5 Ways to Celebrate the Joy of Tennis

Discover your tennis love in the time of a global pandemic.

 

Tennis love in the time of a global pandemic is real.

There’s no getting around it, this past year has been a doozy. While each of us has felt the impact of the global pandemic to varying degrees, it’s pretty safe to say that we’ve all had to make sacrifices in this new era of masking up and social distancing.

That being said, one place where more and more people are turning to find joy is the tennis court. Not only are avid tennis players continuing to enjoy the game they love, albeit with a few new rules and precautions, but a whole new group of people has discovered (or rediscovered) a love of tennis. And we think that’s pretty awesome!

As a bunch of tennis lovers ourselves, we wanted to share 5 ways we’re celebrating the joy of tennis with all of you!

 

1. WILSON x BRITTO

Possibly the most colorful set of tennis rackets out there, these sticks are the perfect example of what happens when tennis and art collide. Renowned artist Romero Britto brought his unique style and infectious love and joy to life on Wilson Clash 100, Clash 100L, Clash 26, and Ultra 100 tennis racket models. We dare you to pick up one of these rackets and not smile!

 

2. PLAY TENNIS SAFELY

One reason so many people have discovered a love for tennis is that it’s a Covid-friendly activity! With just a few precautions it’s possible to get out, be social and stay active on the tennis court. Just make sure you’re prepared with some fresh tennis balls, a clean overgrip, and a couple of sweat-catching wrist and headbands!

 

3. GO CUSTOM

Nothing shows your love for the game like a racket that’s 100% your own. Customize your favorite Wilson tennis racket frame with colors that are meaningful to you, adding a little personality to your game. Dreaming of a majestic all-gold Pro Staff? How about a spunky neon pink Ultra? A dangerous black, glossy Blade? A Clash that celebrates your school colors? We got you.

 

4. LEARN FROM THE BEST

If you marvel at the effortless ability that pro players seem to exhibit on the court, then check out the mini-tutorials that several of them recorded with us. Get inspired and learn the secrets behind Roger Federer's one-handed backhand, David Goffin’s tips for perfecting your footwork, and the power behind Kyle Edmund’s forehand.

 

5. DO YOUR PART

Next time you pack your tennis bag, throw in a sleeve or two of Wilson Triniti tennis balls. The first high-performance, eco-friendly tennis ball out there, Triniti was engineered with a special felt and core that not only allows it to come in plastic-free, 100% recyclable packaging, but also retains its fresh ball feel up to 4 times longer than the average tennis ball, meaning one sleeve will last you a while. Better for the environment, and on your wallet – that’s really something to celebrate!
