While the tennis season might be over, the gift-giving season is in full-swing! Whether you’re shopping for a casual player or a die-hard fan, we’ve got you covered with our 2018 Holiday Gift Guide!

1. Tickets to see tennis live: Rogers Cup Toronto or Coupe Rogers Montreal

Live tennis – there’s really nothing quite like it! No sport gets you closer to the action or the players than tennis.

Give the gift of Rogers Cup in 2019! After all, what’s a better present than tickets to see the world’s top talent at the premier Canadian tennis event of the year? The best men in the world will be competing in Montreal, while the top female players travel to Toronto.

2. Tennis Canada x FILA official merchandise

Gear up for another exciting tennis season with a piece from our co-branded Tennis Canada x FILA collection! Head to Tennis Canada’s online store for your chance to shop this exclusive product.


3. These hilarious custom tennis ball socks

Alright, these socks might be for the hardcore tennis fan — but who DOESN’T have one of those in their family?

This sock company is full of fresh designs and can take any face (even your own!) and plaster it on a retro tennis player before a backdrop of luscious tennis balls. Hard to think of anyone, tennis fan or not, who wouldn’t want these 😂

5. Stuff their stocking… with tennis balls!

6. The great tennis books of our time

  • Unstoppable: My Life So Far by Maria Sharapova
  • Open by Andre Agassi
  • Winning Ugly by Brad Gilbert
  • The Greatest Tennis Matches of All Time by Steve Flink
  • Unbreakable by Jelena Dokic
