  • A table tennis table (left) on sale at Pan Emirates in Al Barsha for Dh395 and a skateboard on sale for Dh59 at Sun & Sands Sports Factory Outlet.

Today we look at items that let you exercise your muscles while having fun.

Ping pong

Of all places, I found the table tennis table (above, left) on sale at Pan Emirates in Al Barsha. It was on the third floor, sitting next to other furniture on sale with 50 per cent off the price tag. Think you could master your backspin on this table? Price sliced to Dh395 (that’s 43 per cent off the original price).

Quick wheels

Right across the street at the bargain gem called the Sun & Sands Sports Factory Outlet, there are further reductions on items already on sale. I saw some cool skateboards (above, right) for Dh59 (was Dh105).

And if you’re looking for something faster, they may not have sports cars, but they do have mountain bikes. I found this Addy 3.0 offroad beauty (below) with 27 gears and sturdy shock absorbers packed in an aluminium 2 body (which I’m told is lighter than the normal aluminium) for Dh1,999 (was Dh3,295).

Air hockey

If you’re looking for something tame, check out Toys ‘R’ Us, which is offering up to 50 per cent off selected toys and sporting goods. The offer extends to apparel, strollers, infant toys and baby products. The Stats Air Hockey table is on sale for Dh75 (was Dh149).
