I wish I could do that.

Hey if you have like a "used sporting goods store" go there. We just got 2 really nice racquets for $60.00.

what do you mean? like lets you play with them? In that case no, I'm stuck with sporting good stores that just sell them. They have those rackets that aren't 'strung', and they cost a lot more than the regular ones. Its been a good amount of years since I played and I never got to serious with it so its all pretty new to me.

Re: Tennis Players?

you wouldnt being taking classes if you used to be real good... you just start playing again.

And there are no good tennis racquets for less than $100, as a matter of fact, there are no good tennis racquets period anymore. They just dont make it like they used to.

There isn't a particular brand you should stay away from, just play with whatever you're comfortable with. But if you want a solid racquet, you need to get one made 10-15years ago.

I just meant I played in a lot of 'tournaments' when I was a kid. Like I actually won a few, then I just quit playing and haven't touched it since. I was going to take soccer, but it was full, so I just went with tennis.

Anyway I actually found my brothers old racket/racquet so I'll probably use that, its pretty nice. I mean its a beginner class so I don't think it'll get to crazy competitive.

Re: Tennis Players?

wilson nano raquets are very popular now. they used to be really expensive, but they've somehow managed to make them more affordable. also prince O series raquets are pretty cool.

i don't play tennis, i just string raquets and get a shit load of those haha. also popular are head liquid metals, wilson triads, and i'm starting to see a lot of babulot come through

Re: Tennis Players?

yeah those racquets are popular, but they're pretty shitty.

I wish racquet manufacturers realize competitive tennis players enjoy traditionally made racquets. What wrong with good old graphite? Tired of these gimmick racquets

cool thanks, I'll have to go check those out. Does anyone know of a website to tell you what size you need for the handle? I think I'm a 4 1/2 but I'm not positive.

EDIT: Nevermind I found one, I was way off, lol
