Racquets - A tennis racquet is one of the most important necessities in a tennis game. Racquets come in many different sizes depending on the size of you. I am 12 and use a 25 inch racquet. Parts of a racquet are the neck, the head, the handle, and the face which is were you hit the ball.
Balls - Balls are very simple and cheap piece of equipment but important. Balls come in solid and multi colors. I suggest using a multi colored ball to get the correct spin on your shots.
Grips - Overgrips come in many colors and sizes. Overgrips just give you a better grip on the racquet. They are cushiony tapes to go over the racquet handle. Many overgrips come in the same color as your racquet.
Outfits - Tennis outfits for men, women, girls, and boys are sold in many colors and brands. The internet has a wide variety of companies that sell these products. Many players choose to play in a simple shorts and a tee shirt. Always wear sneakers. I suggest bringing a visor and wristbands out on the court with you in the bright sun.
Racquet strings - Racquet strings come in two types. The manufacturer of your racquet sell strings to fit and match your racquet type.
Additional Information - Always bring a water bottle or beverage on the court with you.
