The first time you become interested in trying out the sport of tennis, it might be a better idea to borrow or rent tennis equipment before you buy it. Some tennis equipment can be very expensive, although there are more affordable options for beginners. If you do decide to spend some money, there are a few basic pieces of equipment that are necessary if you want to play a game at all.
The first piece of tennis equipment every player needs is a racquet. After all, if you do not have one of these, you would be playing handball instead. Choosing the right racquet is a rather personal matter because there are so many different types that are specifically tailored for power players, more maneuverability or those who want more accuracy in where the ball is going.
Beginners’ tennis equipment starts with a basic, multipurpose racquet that costs a moderate amount.
Of course, balls are necessary tennis equipment as well. These also come in multiple types, but it should be easy to find some for multiple types of play. Other types of equipment you might want to purchase include tennis shoes instead of standard sneakers, a racquet bag specifically tailored to hold it, handle tape so you can readjust the grip and even a fun tennis outfit to stay comfortable and cool on the court.
Although not specifically tennis equipment, a sports towel and water bottle will be much appreciated when you start this fun sport.
