Moorabbin, Knox Field and South Morang), launched partnerships to extend the reach of its click and collect services and continued to invest in new store sites. 

Decathlon Sports Equipment Giveaway 2022

The Decathlon Competition will give away a total of $6,000 in sports equipment prizes to local schools and sports clubs in the Sutherland Shire. The competition will run for a month from 14 February to 14 March. 

The local Shire community will determine the prize winners by nominating their school or sports club. To enter, local Shire residents simply need to jump on to the website to vote. Use the links below to vote for your school or club.

“The last few years of the pandemic have been tough for everyone, especially schools, students and their families,” Decathlon Australia CEO, Olivier Robinet said.

“Not only has school been disrupted, but sporting activities have been postponed. Many of the sporting activities that kids know and love have been put on hold.  As a result, sporting equipment has sat around unused."

“As we know, sport is one of the most important activities to keep us mentally and physically healthy. Not only is it good for your wellbeing, it is also good for your self-esteem, socialising, comradery and social connection building.

“Whether you swim or play soccer, tennis, table tennis, basketball, lawn bowls or cricket, sport is something that everyone can participate in.

“As students return to school, we want to help schools and their students reactivate all their sports programs and activities with brand new equipment.

“This Competition is a fantastic way for local Sutherland Shire schools and sports clubs to win thousands of dollars’ worth of sporting equipment.”

The prizes consist of First Prize, a Decathlon voucher to the value of $3,000, Second Prize, a Decathlon voucher to the value of $2,000 and Third Prize, a Decathlon voucher to the value of $1,000. 

It is literally most votes wins!

“Winners of the Decathlon Schools Competition will be able to use their winning voucher on whatever Decathlon sporting equipment they like,” Robinet added.

“At Decathlon, our core focus is to make sports accessible to the many - supporting people to live healthy lives, connecting and engaging with others in their community.  

“Our Decathlon Schools Competition is our way of fulfilling our purpose of helping people across the community when it is needed most; our purpose is at the heart of why every Decathlon team member comes to work every day, and now is an important time for us to live this purpose, locally."
