So you told your kids to go play outside
and it turns out they like it. A lot. If team sports are making up more and more of your weekly schedule, Groupon can help you shore up all the necessary athletic gear without breaking the bank.
On the Field
Some of our favourite sports are the simplest: all you need is a ball, a field, and plenty of sunshine. That's all the sports equipment it takes to play soccer or touch football
. For real football, however, you'll want to make sure you're wearing a helmet, pads, and a mouth guard.
On the Court
It's always good to keep an inflated basketball on-hand in case a spontaneous driveway pickup game breaks out between you and your neighbours. If you prefer playing on another type of court, however, you'll find everything you need to play tennis
on Groupon, including new racquets, balls, and pleated mini-skirts.
On the Diamond Baseball
is America's pastime and it's not hard to understand why. Just about any age and fitness level can participate in a friendly game together. However, you'll still need a proper glove even if you're just playing catch. And don't forget a bat, a ball, a few bases, and an inflatable Vin Scully to call the game.
On the Ice
The most popular team sport played on the ice, hockey is also one of the most intensive in terms of athletic gear needed. Luckily, you'll find regular deals on sticks, pucks, nets, skates, and beyond for the budding NHL stars in your house.
At the Beach
Most people think of the beach as a relaxing vacation destination, but it's also a great place to exercise via a variety of sports. But first, you'll need some new sporting goods, like a volleyball to pass around or swimming gear
and toys for the kids.
