Laser Tag the team sport for all ages

Laser Tag is an all weather, all ages, all levels, non-contact sport gaining popularity in Australia. Sometimes referred to as laser force, the game is played all over the world with a massive following.

What is Laser Tag?

Evolving from a Star Trek toy phaser released in 1984 to the professional equipment we see today the game often includes role play, combat and tactical aspects.

Each player is issued a hand held phaser and a computerised vest. The aim is to zap opponents, base stations and specific targets within a playing maze to score points. The indoor maze or playing area is darkened and contains obstacles to negotiate or hide behind.

Laser tag played outdoors is called laser skirmish and usually involves a larger playing area.

Laser Tag Team Uniforms

We have recently started producing team laser tag uniforms. We were impressed with the design ideas the laser tag teams created for their clothing. We have put together a video to showcase these great laser tag jerseys.

If your laser tag team would like to have professionally designed and manufactured uniform give us a call on 07 3205 7454 or complete our contact form.

How to choose the best sports shoe for you

We have all suffered the effects of bad fitting or inappropriate shoes at some stage of our lives. Blisters, black toenails, aching feet, joint pain and tendonitis are just a few problems which can occur from wearing the wrong shoes.

So how do you know the which are the right shoes for your sport? Shoe stores often label shoes as ‘running’, ‘tennis’ or ‘football’ shoes but this does not mean one style suits all. There are many aspects to consider when investing the big bucks on a new pair of sports shoes.

Know your feet

Knowing your feet and your gait (the way you walk) is the first step in finding the best shoes for you. Many professional sports shoe stores will examine your gait with the use of specialised equipment. Width, length, arch shape and the tendency to turn or roll your foot inwards or outwards are all factors which will determine which shoe fits best. An experienced shoe fitter or podiatrist can advise you on the best type of shoe for your needs.

Remember to have your feet measured and analysed each time you buy shoes as age, weight loss or gain and injuries can change the size of your foot or the way you walk.

Know your sport

Different sports demand different movements and unique pressures on your feet and body. Running, for instance, requires good cushioning and arch support to minimise impact to your joints and encourage your foot to move with out turning inward or outward. Netball and basketball, which have lots of side to side movement, stopping and starting requires a shoe with more stability support to prevent ankle injuries and added grip to avoid slipping.

Higher price doesn’t always equal a better shoe

Studies of sports shoes have shown that going to the top of the price range doesn’t always convert to a better shoe. Mid priced shoes ($150 to $200) proved to be comparable to the upper price range ($200+) in support, the only difference the high priced shoes was they may last slightly longer and increased mid-sole cushioning.

Shop around, do the research and try on different styles and brands. Don’t be swayed by looks as the funky looking pair may not fit as well as the boring coloured pair. Anyway, if you are playing hard enough no one will be looking at your shoes (a great team uniform on the other hand, will have everyone looking).

What makes a great tournament fishing shirt?

We have just started to venture into designing and manufacturing fishing shirts for the huge Australian fishing community. Wow, what an enthusiastic group they are.

What makes a great fishing shirt?

Sun safe custom fishing shirts

Sounds like a no brainer, wearing a shirt is sun safe, yes? No. Not all fabrics are the same when it comes to sun protection. We use a Sports Mesh fabric for our fishing shirts which is specifically designed for high performance sports wear and provides a great level of sun protection.

Keep cool under pressure

The nature of the sport means long periods in the hot Australian sun. Our Sports Mesh fabric is breathable and has great wicking properties (it draws moisture and sweat away from the skin) to keep you cool when the fishing heats up.

Fishing shirts that stand out from the crowd

Putting your fishing team sponsor logo on your shirt not only keeps them happy it means your shirt is one of a kind. You can also add your design, colours and team name on to personalise your fishing shirt even more.

Custom tournament fishing shirts

Here are two examples of custom shirts which we made for a roller derby team and laser tag team just to show how far you can go with design if you have a great imagination.

Get ready for your next fishing tournament with a fishing shirt from Game Clothing. Australian made, quality guaranteed. Contact us today for a quote.

Game Clothing is moving!

Well we must be doing something right!!!

We have been growing our sports uniforms manufacturing business consistently for many years now and this will be our second move in the last few years. This time we are moving to premises that we hope will give us further room for growth in the future.

We are currently in the process of fitting the new premises out ready for the big move on the 5th and 6th of August. This involves partitioning the office area, building a clean, air conditioned area for our 3 sublimation printers and getting electrical wiring ready for the 2 sublimation presses, 2 embroidery machines and of course the many sewing machines.

Here are some pictures of the premises before the big move:

The new premises are at 1/14 Hinkler Court, Brendale. We are still in the same street, just in a different complex.

The importance of warm up exercises

Correct warm up exercises can decrease muscle tension, reduce injury risk and increase player performance by increasing blood flow to the muscles. An essential element in the pre-game or pre-training routine, warming up for 10 to 15 minutes can mean the difference between losing players out injured and playing with a full side.

Warm up also has other benefits for your team such as settling nerves and psychologically preparing the players for the game ahead. Pre-game is an important time for team morale, encouraging positive energy between players and casually discussing the game ahead can prime the team for the coming match. This mental preparation helps to clear the mind, increase focus and build concentration.

Benefits of a good warm up:

  • Enhanced range of joint motion
  • Elevated body temperature – improves muscle elasticity, reducing strains
  • Facilitates a rise in muscle temperature – allowing muscles to contract hard and relax fast increasing speed and strength
  • Prepares the body for the specific types of movements related to your sport
  • Raises heart rate and breathing in readiness for the game
  • Primes your nerve to muscle pathways to be ready for exercise
  • Reduces incidence of injury during the game

As we have mentioned in a previous blog (Stretching – Should we be doing it?) static stretching is not the best way to prepare your body for exercise. Starting with a gentle sports related exercise, walk or light jog is a better way to begin your warm up as it gently increases your heart rate and breathing while increasing the temperature of your muscles.
