Half-Hat, Half-Visor from Bang-Go Saves Your Bangs

So...you like visors but want more protection. But baseball caps give you hat head and screw up your bangs, which we know is unacceptable in tennis club social circles. What's a person to do? Easy, get a Bang-Go cap, which is half visor, half cap. Problem solved, right? I suppose, but do you really think you look better in this thing than with sweaty hat head?

Tennis Equipment Q & A - Should I add lead to my racket head?

Q. If I am a power swinger, should I be adding lead tape to the racket head?

A: Lead tape can add weight to the head of the racquet and thereby re-balance the racquet to suit the needs of the player. The added weight can give the racket more power to drive through the ball on each shot.

TennisRAQ Makes Holding Your Tennis Balls Easier and Better Looking

tennisraq.jpgWe can't remember exactly where we first learned of TennisRAQ, by BodyStyles, but it seemed like something we ought to cover.

Basically, its a neoprene belt that holds practice balls. You wear it around your waist while you play, and in the back there are three pockets to hold tennis balls.

It's sleek, slimming, extremely comfortable, you won't even realize you're wearing it during play, and it looks fantastic. With all of the great colors available, you'll definitely be able to find something that complements your favorite outfit.

tennisraq2.jpgHmmm...I think its a better option that the odd, plastic, single ball holder used by many lady club players. However, it seems to me that the TennisRAQ would be awfully hot. Also, while its better than some other ball-holding accessories, it still makes you look like you have a tumor sticking out of your back.

For holding tennis balls during play, we prefer (1) pockets if you're wearing shorts (if its good enough for the pros, its good enough for us, or (2) if you're a lady, tucking the extra ball into the elastic of your tennis panties (plus it is generally nicer for the men to watch).

They have a FAQ if you have further questions...I know I do...
