Tennis, once a sport of mainly the country club set, is, as of 2010, a sport that people from all walks of life play. Tennis courts are in public parks, neighbourhoods and private clubs. Tennis is a social game and lends itself to league and team play. When the tennis season is over, many players like to give a gift to a partner, teammate or team captain.
You can buy all sorts of costume jewellery for any woman tennis player or tennis fan. Tennis-themed bracelets, anklets, earrings, necklaces and rings make cute gifts. You can even buy tennis-themed navel jewellery. Some jewellery pieces have players on it, and others have tennis balls or sayings, such as "I Love Tennis."
If you need to hand out a large number of cheap tennis gifts, you might consider buying a tennis ball rubber key chain. As of 2010, you can buy one for less than £1.30. You can also find fancier key chains with engraved crystal for less than £3.
You can buy stationery, note pads or tennis ball sticky notes with a tennis theme. A tennis-themed pen makes a nice accompaniment to the stationery.
If you play tennis outside in the colder months, your gift recipient is likely to appreciate a polar fleece blanket with a tennis ball and tennis racket design. This can keep him warm while he watches the matches.
Most tennis players carry a towel in their tennis bag. A towel embroidered with a special message makes a practical gift.
No tennis player will turn down a can of balls. Stick a bow on top of the can, and you have a cheap tennis gift.
A pair of socks made for tennis is another practical and cheap gift that any tennis player can appreciate.
Not all tennis courts have a water cooler on the courts, so a tennis-themed beverage jug is a good gift choice.
If players want to make sure the net is regulation height before a match, they should keep a net checker or net measurer in their tennis bag. If you know the gift recipient doesn't already have one, this can make a good, cheap tennis gift.
In the summer, tennis matches can be unbearably hot. A tennis neck band with a cooling system that activates when you immerse it in water can keep players cool on the court. Tennis neck bands make inexpensive and much-appreciated gifts.
