Sports Equipment

Sports equipment refers to the various gear and tools which are required for individuals or sporting teams to use when participating in a game. Sports equipment varies significantly between game types and can include balls, rackets, vehicles, footwear, and training attire that athletes and players use to make competitions more enjoyable and safe. Technology has also revolutionized sports equipment to include protective gear that can prevent injuries in a games—with some games prohibiting players from participating without the required equipment. Augmenting the required gear, wearables have also grown in usage in sports with athletes being able to measure and deliver performance data that can be monitored and improved upon to achieve peak athletic performance.

Ski Poles
Group of scaled illustrations of various sporting equipment compared to the Ski Pole

Ski Poles, also referred to as sticks or stocks, are used by skiers to balance and pull themselves while skiing. Ski Poles are used in Alpine Skiing, Freestyle Skiing, and Cross-Country Skiing, but are not used by ski jumpers. Ski Poles have a basket and grip elements. The basket is designed to stop the pole from sinking too deep into the snow and the grip slips over the wrist of the skier. The length and material of Ski Poles depend on the preferences of the skier. The different types of Ski Poles include Racing Poles, Super Giant Slalom Poles, and Nordic Walking Poles.

Ski Poles have a length of 44”-52” (110-130 cm) and pole diameter of .75” (19.1 mm). The mass of a Ski Pole is between 10.23-13.05 oz (290-370 g).

Ten-Pin Pin Deck
Scaled comparison drawings of the Ten-Pin Pin Deck and other bowling decks

The Ten-Pin Pin Deck in Ten-Pin Bowling is the spacing between each of the Ten-Pin Bowling Pins that creates their layout. The Ten-Pin Pin Spacing creates an equilateral triangle with 4 rows of Ten-Pin Pins and 4 Ten-Pin Pins on each side of the triangle. The Ten-Pin Pin that makes up the top of the equilateral triangle is referred to as the head pin. Ten-Pin Pin Spacing creates different pockets for the ball to go through. Each of the Ten-Pins has an individual number. Ten-Pin Pin Spacing is the same as Candlepin Pin Spacing. The Ten-Pin Pin Spacing is controlled by the United States Bowling Congress.

Ten-Pin Pin Decks have an overall width of 40.75” (103.5 cm) and depth of 35.875” (91.1 cm). The spacing between adjacent pins is 12" (30.48 cm).

Candlepin
Scaled comparison drawings of the Candlepin and other bowling pins

A Candlepin is the type of pin used in Candlepin Bowling and is the target at which the bowling ball is directed at during a game. The Candlepin was named after its candle-like appearance. A Candlepin has an almost cylindrical shape that slightly tapers at each end. Unlike other standard bowling pins, they are vertically symmetrical and can be placed on either of its ends. It is also taller than a standard Duckpin or Ten-Pin Bowling Pin.  A Candlepin is able to produce a billiard ball like sound when struck by a bowling ball. Typically, a Candlepin is almost the same weight as a Candlepin bowling ball.

Candlepins have an overall diameter of 2.9375” (74.6 mm); base diameter of 2.125” (54 mm)
, and height of 15.75” (40 cm). The mass of a Candlepin is regulated at 2.43 lb (1.1 kg).

Basketball Hoop & Backboard

In basketball, the basket is comprised of a hoop (net) attached to a flat backboard (vertical glass board). Regulation basketball hoops are suspended 10’ | 3.05 m from the playing surface and have a standard rim diameter of 18” | 46 cm. The vertical backboard surface is made of plexiglass or tempered glass to prevent shattering and is sized at 42” x 72” | 110 x 183 cm. Basketball rims are manufactured from high tensile carbon steel to provide the ball with the correct amount of bounce while also having give for players that can dunk.

Basketball Backboards
Drawing of a Regulation Basketball Backboard with dimensions for height and width

Basketball backboards are flat elevated vertical boards with mounted baskets, or rims, used to assist or return the basketball after a shot in a game of basketball. Commonly made of Plexiglas or tempered glass, backboards are designed to prevent shattering when a player dunks. Regulation basketball backboards have a width of 72” | 183 cm and a height of 42” | 110 cm with an inner rectangle that is 24” | 61 cm wide and 18” | 45.7 cm tall. For casual non-regulation courts, smaller Fan-Shaped Backboards are often used. Basketball rims are hung 10’ | 3.05 m above the court floor.

Fan-Shaped Backboard
Fan Shaped Basketball Backboards are non-regulation backboards that are typically found on casual courts at playgrounds or indoor side courts. Fan Shaped Backboards are smaller than Regulation Rectangular Backboards and have widths of 54” | 137.2 cm and heights of 33” | 83.8 cm.
