The success story that is Outside Sports today began in 1995 when John and Judy Knight moved to Queenstown and opened their first outdoor sports shop and called it Outside Sports. Their vision was to create a unique outdoor sports shop that was dramatically different from any other store in Queenstown, and to have a product range devoted exclusively to outdoor sports. They wanted Queenstowners to enjoy and be as passionate about the outdoors as they were.

The formula certainly worked and in 1996 the company moved to the top of the Queenstown Mall and they never looked back. The store operated seven days a week, running a retail shop, rentals and a workshop. In 1998 the Outside Sports store further expanded and introduced the ever popular range of Icebreaker Clothing.

In 2003 Outside Sports moved its operation into an award winning purpose built building in Shotover Street, and then again in 2015, just up the road where we are currently operating out of today.

In 2009 Outside Sports merged with Outside Sports Te Anau, owned by John Greaney, and Good Sports Wanaka, owned by Peter King, further increasing Outside Sports identity within the region. Today, Outside Sports has 4 stores, Queenstown’s Shotover Street, Queenstown Airport's Touch lab, Te Anau, and Wanaka.  The company is owned by John and Judy Knight and Peter King.  John Knight is the General Manager for the group.
