Many children today exercise their hands by texting, playing video games or emailing friends. When they show interest in any sport, it makes their parents smile. However, the cost of outfitting any new sport venture can be prohibitive. Enter Play It Again Sports.
For over 25 years, Play It Again Sports has provided new and used sports gear for any number of sports, recycling before it became fashionable.
Bill Phillips, owner of the Play It Again Sports store at 11137 Los Alamitos Blvd. in Los Alamitos, is a sports advocate who works closely with area sporting groups, listening to their particular needs and striving to supply those needs. “We offer team and league discounts,” Phillips says. “Lacrosse is one sport that is gaining popularity, and we have a full assortment of new equipment in stock, and we’re known for our huge assortment of baseball and softball, disc golf, soccer, surf boards and most any sport imagineable.”
Built on the premise that once a child (or adult) moves on to a new sport, outgrows an item or upgrades current equipment, Play It Again Sports will purchase quality used gear to resell, extending its usable life. Usually relegated to a box in the garage, old sports items can gather dust. Play It Again Sports gives it new life, and cash or trade for its owner.
Trade those baseball bats and gloves for a snowboard, or football items for soccer gear. Play It Again Sports will also purchase your items or offer them for sale on consignment.
“We are always looking for treadmills, weights, bicycles, baseball bats and most any gear in good condition,” says Phillips. However, Play It Again Sports also sells new equipment from most major sporting goods companies.
Weights, fitness, skateboards, sports medicine, outerwear and other sports are well represented. A good assortment of whatever you need is available at Play It Again Sports. And they have a service department where baseball gloves are repaired and snowboards tuned. Call Phillips or any of his knowledgeable staff at 562.799.8244 or visit their website PlayItAgainSportsLosAlamitos.com for more information.
“If you bring an item to trade, any new item will be less expensive in comparison to our competition,” says Phillips. “Mention this article and we’ll pay the taxes on any purchase.”
Dig out those old baseball bats, and let someone else play it again.
