Continuing sports modernization has resulted in a surplus of perfectly good used equipment, as well as annoying midgame cleat-software updates that require players to manually restart. Return to simpler sporting days with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of new and gently used sporting goods at Play It Again Sports. Choose between locations in Guelph or Kitchener.
Play It Again Sports' knowledgeable staff piles its shelves with a bevy of new and used sports gear from top brands including Bauer, Vaughn, Easton, and Reebok. Fingers curl around the grip of a Dunlop DDH sand wedge ($24.99) ready to propel golf balls and stuck golf carts out of bunkers, and athletes stuff their equipment and socks into a CCM duffle bag ($24.99). Skilled staff members restore dull skates' ability to cut through the ice during five regular skate sharpens ($20), and an Under Armour heat gear T-shirt ($24.99) aims to keep torsos sweat-free. Like an overeager suitor, new inventory shows up every day, and both stores invite patrons to trade in their used sports equipment.
