Yes, check out the sports section at Walmart or ask your local wal-mart representative to assist you. You could also get a bike and ride it around town. You could find all kinds of balls...basketball, soccerball, football.

I have a coworker from Chengdu and he said there is a place called Haitun Sports which should carry stuff like that.  It's on South Renmin Road apparently.  I personally don't know Chengdu, but I'm told you can find what you're looking for there.  I guess they don't have big equipment like treadmills, etc.  But hand weights and the like they should.

I'm also told that Chengdu hosts the China International Sporting Goods show, so I suppose it should be easy enough to find sporting goods there!

I bought a couple of 10 pounds hand weights for home excercizing at the local Walmart store and paid about 80 Rmb each.  They had a few of different weights, like from 5 to 10 pounds each.  I also bought a couple of those hand springs to squeeze as I sit watching TV or computer, those where 27 Rmb for the pair.
If you are into a Walmart store, look for the bike display area, and what you are looking for should be nearby.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
