Continuing modernization in sports has resulted in a backlog of perfectly good used equipment, as well as annoying mid-game cleat-software updates that require players to manually restart. Return to simpler sporting days with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of new and gently used sporting goods and fitness equipment at Play It Again Sports in Chesterfield on Clarkson Road.
For more than 25 years, Play It Again Sports has armed kids and adults with high-end, wallet-friendly athletic gear. New inventory arrives every day, and the friendly staff can lead quality-seeking shoppers to spacious shelves lined in top brands including Callaway, Nike, and Adidas, outfitting them with all they need to swing, punt, and take flamboyant exception to referee calls with gusto. Baseball fans can swing in for a bat ($19.99+), a pair of batting gloves ($7.99–$99.99), or cleats ($9.99), and ice-slicers can get a jump on colder weather with a pair of hockey skates ($19.99–$99.99). An ever-changing stock allows parents to trade in young Olympians' garb for ever-larger sizes as needed, and multidisciplinary athletes can stock up on medicine balls, lacrosse sticks, and 25-pound weights so they're prepared to play whatever sports appear to them in dreams.

Play It Again Sports overhauls lockers with high-quality gear and rescues gently used athletic equipment from untimely retirement. Products from brands such as Bauer, Easton, and Wilson make up an all-star lineup across each store's shelves, which are replenished daily with goods for a wide selection of sports that ranges from baseball and hockey to golf and lacrosse. Treadmills and exercise bikes equip bodies with muscular suits of armor, and pintsize and adolescent equipment arms youngsters with protective padding until they eat enough bologna to grow muscles of their own. To ensure its stock remains robust, Play It Again Sports encourages athletes to collect their lightly used gear—including treadmills—and bring it into a local store to either sell or trade.
