With only 26 days remaining until Christmas, we thought it may help if we pin pointed a few ideas for the special sporty person in your life. The obvious gift we should suggest would be to buy a ball for the sport they play. We do sell hundreds of single balls for rugby, football, cricket, netball, basketball, volleyball...but, we also have a number of products that won't break the bank and are idea gifts for Christmas. For the cricketer ideal for bowlers of any age and ability. The Aero cricket stump target is perfect for the bowler to practice their skill and to improve their consistency with line and length. It sits on top of a single stump or the off stump if bowling to a set of stumps and gives the bowler a target to aim at. The ideal line to bowl would be to get the ball to be on or around top of off stump, ensuring batsmen had to play each delivery. With the Aero Cricket Stump Target, you can see how accurate your bowling is. Hard wearing and priced @ £16.99, makes it a great stocking filler. For the footballer The Mitre Ultimax Football is one of the best Pro match footballs around but sadly is being fazed out. We have managed to get hold of the final 80 balls and are offering this exceptional ball @ only £36.99. It is available in size 5 and is available whilst stocks last. The Ultimax ball arrives deflated so remember to order a pump if you plan to inflate for the big day. For the Tennis Player we have spoken to our tennis players in the office and they all said they would like more tennis balls for Christmas. So, why not buy a dozen balls for your budding Andy Murray or if your budget can stretch to it buy a box of 18 tins (6 dozen balls). We have many different types of ball in stock with the most popular being the Slazenger Winbledon Tennis ball. This ball is still used in the Wimbledon championships and is our biggest selling ball, priced @ £3.99 for one tin and £71.28 for a box of 18 tins. For the Table Tennis Player we have a large number of table tennis balls available including training and 3 star balls but by far the most popular at this time of year and a great stocking filler is the 6 pack of multi-coloured Dunlop Nitro Glo Table Tennis balls @ only £2.49 for 6. The pack contains 6 balls - 2 yellow, 2 blue and 2 pink. For the Hockey player or coach, our club has found these Kookaburra Pitchboards invaluable this season and at only £13.99 this is the perfect gift for most hockey players. Contains a board, marker and wipe in it's own drawstring bag. And finally for the sportsman/woman that has everything? The most common story told after Christmas is we ate and drank too much and need to regain fitness. Gyms are often filled to bursting point in January and February so why not get an Agility kit so they can work out in the garden or local park at their own leisure? Just a few ideas that will hopefully help when looking for the perfect gift for any sporty friend or relative.
