How can I improve my balance? [+]

I was playing 5-a-side football last night and managed to fall flat on my arse whilst simply running with the ball. I'm 6'2 tall and overall I'd say that my balance is pretty poor - I'm sure I'd fail one of those walk-along-the-straight-line-Sir drunk tests that the Police give protagonists in bad comedies. Are there any simple exercises that can improve my balance and stability? I'd rather not have to buy any equipment, or join Yoga or Martial Arts classes (I'm already a gym member and really don't have the time for both).
