What is it about watching Wimbledon every year that turns me into a tennis freak and has me itching to get back on the court as soon as I see that lush green grass proclaiming that I could probably beat Serena Williams if only I could get on centre court?!!!
I used to play tennis at school and wasn't too bad but I cannot serve at all, at least I am honest about that. Then, when I met my husband we played tennis pretty regularly as a fun form of exercise. The first time we ever played I beat him and I still remind him of that to this day!!
Just recently we have got back into playing tennis which is great as its a brilliant form of exercise. My baby boy is now old enough to be left with Grandparents for a few hours and I am not feeding him myself anymore so my boobs are mine again and are not painful anymore when I do sport. Our old tennis rackets were a bit worn out so my husband and I bought new tennis rackets to play with.
I don't know much about what makes a good tennis racket or not but I know that Roger Federer probably does. Roger, it's fair to say is a pretty good tennis player (she says, laughing out loud), he's probably the greatest player of our time so if he puts his name to a range of tennis rackets then he must demand quite good quality from them. I have been pleased so far with the performance I have received from this tennis racket. The handle is nice and easy to grip, I feel like the weight of the tennis racket is perfect for the strength I have in my wrists and arms and after a few months of use now I have not had to replace any strings and they are still very taut and strike the ball with a nice ping sound when I make good contact.
The tennis racket has an alloy frame which I think is what makes it light and easy to swing. Even though I can't serve I can lift this racket over my head and at least attempt to serve. The racket looks nice too so at least I can look good on court, even if my ground strokes do not look good. The racket is red and black and has a red W for Wilson printed across the strings on the head.
The racket comes with a wipe clean cover that you just slot over the head of the racket and then it zip closes which keeps the racket protected when not in use. What I like is that this cover has a strap attached to it so you can sling it over your shoulder in order to carry it.
The racket cost just £20 which I think is a great price for a well made racket but not too much money if you ever end up not playing tennis after those two glorious Wimbledon weeks. Even though this racket will not turn me into Maria Sharapova it's still a great fun sporting investment.
