Sports Equipment Vocabulary

Average: 3 (22 votes)

I’m not a very sporty person, but since I moved to London I’ve been going to the gym almost every day. My gym is quite big and so as well as using the exercise machines, customers can also play a variety of sports. Below, I have written a list of exercise equipment. All you need to do is match each thing to its description below.
