Tennis Clothes and Rackets for Beginners | Sports and Exercise

Posted on: March 13, 2013

When learning to play tennis, only the basic equipment needs to be purchased. You can purchase a complete outfit made by any major manufacturer of sporting goods. These include Nike, Adidas, Prince, Wilson, Head, and there still many more out there selling good products. Players can move on to more expensive styles in racquets and clothes after their tennis training has been completed or when you start to play some of the local tennis leagues. The salesmen at a sports equipment outlet will be a good guide to make sure they have everything they need.

 

Tennis apparel is athletic wear, so function is key. You’ll be running much of the time when you play tennis, so choose shorts or warm up pants that won’t bunch up and limit your mobility. Running shorts might be a good choice if you aren’t buying tennis-specific apparel. Make sure your clothing is snug around your waist. If it’s too tight, you’ll have problems when you turn your core on serves and groundstrokes. If it’s too lose, it might start slipping when you run and jump.

Take time to go out and shop around for your outfit. If you do not have a lot of spare time or you hate to think about spending time at the mall on your day off, look on the internet. Online stores are great source for those who are looking for new tennis clothes.

Playing tennis is all about sudden starts and stops, as well as moving quickly from side to side. The trouble is that, during extreme stopping, cornering, and pivoting, if the sneaker’s outsole is too rigid, the tennis player loses contact with the playing surface, which results in a loss of footing. That is why you need proper pair of tennis shoes. Nike, Adidas, Sergio Tacchini or Lacoste are market best sellers these days.

What about tennis rackets? Choosing racket is most important thing in tennis world. When it comes to buying one you can consult your tennis coach or tennis racket expert for advice on the brand of racket that is most likely to fit specific requirements. Testing out different brands is the best way to find the right match. Popular brands are Babolat, Dunlop, Fischer, Avery, Gamma, Head, Prince, Volkl and Wilson. Length and racket weight are the most important when choosing.

Most tennis rackets weigh between 8.5 and 12.5 ounces. In general, lighter rackets are easier to swing. The standard tennis racket length is 27 inches. While the rules of tennis allow rackets to measure up to 32 inches, most tennis rackets measure from 27 to 28 inches. Because the grip is the tennis player’s link between the tennis racket and player body, grip comfort is of great importance. Grips typically range from 4 inches to 4 7/8 inches in circumference. Most adult tennis players use grips between 4 1/4 inches and 4 5/8 inches.
