History:
Fontana Sports is a locally owned, family operated Madison-based specialty outdoor retailer with over six decades of experience in the Midwest. The name Fontana comes from Fontana, WI where the store was originally founded in 1949 by current President John Hutchinson's father Clarence Hutchinson. John opened his first Madison location on State Street in 1972 after graduating from UW-Madison and has continued to have a store in the downtown area since then (now at 216 North Henry St). Fontana Sports also has a West Madison location at 231 Junction Road. John met his wife, Judith Hutchinson while instructing Scuba classes for Fontana Sports. Their children, Elizabeth and John J., have been and are actively involved with Fontana Sports as well.
