Getting Started in Tennis – Equipment
Starting something new is always fun and exciting, BUT if we go in not knowing anything beforehand, it can change our outlook on the activity. Tennis is a very independent sport. You are playing against an opponent on the other side of the net and your success hinges on your ability to hit the tennis ball over the net consistently and accurately. Of course physical and mental ability plays a big part; but so does equipment. The main reason for having the right equipment when learning tennis is injury prevention. Using improper racquets or shoes can lead to simple injuries like wrist/elbow pain and a sprained ankle to more serious injuries like tennis elbow, a slew of shoulder injuries, or planter fasciitis. With that in mind, let’s dive in to what you will need to get started playing tennis!
Low compression tennis balls are the BEST way to teach young kids the great game of tennis! Because the balls are two-toned, bounce lower, and travel through the air much slowly, it allows kids to follow the ball much EASILY. This makes it so that kids can achieve success more often, making it more FUN, and sticking with the game longer. They are also great for adults who are learning the game.
