Sports Equipment Storage Ideas Using Pegboard

Sports equipment gets messy. It's bulky and no one wants to bother with putting things away after a hard day of play. We want to make it easy for you to store and organize your equipment so that when you're ready to play it's all there waiting for you. No lost baseball gloves. No searching through bins in the garage or tripping over gear all over the floor. Just easy access and easy cleanup.

Here are some ways to use Wall Control Pegboard for all types of Sports and Outdoors Gear so you can stay on the go! There are so many ways to use Wall Control and we hope you get some great ideas here and that you get creative to come up with your own solutions too!


Medium Hooks are great to hang gloves and other little items.  And shoulder pads... it's almost like the 6in shelf guards were made for them!

With football helmets, we've found that U-hooks or Medium Hooks work great. You can use one but two will give you more stability.

Medium Hooks (10-HM-002)
3in U-Hook (10-UH-003)

We love the Extended Reach Hook as storage for tape and pre-wrap. Making it easy to grab and go!


Get ready to hit the dirt! Shelvescurve tip hooks, and long hooks are all good options for glove storage.

Maybe our favorite use of a handle holder is for bat storage!

Much like the football helmets one or two U-Hooks or Medium Hooks work great for baseball and softball helmets too! If you don't have a faceguard to hang from, flip the helmet over and use a Long Hook or Extended Reach Hook.

1x1in C-Bracket (10-CB-011)
3in U-Hooks (10-UH-003)

And you've gotta have your tape and shades because the little things win games! Store tape using extended reach hooks and for the sunglasses, our C-brackets work great! We have several different sizes of c-brackets but here we're using our smallest, the 1in x 1in.

Lacrosse and Tennis: 

Wall Control is a great option for lacrosse or hockey pads to store them away and let them air out at the same time because pads stink! Handle holders are also great for lacrosse sticks and tennis rackets. They come in 2 different sizes, 1-1/4in and 2in, both of which will typically work for these items.

Our awesome customer Dory uses an assortment
of hooks for lacrosse gear storage.

Store bikes with heavy-duty hooks and helmets using U-Hooks, Medium Hooks or any other one that will work for you! Add more hooks for bike locks, air pumps, tires, tools, and any other gadgets you might have.

Water Sports: 

Wall Control is great for water activity storage because it allows items to hang and air out and the pegboards will not rust or corrode due to water thanks to its galvanized and powder-coated finish! An assortment of long, medium, and short hooks, shelves, U-hooks, and Extended reach hooks are being used for these water sport and beach set ups.


Outdoor gear is fun and easy to store and organize with Wall Control!
For climbing gear we love U-hooks for ropes and harnesses. Extended reach hooks, long hooks, and curve tip hooks are great for cams and quickdraws. For helmets and bags we like medium hooks and U-Hooks. Shoes, chalk bags and other small items can be stored using medium hooks or any number of our other hook types. Get some inspo from these pics!
