Playing or participating in a sport is a great way to meet new people, be active and have fun. If you are a runner or a swimmer, you may not have any issues with storing your equipment due to it being very minimal but there are many other sports where bigger equipment is necessary.
How do you store your sports equipment?
Most sports will require you to have a pair of specialist footwear so finding a shoe rack or cupboard is an easy way to stop them cluttering up your doorway or entrance hall.
If you have larger equipment such as football goals or basketball hoops that can be disassembled then do this to save space. Large quantities of inflatable balls should also be deflated. This will mean they can take up significantly less space.
If you have a separate kit for your sport such as football, netball or cricket, it might be worth storing your kit in your kit bag once it is washed and dried. This will save you time on having to pack your bag before that all important match!
Keeping your equipment as décor
Rather than hide away your favourite tennis racket or hockey stick, why not place it in a room out on display? This can help bring some character to the room as well as being easy to grab when you are off to go and play. Wall hooks or shelving are the perfect way to do this.
Stopping my sports equipment getting damaged
Finding a suitable storage solution for your sports equipment, isn’t just about space saving, but preventing damage too. Older wooden bats, rackets and sticks require oiling. Most modern sports equipment doesn’t but its best to make sure it is clean and dry before you put it away.
