1 Mitre Cub Rugby ball


Stay ahead of the pack with Mitre’s four-panel rubber rugby ball, which is covered with a deep pimple emboss to improve catching and handling, even when wet.

2 Discraft Ultra-Star


The Ultra-Star has been the first choice for Frisbee fans since its creation in 1981, and the disc hasn’t changed since. At 175g it is slightly heavier than most Frisbees, and it’s designed to maintain a stable trajectory in even the windiest conditions, making it perfect for seaside action.

3 England Beach Soccer ball


With England failing to make the 2008 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup after a 6-0 mauling by Ukraine and a 2-2 draw with mighty Estonia in qualifying, there’s never been a better time to represent the Three Lions and visit the world’s best beaches. Get practising with the official hand-stitched synthetic leather ball.

4 Mikasa VLS200 Beach Champ Volleyball


This hand-stitched volleyball, the official ball of the Beijing Olympics, is made from high-performance composite leather for durability and excellent feel and control. The yellow, blue and white colours also ensure great visibility against sun, sand and sea.

5 Gray-Nicolls Beach Cricket Set


If you waited all winter to showcase your googlies on the beach, then you’ll need this retro-style plastic cricket set, which includes a funky blue bat, yellow ball and standalone stumps, complete with bails. The whole lot fits in a holdall and weighs just 1.9kg in total.

6 Mitre Fast Fold goal


This 6ft by 3ft frame is easily carried and can be assembled in minutes, so your icebox need not become an impromptu post. It's also sturdy enough to withstand crossbar rebounds and blustering gales.
