The Sporting Goods You Can Keep in Your Garage

Jul 11, 2022
Out of all the spaces in your house, the garage is the most common area you run to when you have athletic gear to store. Aside from being a massive vacant space, why is that so? One of the reasons might probably be because you use sports equipment outdoors so it helps that you have quick access to these sports gear anytime you need it. You don’t want to be running upstairs to your bedroom just to get a badminton racquet or a volleyball ball. You also don’t use sporting goods on a daily or even a regular basis, which means you only pull them out a few times in a month or even in a year. If it’s gym equipment, you need a space at home to store your dumbbells, bars, treadmill, etc, and a space as well to use them freely without constricting movement. The garage provides just that. So it should come as no surprise that athletic gear has found their home in the garage. When you haven’t been using them for a while, of course, some might already be accumulating dust and you might want to consider selling these already or giving them out to your relatives or friends. But with the current sports gear that you have, you want to make sure that you are storing them properly. Here is a list of the common sports gear you’ll find in the garage:
  1. Bike
  2. Skiing and Snowboarding gear
  3. Baseball Bat
  4. Badminton or Tennis Racquets
  5. Golf clubs and Balls
  6. Ball for Volleyball, Basketball, Football
  7. Dumbbells, bars, plates, kettlebell
  8. Swimming fins
  9. Oxygen tank for scuba divers
  10. Wall Ball
  11. Surf board
  12. Kayak boat
  13. Fishing rods
  14. Fencing sword
  15. Bow and arrow
  16. Hula hoop
  17. Skateboard
  18. Roller skates
  19. Boxing gloves and punching bag
  20. Helmet
  21. Floaters
  22. Ping pong table, ball, table tennis racket
We’re sure that we probably missed out something because you can pretty much store any athletic gear in your garage as long as you have the space for it.
