TOP TENNIS Customer Lockdown PURCHASES 

–  TENNIS RACKETS

BABOLAT PURE DRIVE reason is that across the range, they are nice and easy to play with.  Forgiving, but with reasonable power and control.   The soft grommit that runs around the racket, called the Woofer System, gives more deflection across the string bed that allows longer ball dwell – this creates more spin on the ball.   Men choose the 300g frame, women the 270g, and youngsters the lite version.

WILSON CLASH.  The range with the most soft, forgiving frame with a big sweet spot – this power zone generates momentum.   Arm and user friendly.  Particularly good for people coming back to the sport

– TENNIS BALLS .  

BABOLAT TEAM.   Customers have been purchasing new balls and then clearly naming with initials them so that they can avoid sharing others….We recommend these tennis balls based on good value, and durability

DUNLOP ATP ball is popular, particularly with players on hard courts, but more expensive…….

–  TENNIS GLOVES.  

OPTIMUM GLOVES.   Protection not just from the weather, but a barrier against infection and discourage you from touching your face.  These comfortable gloves still allow a good feel and grip on the racket.

– TENNIS SHOES

WILSON RUSH PRO 3.   Everyone loved this shoe from the moment they tried it on.   Comfort, just the right level of support without being overly heavy, and durability.

ASICS SOLUTION SPEED FF 2.    The best looking shoe according to many of our male customers..  and despite its price it was very popular with those who wanted the latest, and best professional level performance footwear .

– TENNIS BAGS.

YONEX PRO RACKET BAGS .  Keeping your kit away from others on court, was key last year, and especially as clubs removed seating, it made sure your belongings were away from the ground…  and somewhere to store your had sanitiser ! This range was have unique carrying handles that swivel so you can pick up and carry from any angle in any way you like, which was the unique selling point for why customers liked this luggage the most.
