KAWASAKI SPORTS

Kawasaki, the international Japanese brand was founded in Japan in 1896. Besides their legendary automotive presence,  Kawasaki is also present and well known in industries such as aerospace, heavy industry, motorcycle, marine, transportation and more.

Kawasaki Sports industry was founded separately in 1915, growing to become one of the world’s leading sports brands, especially in Badminton. In 2002, Shenzhen Chuanqi Sports Co., Ltd from China acquired the Kawasaki Sporting Goods trademark in the Asia-Pacific region investing further in research and development besides new production facilities that exceed international standards. Now, Kawasaki not only deals with all Badminton related products including Badminton rackets, shuttlecocks, sportswear, professional sports shoes, accessories, and bags but also sports products for Tennis, Swimming and more.

Continuing this dedicated focus, Kawasaki Sports joined hands with international badminton legend and super coach Li Mao (who has trained ace player like Lee Chong Wei) to collaborate as Kawasaki’s global Badminton consultant. In March of 2013, Kawasaki International Badminton Club was established in Malaysia and in 2014, Kawasaki Badminton Club moved to Shenzhen, China.

Now, Kawasaki Sports has entered the Indian subcontinent with New Vision Distributors Pvt Ltd to capitalize on the growing sports market and help promote Badminton in India. Our products are already available all over India and so far, we have opened three exclusive Kawasaki stores and are opening more in the coming months. We are always looking forward to work with more retailers and sports academies for potential synergies.
