Treat the tennis fan in your life to a tennis-themed gift she'll delight in receiving. Whether she's a current tennis player, just started taking lessons or simply likes to watch the matches, you can find the perfect tennis gift with a little research.


Treat your special tennis fan to lessons with a tennis pro at the local country club. She'll learn proper technique and improve her game by learning from a professional. Or get her tickets to an important tennis event, such as the French Open or Wimbledon. If you can't swing a trip that far, get tickets to your state's high school tennis championship; she'll still get to see high-quality tennis from very skilled players. If she wants to get into better shape for her game, get her a few sessions with a personal trainer who can design a personalised tennis player's regimen.

Tennis Gear

Properly outfitting a tennis player is very expensive, so check with your tennis fan to see what equipment he needs. Buy him a new racket or have his current one restrung to improve its performance. Give his tennis wardrobe a small makeover; a couple of new tennis shorts and shirts can give him new confidence on the court. You could also get him a tennis ball saver; it pressurises balls even after they've been used so they keep their bounce longer. Or buy him a new tennis bag to keep all his gear. Personalise it by having his initials monogrammed.

Accessories and Decor

Many tennis fans would love an elegant tennis bracelet or a charm bracelet featuring tennis balls and rackets. You could also try tennis ball earrings. For the home, consider a tennis ball table lamp or tennis ball patio lights. For easy homemade tennis gifts, cut a hole in four old tennis balls and use them for sofa gliders, or cut and flatten a tennis ball and glue it to ceramic to make a coaster. You could also purchase tennis art for your tennis fan; buy a portrait of her favourite player or commission a portrait of her in full tennis garb.

Other Gifts

Buy him an instructional tennis book or DVD; he can use it during downtime to help improve his game. If you have a large budget, consider a portable tennis ball machine for practice anytime, anywhere. For small budgets, consider a tennis gift basket. Fill a gift basket with a tube of tennis balls, a sports towel, tennis visors, new socks, tack and a gift card to his favourite tennis outfitter.
