My name is Courtney, I am a San Diego native and a lover of all sports; a varsity soccer player on my high school team and a charger fan for life. Now on to something extremely important to me; tennis. Although I am not an expert at the game, I love the sport. Sports are not only great for physical health but challenge the mind as well. On the soccer field you have to be tricky, although not always the quickest, I could tackle the ball away from any opponent. Football requires pure force from the defense and great mental ability from the quarterback to place the ball right where he wants it under extreme pressure. Tennis is a game that depends on agility, speed, intelligence and finding that “sweet spot.” Nothing is more satisfying than swinging that racquet and hitting the ball with the perfect amount of power that you know will make your competitor’s head spin; all in good sportsmanship of course. As I said earlier, tennis is a game that requires intuition, skill, agility and speed. Any activities that you choose to participate in, you need the right tools. Tennis is no different; the game depends upon having the right equipment to ensure that the player is performing to best of their ability. Racquets, shoes, bags, string, grips, accessories and gear are all key elements to the game. Here, I will tell you all you need to know about these components; the best racquet for you, how to choose the right pair of shoes, the bags that will protect your racquet and much more.
