Braving Friday night footy thanks to the warmth of Pocket Balls


Taking an innovative and creative approach to the humble heat pack, nationwide provider of hot therapy equipment, Take 5 Energize, has put a fresh new spin on an old school method of warmth with the invention of Pocket Balls; the latest in novelty sports ball heat packs.

Designed in Australia, Pocket Balls are reusable pocket-sized heat packs that are safe, waterproof and available in a variety of novel sport themes, including football/rugby, soccer, golf, cricket, tennis, basketball and the magic eight ball.

Perfect for an active runner or athlete right in the heart of the action, warming children up during a game of weekend sport or at home when cheering on teams to victory, these environmentally friendly heat packs provide instant heat anytime and anywhere, all with the simple click of the inner metal disk.

The big boys of the BZ household braved an AFL footy game on Friday night and I made sure to pack the pocket balls in their backpack to help them through a freezing cold Tassie night.

They were must appreciative of the warmth that's for sure!

Providing up to an hour of deep soothing heat, the new range is simple to use, stylish and the most effective method of pain relief for joints and muscles.

Pocket Balls can be used again and again once the heat pack has cooled, by simply placing it in boiling water until all crystals are liquefied, allowing it to cool and then reusing once more. 

Priced at $12.95 for a two-pack and available nationally, you can purchase Pocket Balls at all Coles Express convenience stores, Newspower, Spoilt: gifts and homewares, Drummond Golf, AFL Players Association, and online at
