OUR STORY

Our humble beginnings start in 1992. Greg Harten returned home to Australia after working as a tennis coach in Germany for 13 years and started the company, HART Sport & Leisure. The business launched selling all kinds of sporting products and brands via mail-order catalogues to schools across Queensland. It wasn’t long after that we expanded our service, offering the range to the rest of Australia.

After some time, it became apparent that stocking other brands was no longer fitting into our business model. We discovered there were consistent supply problems, quality issues and forever changing prices. This prompted Greg to take control of the supply chain and launch his own brand under the name of HART Sport. We established a manufacturing facility where we now produce over 700 quality foam and vinyl products locally. Since adapting to this business model, our brand has grown exponentially, including opening in New Zealand in 2002.

Today, we have over 100,000 customers made up of schools, sporting clubs, businesses, fitness centres, government organisations & thousands of everyday people who love to use HART at home, on the weekend or with friends & family. We also export our products internationally to over 40 countries!
