Every Wimbledon towel sold is identical to those used by the players on court, so why not help your friend or loved one feel like a Grand Slam pro?

Roger Federer Life Size Cutout

Every amateur tennis player will have an idol, whether from the long, nostalgic history of the sport, or a modern pro battling it out on the tour today. Tennis fans have idolized players for decades, with celebrities like Bjorn Borg, Pete Sampras and Martina Navratilova all reaching pin-up status in their time.

However, the innovation for the modern age is that now your idols can be sent to you in the post – in life-size Roger Federer cutout form!

So why not give the perfect gift, and let your tennis player spend some time with their idol?

Perhaps it just looks like a mug to you, but tennis fans will really love this. This mug is full customizable so your imagination. Commemorate your loved one’s imaginary victory over Rafael Nadal, or create a lasting record of that friendly office match, and with this tongue-in-cheek gift.

These high-quality and durable dampers will kill any unwanted vibrations during your game while keeping your mind focused and calm. Each damper comes in a different color and features a different mantra such as, “Focus”, “You Got This” and “Move Your Feet”.

With so many tennis-lovers in the world, it’s not surprising that there’s a wealth of tennis-related equipment, gadgetry and novelty for all your gift-giving needs.

Tennis Gadgets

But what to do if you know a tennis player with all the latest equipment he could ever need? Well he may not know about some of the fun tennis gadgets being made today. You can buy everything from a Tennis Ball Dryer (because no one wants to play with damp tennis balls), to a portable tennis ball machine, helping players to practice their serve by firing out 150 tennis balls at them.

Adidas MiCoach Cell

Here’s the idea behind the Adidas MiCoach Cell: you take a little green sensor and clip it to the laces on your tennis shoes, synchronize it with the MiCoach app on your phone, and there you go.

MiCoach will track your rallies, your speed, the distance you run, the directions you run. All you need to do is check your phone afterward for a full roster of performance stats. What tennis player wouldn’t be tempted by that?

String Thing Tennis String Straightening Device

If you’ve ever watched a tennis match and wondered what the players are doing when they constantly look down at their rackets and pluck at the strings, I’ll tell you.

The players are straightening out the strings after the impact of the tennis ball onto the racket has knocked them out of alignment. Naturally enough, there’s also a gadget that can straighten those strings for you and that is the String Thing Tennis String Straightening Device.

Zepp 2 Tennis Swing Analyzer

Charge the Zepp Tennis Swing Analyzer, sync it to a phone via Bluetooth, attach it to a racket and then get swinging. That’s all a tennis player needs to do, and then when they check the App afterward they’ll be greeted by an amazing breakdown of stats. S

hot power, spin, the length of rallies – they’ll be amazed at what the Zepp Tennis Swing Analyzer can tell them. Even better, the app analyses the player’s swing and offers personalized tips, coaching and drills.

Tennis Ball Machine

If you have a friend that is really into their tennis and you don’t mind splashing out a bit on them, a tennis ball machine could be a great gift to help them get better at the game and practice without the need for a partner. Be warned they are quite expensive!

Tennis Gear

Why not begin with the basics? Tennis has come a long way since the age when rackets were made from wood. These days, having the right equipment can make all the difference to a player’s comfort and performance, so why not help your friend or loved one to get ahead?

Tennis Rackets

High-tech tennis rackets made from pro-grade, ultra-light nano carbons with motion sensors in the handle are no longer the preserve of the tennis elite. Brands like Babolat, Wilson, Völkl and Yonex have been working hard to make high-tech options affordable.

Something Like the Babolat Pure Drive is light and responsive enough for a pro to feel at home with it, and comes complete with sensors in the handle to help you track your performance. A gift like that should be enough to make most amateur players shout with excitement.

Tennis Shoes

A lot of people think that trainers are trainers and that a shoe that’s good for the gym will be just as good for the Tennis, but that really isn’t the case.

Tennis is a very specific sport that requires shoes tailored for sprinting and high impact movement (to absorb the shocks from all that jumping). Excellent grip and a well-cushioned heel are the features to look out for.

Buy your loved one some high-quality tennis shoes, like the Addidas Barricade Club, and their feet will love you forever.

Tennis Lessons

Lessons may not be “gear” precisely, but they’re the purchase most likely to help improve your loved one’s game. Once you’ve mastered the basics, real improvement in tennis tends to come from minor corrections in technique to one particular shot or another. That’s why almost any amateur player is going to be delighted by the opportunity to learn from an expert.

To make it even easier, many tennis clubs these days will offer gift vouchers for tennis lessons so that your giftee can book them for a convenient date and time.
