Basketballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, etc. - how are you going to store all of these? Here are some of the options.
As Barry Izsak points out in his book Organize Your Garage . . . In No Time, the first decision is whether to store all the balls together, or store all the equipment from one sport together.
If you choose to store all the balls together, Barry notes you can use a garbage pail, milk crate, or laundry basket. But there are also a number of products designed specifically for ball storage.
1. The Children's Factory has a ball trolley designed for all sorts of playground balls.
2. There are many choices when it comes to basic ball racks. (Yes, the ball trolley looks a lot like the ball rack.)
3. Rubbermaid makes a vertical ball rack.
4. Ball cages or ball lockers provide lockable storage.
5. Some storage options are designed to be rolled around - as with this Reach the Beach Wonder Wheeler.
6. And some options are meant specifically for wall mounting, such as the Ball Claw, where each claw holds a single ball. There are four versions - for footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, and volleyballs.
7. When you buy an upscale system from GarageTek, individual ball holders are also an option. These holders come in small, medium, and large sizes.
8. Another wall-mounted option comes from Racor.
9. And there are a number of multi-purpose sports equipment organizers which include ball storage, such as the Sports Station from Rubbermaid.
10. Wall-mounted sports racks (including ball storage) are also available.
