Father's Day Gift Guide

Father’s day is coming up FAST but no worries – there’s still time to order that perfect present for your pops! Sure, you could get him a gift card and let him do the browsing by himself, that would work. But Tennis Express has some excellent gifts in all price ranges, so let’s see what kind of fun things we can find! For starters, you could get Dad some memorabilia for his man cave - like autographed rookie cards from Andy Roddick or Pete Sampras. Tennis Express also has goodies like vintage Sports Illustrated issues (how fun would it be to find one for the year he was born? Or the year you were born?). Our website has a vast collection of memorabilia to choose from, including mounted autographed balls from his favorite players!

If your dad is anything like mine, there are some things he could use that would make his life a lot more comfortable, but he’ll never buy them for himself. The Polar FA20F Watch is one such item, but sooo worth it. It’s the ultimate training tool to help Dad hit his targets when it comes to his health. I really like how it sends encouraging messages at checkpoints on the way to reaching goals – like Halfway there! Nice! Good job! Bonus feature: it gives a graphic representation of all his effective motion, so it really is NOT just a glorified pedometer. More quality of life gifts: Camelbak water bottles with filtration systems, adjustable hot/cold wraps for those aches and pains he tries to ignore, and top of the line braces like the ASO Ankle Stabilizer (why yes, that IS the one Andy Roddick wears!). It’s the ultimate protection against inversion injuries, the most common ankle issue for tennis players. The Liqui Towel by Tourna is a little slice of heaven here on Earth; the cooling chamois is a welcome reprieve from the hot summer sun. But if you’re looking for something to really pamper pops, flip flops with memory foam footbeds like the Nike Men’s Comfort Slide 2 are the way to go. Buy these for your father and his feet will thank you! Or spoil him with the new Oakley Holbrook designed by Shaun White to recall the Oakleys of yesteryear with today’s technology.

If you’re looking to spruce up his wardrobe, you cannot go wrong with the sophisticated style of Fred Perry. Dad will look so dapper, darling, in the clean lines of the Tailored Tennis Short with design details like an adjustable waistband, zip front, and hidden side pockets. The neutral white goes with everything he already has in his closet – this is fool proof dressing for Dad - but while you’re at it why not treat him to a Fred Perry tennis polo as well? The cut here is also classic, as are the color options. And I almost forgot – treat Pops to the Fred Perry Tennis Bag made entirely of PVC. It’s super comfortable to carry and the double zipper helps to keep him organized.

Lastly, if you’re looking to upgrade his gear, consider a new Babolat Racquet, like Rafa uses! Right now Tennis Express has a great deal going when you purchase a 2013 Racquet - $30 off new Babolat Propulse 3 shoes! The shoes are specially designed with the ExactPro system for substantial grip and outsole durability, and they also feature the Kompressor System for long lasting heel comfort. If Babolat isn’t his brand of choice, check out our weekly Racquet Reviews for other options! .
