Tennis is a very complex and equipment-based sport, and as that is the case, having the proper tennis equipment can lead to success, while purchasing an improper tennis set will inevitably lead to failure. Here's how to buy the best equipment to prepare you for a game or practice.
The first and most important factor of course is the racket itself. There are many types of rackets available, all of which have a different feel, weight, head size, etc. The best strategy for choosing a racket is to go to your nearest tennis shop, and demo many available rackets to find which seem to be the best fit for you. It is also necessary to pick out some nice strings, which once again all depends on personal preference, so experimentation is necessary.
Now that you have purchased the most important part of your tennis set, it is time to purchase appropriate tennis clothing. You'll want clothes that are easy to move in and look good on the court as well. Chances are that you'll be sweating profusely, so keep sweat absorption in mind as well.
The next important factor for your tennis set is the shoes. Shoes play a very important role in a tennis match. If you have improper shoes, not only could you potentially damage the court, but you are likely to have some serious movement issues on the court, as in tennis you must change directions rapidly, and tennis shoes with good traction make that possible. To fill this shoeless hole in your tennis set, you may also just purchase some tennis shoes from the local tennis shop. As a general rule, the more expensive and more brand name shoes, the better quality they are. So be prepared to fork out some extra dough to complete this part of your tennis set.
And last but not least, consider the various tennis accessories available that can make your game more comfortable and enjoyable. Tennis accessories may include wristbands, a visor, and a bag to store all of these items in and your rackets, and many times a set of sunglasses.
With these tips, you should now be ready to construct a solid tennis set adjusted to your own tennis needs, so good luck and happy hitting!
