Sports Garage: Nooks at Work

A zone for each sport makes it easy (dare we say fun?) to put things away. The space between wall studs is a natural for rackets.

To buy: FastTrack vertical ball rack and fishing-pole holder, $20 each; multipurpose hook (holding tennis rackets), $9.50; mesh baskets, $21 each; and horizontal rails, from $10 each: rubbermaid.com.
