WREXHAM, Wales - Dec. 19, 2017 - PRLog -- With the festive countdown less than a week away, Net World Sports has been analysing the most popular products its customers have been buying as perfect presents for sport-loving family and friends.

In the busy first full week of December, total orders made online with the retailer were more than double than posted in 2016, and while the firm's popular FORZA soccer goals and FORB golf products have posted strong sales, the item most Irish shoppers will be receiving from Santa's sack is its RapidFire rebound nets.

The multipurpose training accessory, which comes in single or double-sided versions, is ideal for catching hurling sliotars and footballs or practicing soccer shooting and goalkeeping skills, while it can also be used in cricket, rugby, netball or any other sport where unpredictable ricochets can improve hand-eye coordination.

This combination of versatility and simplicity, plus a similar hurling rebounder featuring on RTE's annual festive special 'The Late Late Toy Show' – the most-watched programme on Irish television this year – has seen shoppers order a staggering 6 times more RapidFires compared to the same period in 2016.

Other popular presents bought by sports-mad Irish shoppers include soccer goal target sheets and free-kick mannequins, suggesting come Christmas morning there will be plenty of wannabee Robbie Keanes and James McCleans out in the garden perfecting their shooting.

With many savvy shoppers seeking to sneak in an early bargain well before Santa's sleigh sets off, Net World Sports also tracked sales from the start of November, which would have included the busy Black Friday weekend.

Once again, the RapidFire rebounders came top of the league. The firm's premium soccer goals have also proved an essential festive signing, with year-on-year sales of its sturdy FORZA Steel42 junior soccer goal more than doubling, and its English Football Association (The FA) approved FORZA Alu60 and Alu110 aluminium goals up 28% on 2016.

Chris Owens, Communications Manager for Net World Sports, commented: "Christmas gift hunters across Ireland have well and truly bounced head over heels for our rebound nets. Whether it's for soccer strikers to improve their headers and volleys, groups of GAA players perfecting their catching and technique under the high ball, or all-round sporting stars to work on their reflexes and coordination, the demand for RapidFires in recent weeks has been nothing short of phenomenal. And the good news is there's still time for sports fans to order and receive their goodies in time for the big day."
