Continuing a tradition of customer service excellence.

When you encounter the bold and memorable Allsports brand coupled with a beautiful ultramodern store and eye-catching merchandising, it is natural for customers to assume that Allsports is a national chain. But that’s not the case…

Allsports is based in Lexington, Kentucky and has been locally owned and operated since 1972. Owners Blaine and Michele Atkins and their staff carry on the tradition of sales and customer service excellence that was begun by Blaine’s father, Ron Atkins.

The original store on Clay Avenue, Allsports Tennis and Things, was born of necessity. An avid tennis player, Ron found a growing demand for tennis rackets and tennis shoes. Even before the first little shop on Clay Avenue, Ron was stringing rackets in his garage and selling tennis shoes out of the trunk of his car.

The store rode the wave of the 1970s tennis boom and the popularity of emerging brands like Adidas and Nike. By 1974, the store moved into its first Fayette Mall location, and 2010 brought the debut of the current, spacious 12,000-square-foot storefront in Fayette Mall.
