TCK Sports Group: ‘A fresh perspective on sports distribution’

Almost everyone who enjoys the outdoors can be seen using one of our brands. Many hikers in the Benelux put on our LOWA walking shoes, throw on a deuter backpack, and grab a SIGG drinking bottle before heading out the door. The Dutch Olympic swimmers all dive into the pool wearing arena swimwear. Almost every winter sports enthusiast is familiar with one or more of our brands and confidently hurtles down the mountain with Nordica, Blizzard, Tecnica, Völkl, Dalbello, or uvex. And keen cyclists hit the road with ORTLIEB and GONSO. We represent the best outdoor, winter sports, swimming, and cycling brands in the Benelux.


TCK Sports Group was founded in 1972 by Guido Schaffrath as a repair and stringing service for tennis rackets. Since then, TCK has developed into a flourishing business with sixty-five employees, distributing more than twenty premium sports brands within the Benelux.


Our aim is to continue providing added value to both our suppliers and customers in an innovative manner. How? By gathering and sharing knowledge, pursuing an effective risk management policy, guaranteeing quick deliveries, and offering professional services, including sales, logistics, customer service, marketing, automation, and administration.


Our secret is to offer a solid partnership to both our suppliers and our customers. Our company has been growing, developing, and strengthening existing relationships and building new ones for almost 50 years. This combination of ambition, courage, and intelligence is what makes our company so successful.


At TCK Sports Group we think and act like the brand and translate this to the market in line with our ‘Think global, act local’ motto.


Fonds Gehandicaptensport (Disabled Sports Fund) believes that exercise makes you physically and mentally strong. For many people with a disability, taking part in sports is the best way to cope better with obstacles in their day-to-day life. For this reason, our company has been a proud sponsor of the Dutch Disabled Ski Team for 30 years.


In 2019, TCK Sports Group was awarded the ISO 14001 certificate for Environmental Management. This certificate confirms that our organization implements environmentally friendly practices and that we are dedicated to making continuous improvements in this regard.
