Active Kids

Activity toys are a great way to encourage children to take part in outdoor activities. As our society veers evermore towards a sedentary lifestyle, it becomes increasingly important to introduce children activities that will get our children up and about, incorporating much-needed exercise in their daily routine. 

There are many benefits, both mental and physical, to daily exercise. These include:

  • Improved physical condition: Regular participation in physical activities leads to increased strength, endurance and coordination. Playing outside is particularly important for babies, toddlers and preschoolers because it forms part of many developmental processes. Young children learn by means of sensory-motor stimulation and playing outside gives them the opportunity to practice and expand their basic physical skills.
  • Improved mood and reduced stress: In today’s fast-paced world even children are susceptible to stress. When you are engaged in physical exercise, your body releases neurotransmitters called endorphins, which reduce pain, relieve stress and give you a sense of general well-being. Further mood enhancing neurotransmitters released during exercise include serotonin and norepinephrine, both of which alleviate depression.
  • Maintaining a healthy weight: Childhood obesity is increasingly prevalent, especially in first world countries where food is plentiful. Daily moderate exercise ensures that children maintain a healthy weight, which is crucial in reducing their risk of contracting illnesses. A slimmer frame also reduces pressure on developing bones and joints.
  • A strong heart and lungs: Regular physical activity helps to develop lung capacity, which is directly linked to your body’s ability to utilise oxygen. The more efficient your heart and lungs, the easier blood travels through your body to your vital organs and the higher your energy levels.
  • These are just some of the benefits associated with daily physical activity. Why not invest in some kids’ sports equipment and encourage your youngsters to get outside? The fun activities for kids are endless - just have a look at our range of exciting sporting equipment and you will see how many ways there are of having fun outside. We stock everything from kits and juggling rings, to hula hoops and three-legged race ties, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries with regard to activity toys or schools’ fitness equipment.

Our comprehensive range of accessories and sports equipment means that we are the one stop shop for archers of all levels, from the complete novice to the seasoned competitor.

    Our most popular archery equipment includes:

  • Compound bows: This range includes both adult- and youth compound bows, available as individual bows or bow kits. These bows are suitable for the first time archer, as well as the advanced, and the design of the pulley system puts less strain on the archer’s hand, which accounts for its popularity.
  • Recurve bow sets: Recurve bow sets are a popular product with archers of all ages and represent a step up from entry-level leisure bow kits. It is widely used in target archery competitions and stocked in light-, medium- or strong draw, with a choice of left- and right handed alignment. We stock individual bows, as well as bow sets that contain a bow, bow stringer, arrows, finger tab, basic sight, armguard, carry case and instruction booklet. The accessories required for this kind of bow include bow strings, string wax and nocking points.
  • Leisure bow kits: Leisure bow kits are a very popular archery product for individuals of all ages. This basic bow set comes in three different sizes, namely 93 cm, 112 cm and 130 cm. It comes complete with a fiberglass bow, two arrows, an armguard, finger tab, quiver and target face.
  • Archery has grown and continues to evolve in Ireland among players of all ages, with two main areas of archery prevalent in Ireland, namely:

  • Target Archery. This sport involves participants standing in a line and shooting at an archery target. Both compound and recurve bows are used and the targets are nearly always coloured concentric circles. Within the course of a competition, the targets are moved forward to distances of 90, 70, 50 and 30 metres.
  • Field Archery. Field Archery normally takes place in woodland or on rough ground that may include slopes and hollows etc. Targets are placed on a circuit (called a course) in the surrounding area and competitors move from target to target in small groups. The basic equipment required includes a simple wooden flatbow and a back quiver of wooden arrows. Although nearly every type of bow can be used, many field archers use simpler equipment than target archers, shooting one piece wooden bows and traditional longbows.

    Darts

    No office recreation room, pub or home bar area is complete without a dart board and darts accessories. Darts is a game that can be enjoyed by a very wide demographic and also has the advantage of taking up a minimum of space (as apposed to a snooker table or table tennis table), which accounts for its worldwide popularity as both a sport and pastime.

    Playing darts is beneficial for a number of reasons, including:

  • It is a superb stress reliever: Modern day living is fraught with stressors, from work to family worries and everything in between. In order to manage this stress it is important to have an outlet, whether at home or at work. Darts offers a great way to take a break from your daily routine and provides a healthy competitive atmosphere for co-workers and family members to challenge each other in a structured environment.
  • It is a great team building platform: The ability to develop social and competitive relationships in the workplace is a necessary skill for any employee who takes their job seriously. Therefore, employers should take the time to create a social platform for their workforce to develop these skills. Although darts is not the only game that may be used to achieve this, it is a relatively inexpensive option that can be enjoyed onsite and with the minimum of fuss.
  • As a team-building exercise a game of darts can be used to address, amongst other things:

  • Decision making skills
  • Leadership skills
  • Conflict management skills
  • Objectivity
  • Inter-group contact and management skills
  • Strategising
  • Objective critical self analysis
  • Non-verbal communication
  • Furthermore, darts has been shown to positively influence concentration ability and spatial awareness, self-esteem, as well as improving general math skills! What more do you need to know?

    Hit Sport Folding Table Tennis Table | 9ft Image McSport Ireland

    Games Tables

    Snooker is fast becoming a growing leisure sport amongst both young and old. This exciting table sport is not only being played at pubs and bars but in homes across the world. Snooker is a cue sport that is played on a large table with pockets in each of the four corners, and one in each of the middle long side cushions. The game is played using a cue, one white cue ball, 15 red balls, and six balls of different colours: yellow, green, brown, blue, pink and black. One of the advantages of having your own snooker table at home is that you and your friends can play anytime you want.

    Some of the benefits of playing snooker include:

    • It is a great way to mingle with friends and family in the comfort of your home.
    • It encourages cheerful competition between members of both sexes.
    • The game increases your brain capacity, since it requires 89% mental acuity and 11% skill.
    • Playing snooker increases your hand-eye coordination, focus and concentration.

    Snooker was believed to have been invented in India, but it is popular in English speaking countries and it has become a mainstream sport in UK, Ireland and Commonwealth countries. There has been a steady growth of interest in game in Asian countries too.

    The object of the game is to score more points than your opponent by potting object balls in a predefined order. The magic of this game is that both children and adults can play and learn to become masterful with patience and practise.

    Did you know that the word snooker is actually slang for first-year cadets or inexperienced personnel (snookers). It seems that this sport hooked 18.5 million people in 1985, when Dennis Taylor played and beat Steve Davis after a momentous battle; Taylor won the game when he finally potted the last possible ball at midnight.

    McSport has sourced the most outstanding table for customers and it is well worth viewing. If you are looking for a fun brain twitching activity, a snooker table for sale is what you need.

    Gymnastic Mats

    Gymnastic Mats

    Gymnastics mats may be the last thing on your mind while you are busy training for tumbling, martial arts, aerobics or calisthenics, but the truth of the matter is that a good gym mat is an indispensable training aid that should not be ignored. It is very easy to assume that all gym floor mats have been created equal and that one is pretty much like the other, but there can actually be a world of difference.

    Here is what you should look for when you purchase a gymnastics mat:

    • High impact foam.Sports mats with high impact foam generally have better water-, bacteria- and mildew resistance, which is great if your mats spend a large amount of time in storage.
    • Thickness. Aerobic mats should be selected in terms of size and thickness. Determine beforehand which thickness you require and check with the store if they have it in stock.
    • Usage. Will the mat be used for general exercise and training or is it meant for landing events? In the case of the latter you will have to think about splurging for thicker foam that offers additional protection.
    • Double up. Do you exercise both at home and at the gym? Worried about the germs that that thrive in hot, sweaty environments? Why not invest in a personal exercise mat that you can roll up and take with you? This way you will never have to worry whether or not the person before you has taken the time to wipe down the mat.
    • Manageability. Mats at the larger end of the spectrum can be quite heavy and cumbersome to handle. Look for mats with carrying handles, zippers and mesh breather bars on the sides. If you have limited storage space you may also consider hook and loop fasteners which will enable you to hang it on the wall when not in use.

    Investing in gym mats for a home gym or school PT area can be quite a big expenditure, which is why you have to be sure to make the right decisions the first time around. If you feel at all unsure as to which product will best suit your particular needs and requirements, we recommend that you consult one of our friendly in-store sales assistants who will be able to help you select the perfect piece of fitness equipment.

    Gymnastics

    Gymnastics

    Looking for a fun way to get fit and master your body at the same time? Invest in some gymnastics equipment and let the fun begin! Although gymnastics is a very serious and competitive sport it can be enjoyed at home, at school or in the gym as an entertaining alternative to conventional aerobic exercise, as well as flexibility and strength training.

    Participating in gymnastics has a multitude of physical, cognitive and psychological benefits, which include:

    Physical:

  • A marked increase in muscle strength, as well as improved flexibility and endurance.
  • An improved ability to relax. Relaxation is often seen as the absence of stress, but in reality the human body, with some training, is able to shut itself to any external stressors that may still be present and induce a state of relaxation.
  • Improved body alignment when walking, standing and participating in physical activities. The benefits of correct body alignment are multiple and include greater awareness of your body’s aches and pains, improved posture, as well as resistance to sprains and other muscular injuries.
  • Greater knowledge of how to protect your body from injury, which includes falling and rolling safely.
  • Overall increase in agility and coordination.
  • Cognitive:

  • Improved awareness of the body, its components and ailments.
  • Greater spatial awareness.
  • Greater awareness of the relationship of different body parts to one another, as well as the relationship between the body and gymnastic accessories and apparatus.
  • Psychological:

  • The inherent joy of movement mastery.
  • Improved discipline and self control.
  • Improved self image and a positive attitude.
  • Furthermore, gymnastics can be enjoyed by a wide demographic, including children and the elderly. You can join a class, get a book or an instructional DVD or simply learn the fundamentals from a friend and go from there. Whichever way you choose to enjoy gymnastics you are sure to reap the benefits. Here at McSport, we have done the legwork for you in sourcing only the very best gymnastics mats, benches, bridges, wedges and more. All you have to do is browse, select and purchase!

    First-Play Zoftskin Handball Image McSport Ireland

    Handball

    Thinking of getting into Olympic handball? Excellent choice! Playing handball is a great way of getting your body fit and keeping it healthy by means of a fast-paced exercise regime. Aside from being a fun, sociable activity that requires the bare minimum of equipment, handball also has the potential to improve your levels of agility, flexibility, as well as your overall cardiovascular health.

    In the rapid-flowing game of handball the basic aim is to throw the ball into your opponent’s goal as frequently as possible during two thirty-minute stretches. Players work together by passing and dribbling the ball up the court to score a goal. Since the game is very fast-paced a great number of shots are taken and a score of more than twenty points to a side is not an uncommon occurrence.

    Although men’s handball already debuted at the 1936 Games that was hosted in Berlin, the indoor game was first introduced in Munich in 1972; while women’s handball first made its appearance at the Olympics hosted by Montreal in 1976.

    The main skills required to be a successful handball participant include strength, speed and agility. The sport has been compared to a cross between soccer and basketball even though participants (apart from the goalkeeper on either side) are not allowed to kick the ball or manoeuvre it with their feet in any way. The health and fitness benefits of participating in handball are numerous and include:

  • Defined arm muscles and increased upper body strength.
  • Increased agility of the hands and feet, as well as improve hand-eye coordination.
  • More acute mental focus and improved self-confidence.
  • All the benefits associated with a cardiovascular workout that feeds oxygen to the muscles by means of the blood stream.
  • Now you can buy all your handball equipment (including handball gloves) from McSport fitness and sports retailer. Simply browse our extensive selection of quality merchandise, click and purchase!

    ** Please note that handball as referred to here is normally termed ‘Olympic Handball’ in order to distinguish it from the informal game that involves hitting a small ball by hand in a walled court.**

    Hockey

    Hockey

    McSport now stocks a wide range of hockey equipment, including hockey sticks and helmets.

    Hockey has been played for centuries and cannot be said to have one single point of origin, since hitting a ball with a curved stick seems to have been a popular pursuit the world over for quite some time now. A game similar to field hockey (a term that is used to distinguish the game in countries that also practise ice- and street hockey) has been found depicted in 4000-year-old Egyptian drawings, as well as in Greek manuscripts and the Mongolian oral tradition. The modern game and its rules are said to have evolved from a winter sport that Middlesex cricket clubs played to keep fit during the rainy season.

    Today hockey is played all over the world by both men and women on surfaces as varied as gravel, grass, sand and artificial turf. Some of the countries that are particularly involved at an international level include Europe, Asia, Australia and South Africa. The sport is governed by the International Hockey Federation, which is made up of 116 members.

    Playing hockey has a variety of physiological- and psychological benefits, especially for school children. These include:

  • Improved cardiovascular health and fitness. Hockey is a fast-paced sport that requires players to have a high level of cardiovascular fitness if they are to play competitively. Improved hand-eye coordination. Any game that is played with a stick and a ball improves coordination, but bring forward motion into the equation and you can understand why hockey players are found to have superb levels of hand-eye coordination.
  • Improved self-confidence. Playing a sport and playing it well provides an amazing boost to one’s self-confidence. This is particularly helpful for young children (and even adults) who battle to connect with other individuals on a personal level. When you get on a playing field you have to work together in order to win the game and this camaraderie is a fantastic way to improve interpersonal communication skills and improve self-confidence.
  • These are just some of the benefits associated with participation in a team sport like hockey. Are you looking to invest in some quality hockey equipment? We have done the legwork for you in sourcing everything from bibs to hockey helmets. All you have to do is browse and select our wide range of sports equipment.

    Storage Equipment

    Schools, gymnasiums and private sporting facilities often have a problem with sports equipment storage. Many pieces of equipment are cumbersome and bulky, taking up a lot of space when not in use. Luckily, there are ways and means of organising a storage space that allows you to use the area efficiently.

    Your first step should be to evaluate the dimensions of the space you have available. Bear in mind that floor space is only one area that can be used - you still have plenty of space on the walls and even against the ceiling. Taking this into account, you should then proceed to systematically assign and arrange wall-, floor- and ceiling space.

    It is best to use:

  • Floor space for heavy, cumbersome objects that are used frequently. In this category we will include things like athletics mats. In order to keep these items tidy, and make it easier to move, you might think of investing in sports mat trolleys. Storage chests are handy for smaller, irregularly shaped objects like balls, field markers, etc.
  • Wall space for items that have to be within easy reach should hang. In this category we have things like jumping ropes, hula hoops, free weights, tennis rackets, etc. If you plan to invest in a storage unit, such as a ball cabinet, this could also take advantage of wall space.
  • Ceiling space is ideal for items that are used less often. Seasonal sports, such as rugby, are only played at certain times of the year and as such the training gear has to be stored for long periods of time. Ceiling space is ideal for something like this - with a few well-placed hooks and rails you can double your sports storage space in no time at all. 
  • Another handy way of organising your gear is to ensure that you arrange things in terms of category. Confine smaller items to a drawer system; or boxes and bins that sit on shelves. Drawers and bins should have clearly visible identification labels or numbers that correspond to a printed inventory.

    Have a look at our comprehensive range of  sports equipment storage solutions and organise your space today. We stock everything from wall brackets to skipping rope racks, drawstring storage bags and storage chests.

    Yoga Equipment

    Yoga has become a worldwide phenomenon and once you decide to join the revolution, you can get a yoga mat at McSport. Along with this vital yoga tool, we also offer a wide variety of accessories that you can use to get the most out of your training. Seen by many as a way to refresh mind, body and soul, yoga provides many positive results for those who have stuck to their routine.

    Better breathing and increased flexibility will naturally come over time when taking up yoga, but it is also a fantastic way to shed weight and boost your fitness levels. With the hectic lifestyles we lead today, you will also be pleased to know that yoga sessions will reduce stress levels and tension, while also assisting in improving your overall strength and balance. Although this is all on offer, you should be serious when you decide to take up this form of exercise, or any other for that matter, as breaking your routine and doing things incorrectly will spoil all of the effort you have put in and not give you the results you so desire. 

    To assist you in doing yoga correctly, here are some tips for when you are just starting out:

  • Get focused: Getting on your mat, closing your eyes and focusing on what you want to achieve during your session before you start will clear your head of the hectic day behind you.
  • Never be afraid of assistance: There is a lot of equipment on offer such as blocks or straps that can assist you while doing certain poses. Not everybody is advanced and many people are put off doing particular poses because of the difficulty, but blocks can give you the extra balance you need while straps can give you extra length and flexibility.
  • Inhale, exhale: Don’t forget to breathe properly during your routine. A lot of people will hold their breath during difficult moves, but this prevents the natural flow that you are trying to achieve.
  • Push your body: Don’t be afraid to push yourself during training. If you want to try more difficult poses, ask someone to spot you and go for it, alternatively you can slowly phase into it by using a wall for support.
