When you plan on stepping out to the court for first time ever, there are a lot of things that come to mind. Some of them are related to how you will play while the rest are related to how you will look. We can do nothing about the playing part because that is something that you will learn with time, but what we can do is, that we can tell you what you should wear while playing tennis to make sure that you look amazing on the court. So here goes nothing…
The right clothing for Men
Custom Head wear
Protection from the sun while playing tennis is quite important. A few people do not find it comfortable but headwear helps a lot when you are playing in sunny conditions. Go for a custom cap, custom hat, or a custom visor so that you are protected from the sun and can play properly and comfortably. Custom headwear is also great as not only does it make you look good, but it also prevents sweat and your hair from getting into your eyes.
Custom Tennis Shirt/Custom Tennis Jersey
A custom tennis shirt or a custom jersey is an item that is compulsory. With custom shirts and custom jerseys the options you have are simply endless. You can go for a smart polo, a cotton blend t-shirt, sleeveless t-shirts and performance wear polyester polos and shirts. Be sure to choose your clothing item according to the weather. For example a sleeveless would be perfect for summers while a t-shirt may be better in winters. Choose articles that are cool, lightweight and have moisture wicking properties to keep you clean, dry and fresh.
Custom Tennis Shorts
Custom tennis shorts are again an item which everyone should wear. We’ve seen people wear trousers while playing, but hey, let’s face it; trousers on a tennis court look stupid. Go for custom tennis shorts not only do they look good, but they offer full functionality as well. They wick moisture and allow you to run and stretch freely and comfortably.
Tennis shoes or trainers are a must wear item on the court. Rules state that one cannot step on the court without any shoes. When deciding on the shoes you need to keep in mind as to which court would you be playing at. If you are on a grass court, look for a shoe with good grip. For a clay court, look for durable sides as you’ll have to slide to stop your movements and change directions. And for a hard court, you can wear durable, regular running shoes.
The right clothing for Women
Just like men, women also require protection from the sun. Custom headwear helps a lot when you are playing in sunny conditions. Go for a custom cap, custom hat, or a custom visor so that you are protected from the sun and can play properly and comfortably. Custom headwear is especially great as not only does it make the wearer look good, but it also prevents sweat and hair from getting into the eyes and face.
Custom Tennis Shirt/Tank Top
Women while playing tennis either wear custom tennis shirt tank top along with custom tennis shorts/skirts or go for tennis dresses. This allows women to play freely without any hesitation and keep them cool. Along with tennis shirts/tank tops you should also go for matching sports bras so that you look good on the court plus you could play freely.
Tennis dresses have become the new fad, not only because they look good but also because they are very comfortable as well. Go for a nice lightweight tennis dress with moisture wicking properties so that you stay dry and comfortable while playing.
Many women choose to wear skirts and shorts instead of dresses when playing tennis because they give the players a lot of freedom to move while providing the necessary coverage. They also have pockets or a small pouch inside to help you carry the ball.
Like we told you earlier that shoes are a compulsion for anyone who wants to play tennis so it is a must have. Now women usually have a higher arch in their feet than men, which is why you should look for sneakers and tennis shoes that have ample support underneath. When deciding on the shoes you need to keep in mind as to which court would you be playing at. If you are on a grass court, look for a shoe with good grip. For a clay court, look for durable sides as you’ll have to slide to stop your movements and change directions. And for a hard court, you can wear durable, regular running.
