Princeton Sports: A Family Tradition

A love of sports is something that could be considered a hereditary trait in the Davis family. Co-founders Samuel and Lucille Davis first opened the doors to Princeton Sports in 1936, a then bicycle repair and rental shop. Three generations later, Princeton Sports remains family owned and operated, housing 2 locations in Baltimore and Columbia, Maryland which carry the most cutting edge equipment on the East Coast for skiing, snowboarding, swimming, bicycling and tennis.

Not unlike his grandfather over 70 years ago, Princeton Sports Vice President, Paul Davis has a sports enthusiasm that is nothing short of contagious. Paul first began working for Princeton Sports at the age of twelve and upon completing college, moved out to Lake Tahoe to perfect his sales and managerial techniques at a major ski shop. After finishing his training out West, Paul returned to Maryland to take over the Baltimore shop. As a skiing expert, Paul personally tests all of the ski equipment brought into Princeton Sports as well as consistently brings in innovative methods to fit ski boots.

Everyone at Princeton Sports is a firm believer in supporting the community that has supported them from a small bike repair shop to a multi-location true sports enthusiast’s source. Princeton Sports proudly sponsors many community events and fundraisers including The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and hosts a weekly Sunday morning 17-24 mile bike ride welcome to all riders.
