Specialised definition of the noun equipment

Glossary of sports

collective term for sport clothing and sport equipment. In competitive sport the rules of the individual sport disciplines contain precise regulations regarding the respective equipment (e.g. material, circumference, and weight of balls, maximal sole height of shoes in the high jump, form of the helmet in downhill skiing). In the more informal mass sport the equipment used depends on the specific requirements of the sport; on the other hand, personal taste and certain fashion trends have had an increasing influence on the selected equipment. The undenied interrelation between sport and economy becomes especially apparent here and the sport equipment industry has become an important economic factor (sport equipment). (Herbert Haag & Gerald Haag. 2003. Dictionary. Sport, Physical Education, Sport Science. Kiel, Institut für Sport und Sportwissenschaften)
