Things to Ask Before Purchasing Sports Equipment

Before purchasing sports equipment, it's always good to come up with a list of questions especially if you're new to the game. Every game needs specific apparel and gear to play correctly. In many cases, you'll know what you need because you're a fan of that game, but in some cases, you may need help. Here are questions to consider when purchasing these items.

  • Do you offer used items?
    There are items people don't want to purchase used, such as running shoes or cleats due to the risk of athlete's foot, but items like batting helmets, golf clubs and tennis rackets often cost 50 percent less when purchased used. Not every retailer sells used equipment, but it's beneficial to ask. Before purchasing second-hand items look at the quality and make sure there are no visible defects.

  • I saw a better price online or in another store. Do you offer price matching?
    Many stores will match prices if customers bring in a flyer from the competition. A consumer must have proof of the lower price in hand before a store will agree to discount apparel or gear.

  • What items are essential to this specific sport?
    In terms of baseball, the bats, baseball or softball and batting helmet are essential. For basketball, players need shoes with ankle support, hoops and the basketball. In golf, the clubs and carrying bag are the most important items. For tennis, people need to purchase balls and rackets. Hikers need quality hiking shoes and outdoor gear such as matches, warm apparel and a water bottle. Swimmers need goggles, swim cap and a bathing suit.

    Working at a sporting goods store can be a rich and rewarding experience. Sales representatives perform a number of important duties. For instance, they typically help customers pick out appropriate equipment. As an example, they may assist customers interested in purchasing the proper cleats for golf, baseball, or soccer. They may also help customers choose the best tennis, running or basketball shoes. In addition, retail representatives may help customers pick the best apparel and equipment for camping and other popular outdoor activities.

    Sales staff also regularly purchase used apparel and equipment from people interested in selling their old sports items. For instance, clerks may purchase golf clubs, tennis rackets, baseballs, basketballs and many other products. Individuals that sell items to sporting goods stores typically receive cash for their used items. However, stores also often give sellers the option to receive discounts on new products. These discounts can regularly be used to purchase items from a shop’s online store.

    People interested in working at sporting goods stores typically do not require prior experience, or special certifications. However, an avid interest in recreation and exercise is often preferred by stores. Many sales associates often play indoor and outdoor sports, such as swimming and soccer. Most importantly, employees must have a professional and courteous demeanor. In addition, they must be able to politely and clearly communicate with customers and help explain to them the various features included in their line of products. Overall, sporting goods stores and their employees provide a valuable service to individuals who enjoy sports and recreation.
