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.

Soccer Ball | Football - Size 5
Scaled comparison drawings of the Soccer Ball (Football) Size 5 and other sports balls

Footballs (Soccer balls) are the primary piece of equipment for the game of football (soccer). come in a series of successive sizes. The underlying reason for the variety of different soccer ball sizes is for the smooth and safe development of young players as they grow in skill and age. Set by the football federations around the world, using smaller ball sizes for younger players reduces the risk that the ball would hurt them during play.

Matching the appropriate ball size to the age of the player is safer on a players body as they may injure their ligaments and tendons by kicking a larger ball before their body has matured. Compare the various sizes here to help determine which official football (soccer ball) size is right for you.

Size 5 Soccer Balls (Footballs) have a diameter of 8.6”-9” (22-23 cm) and circumference of 27”-28” (68-70 cm). The mass of a Size 5 Soccer Ball is between 14-16 oz (400-450 g) with a pressure between 8.5-15.6 psi (58.6-107.6 kPa).

Ping-Pong Ball | Table Tennis Ball
Size comparison diagram of the Ping-Pong Ball (Table Tennis Ball) compared to other similar sports balls

Table Tennis Balls (Ping pong balls) are spherical polymer balls fabricated specifically for the sport. Ping pong balls are colored as either white or orange depending on the table surface and game style. White balls are official tournament balls and pair well with blue or green tables, while orange balls are used for casual games as they are easier to see in most settings.

Table tennis balls are rated with a star system to denote quality—one star being the softest and easiest to break while three stars is the most durable and approved for tournament play. The official table ping pong ball has changed over the years from a composition of celluloid to polymer and from a size of 1.5” (38 mm) to 1.57” (40 mm).

Ping-Pong Balls, or Table Tennis Balls, have a diameter of 1.57” (40 mm) and circumference of 4.94” (125.6 mm). The mass of a Ping-Pong Ball is .095 oz (2.7 g).

Beer Pong Table - Large

Large Beer Pong Tables are wider than average tables used for playing beer pong. Typically designed and used in settings that don’t require the tables to be easily transportable, large beer pong tables are often found in personal homes, college fraternities and sororities, and bars. Because of the personal nature of these larger beer pong tables they are painted and customized by their owners.

Like official beer pong tables, large beer pong tables are 8’ (2.44 m) long and 27.5” (70 cm) tall with variable widths between 4’-5’ (1.2-1.5 m). The standard distance between the front two cups in a 10 cup game is roughly 65” (165 cm).

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).

Boxing Ropes
Side view detail elevation of the corner of a boxing ring measuring ring and rope heights and sizes

Boxing ropes are the perimeter guides and boundaries that gave shape to the competitive space of a boxing ring used for the sport of boxing. Attached to the four posts located at each corner of the boxing ring platform, the boxing rope border is made up of four individual parallel ropes pulled in tension from each turnbuckle. Additional rope spacers are distributed evenly around each side of the ring to prevent the ropes from slacking or spreading further apart if the tension lessens. Boxing ropes are commonly made with steel cables wrapped in soft padding and an outer vinyl sleeve that is available in a variety of colors and styles depending on the venue.

Boxing ring platforms are elevated 39.375” (100 cm) above the floor. The total height of the boxing ropes above the ring floor is 52.0” (132.1 cm) leading to an overall boxing ring height of 7’ 7.375” (232.1 cm). The bottom rope is spaced 16.0” (40.6 cm) from the ring floor with the other ropes spaced evenly at 12.0” (30.5 cm) from each other. Rope thicknesses range from 1”-1.625” (2.5-4 cm).
