Choosing your Tennis Gear and Outfit
There is a certain consideration when choosing your tennis apparel. You need to be comfortable while playing and be able to move freely. Depending on the weather and location that you are playing, you may need to make small changes in the way you are choosing your clothes. If the weather is hot, it will be a good idea to choose lighter colors that reflect heat instead of the dark colors that absorb it. So it is also wise to choose a light-colored cap made of a material that will protect you from the sun, but enable your body to cool down.
Unless you are training or playing at Winchester Tennis Arena or any other indoor tennis courts, it is advisable to wear something to protect your eyes from the sun and prevent prolonged sun exposure of your skin. Wearing a cap, visor or headband would be helpful for sun protection of your eyes, head and face. Headband are also great for preventing sweat from getting into your eyes.
The primary concerns for any tennis player are the ability to move freely and keeping cool throughout the match. We would suggest avoiding 100 percent cotton T-shirts, as they retain sweat and can stick to the body. Tennis shirts now are made mostly from synthetic fabrics, which offer the comfort of the cotton without becoming wet and heavy with sweat. These new technologies, including Sergio Tacchini’s UV-Proof and Quick-Dry T-shirts, enhance movement and have a lighter feel.
Some women may choose to wear tank top instead of T-shirts. Whether you choose one of these options or a specially designed tennis dress, the key factors are comfort, practicality and freedom of movement.
When picking what you want to wear to the court, it is important that you match your shorts with your shirt. This is proper tennis etiquette and could make you look more stylish, if done right. We would not recommend that you wear long pants for your tennis game. Tennis shorts are definitely a good investment because they are made to wick away perspiration and support heavy movement during a match.
Many of the times, we see people wearing their regular running shoes to play tennis, but there are many good reasons that you should wear proper tennis shoes when playing tennis. Running shoes are specially designed for the forward movement that comes from running or walking for fitness. While tennis shoes provide for multi-directional movement, especially lateral (side-to-side) movement. You may want to refer to our article specifically for tennis shoes here.
Socks should also be chosen carefully as well, because running and turning around may cause blisters. Good fitting of socks can prevent your feet from sliding in your shoes.
It is ideal to wear a wristband on the arm that you hold your racquet to prevent against the impact or shock when making contact with the ball. It can also helps to stops sweat running down your arm, ensuring that you have the best possible grip on your racquet.
