What started out as a discussion over where to go to buy softball gear turned into an idea for Direct Sports Supply. In 1987, there was no Amazon, Facebook, Google or anything that could connect you with your favorite gear in the click of button. What did exist were print catalogs and telephones to order what you wanted. In 1988, our first print catalog was mailed. From a small office with three telephones and one computer, a tiny sporting goods company quickly grew. In 1997, a new 30,000 square foot facility was built, consisting of offices, a call center and warehouse space. Since the doors opened in that small building in Rich Creek, VA 30 years ago, Direct Sports has become one of the most respected and long standing companies in the baseball & softball industry. In recent years, we have fielded numerous requests to serve local schools, athletic departments, and leagues with volleyball equipment. From that, Volleyball Direct was formed and offers a full line of volleyball gear.
