From bonkers to elite performers. Creativity has no boundaries and you wish these new technology sports equipment products were about when you were a few stones younger and dreamed about those golden cups. It may be too late for you to make the cut but perhaps you have some little dreamers around who will love these bonkers training products that just may take their performance to a new level.

In these strange times (i.e. Covid lockdowns), playing sports has been limited and many of us miss doing the things that we no longer can. These handpicked bonkers sports training inventions may bring some more joy back to our lives.

 

1. Goal in a huge net that stops and rebounds rubbish shots

Dedicated to all football lovers, big or small. When you shoot you just want to shoot and not going to fetch the ball all the time (especially when your skills level is not that high). This bonkers goal in the net will drastically reduce the number of trips to fetch the ball back from your neighbors garden as well as the number of broken windows. The big rebound area of the net means more shots, more action and more actual practicing time.

2. Crazy Golf Dinosaur Putting Mat

This mat is a slight upgrade from your usual novelty toilet golf mat. The fun shape and design will appear to the younger audience and just may make them fall in love with golf. The only way to make this crazy golf mat more bonkers would be to make the dinosaur spitting fire after every successful put. Oh, wait… that would have to be a dragon mat though. Or is it a dragon though?

3. Intelligent Tennis Ball Machine & Trainer

The depressing thing about tennis is no matter how good you get, you will never be as good as a wall. And even then, when you have enough of facing the wall, you may upgrade your tennis partner to this bad boy. It’s definitely a lot more intelligent and stylish than the wall but I’m not so sure that it’s as hard to beat though…

You can take this little engineering gem for a ride in your red Cadillac to the nearest tennis court and prove to everyone else that you are already living in the future where the bonkers training products are no longer bonkers.

4. Smart football + app for football training

Let’s get the basics straight – you don’t call it soccer. It’s football. And then you can call it smart or whatever else. This one is quite clever though as it comes with an app and a virtual trainer with loads of cool features. It will engage and motivate the trainers to improve their ball control and footwork skills. Just imagine how good Messi would become if he only had this little gadget as a kid.

This product seems to be very popular and sells rapidly after restocking. This company also offers a basketball version for those of you who wish to follow the Professor’s footsteps. Ah… this new technology sports equipment making it look so easy.

5. Goro style punching bag + Hit back punch bag

Spoiler alert: this scary-looking punch bad does not hit back. It would get a few more bonkers points if it had a few batteries and the on/off button. Then it would feel like fighting Goro from Mortal Kombat. How bonkers would that be? Nevertheless, it’s a high-quality, very well-made, professional piece of training equipment for all sorts of combat styles.

If you wish to feel a bit more adrenaline, check out an alternative that sorts of hits back.

Action and reaction. Just like stamping on a rake in a garden. Newton would be very proud.

These bonkers training products can really make a big difference and raise some future stars.

6. Track & Field Gate Timers

If you do it short and fast then this is the training product for you. Wait, what? No, seriously, these gate timers will measure all your times with 0.001 of a second accuracy and will send them to your smartphone or smartwatch. They work brilliantly for all running and racing activities.

I recall going with Bonkers Bob to a crap Gokarts track recently and there was no numerical evidence of how slow he was. He will still argue that my go-kart was faster, but then again he changed to a different vehicle halfway through and still saw me overlapping him. We need to gift the gate timers to that ancient race track and settle it once for all Bob.

If you are like me – surfing mad, this board will ease the pain of those flat summer days. It’s a very impressive piece of kit that will enhance your balance skills needed for surfing, skateboarding, skiing, snowboarding and other sports. You have to be a bit brave bonkers to buy and try this balance board. It should come in with life insurance as standard as there is a high chance of making TOP fails videos series when trying to master it.

This mighty guy will show you how it’s done.

You don’t have to watch Olympics or Ping Pong tournaments to know who dominates the world of table tennis – Chinese players. Have you ever wondered why they have such amazing table tennis skills? Looking at this Chinese made new generation table tennis trainer I wonder no more.

It is able to serve topspin, backspin, left-spin, right-spin, mixed spin, 9 Kinds of spinning balls with different frequencies and speeds. Pretty impressive, huh? It’s probably enough to win a few school ping pong tournaments. May even get one for me to teach Bonkers Bob a lesson or two.
