I finally got tired of the unorganized pile of sports equipment in the garage. No matter how many times we cleaned up the gear it always seemed to turn into a disorganized pile within days. I started to build without a plan and the project evolved into what you see here. I added casters to the bottom so it can be moved around easily. I have also added another ball tray on the side not shown in the pictures to take care of additional gear.

Organized sports! Are you trying to buck the trend. Nice job.

Great idea and nicely built!

Having the same problem I have to say “good luck with that”. I went from rubbermaid tubs too a rack to wall hung shelves. I found all these worked really well with one shared basic flaw: it is apparantly physically impossible for my kids to return an item to the same exact spot after use. They just cant!

Makes me feel good to see you have shared the joy with your little one. The idea of using the pvc tubes to control the long handles and equipment is a good one. Thanks.
