Practice Hobbies At Home With Foam

For people trying to advance or improve in their hobbies, the biggest roadblock is often carving out the time to practice. This is particularly an issue with sporting hobbies that demand a substantial amount of dedicated space to play. With sports like baseball, golf, and hockey, the garage or driveway isn’t going to provide a space where you can safely or smartly practice.

3LB memory foam, four inches thick, is adequate padding for absorbing the force of line drives and pitching machine tosses when installed in a secure batting area. Mounted against a wall with a protective fabric covering, memory foam absorbs impact instantly without the “bounce back” of non-visco-elastic materials, safely deadening energy. Whether placed at the front or back of a cage or netted area, the foam can handle hits and pitches valiantly. This foam system works great for hockey as well, giving you the ability to trace out a goal outline on the covering of a foam pad, with excess foam around the goal protecting against any misses.

For golfers, driving ranges are great for practicing your long game, but require the time and effort to get to one, and in some cases, a membership fee as well. To practice your swing in your own home or yard, 1-1/2-inch thick neoprene can absorb the force of a drive when loosely hung, with enough fabric-like flexibility to allow it to billow and flap when not mounted against a surface. With foam padding, you can get in your practice, whenever you like without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
