Does your father play tennis, watch tennis, read about tennis, and dream about tennis? Get out! Us too! With him, and other tennis-obsessed dads in mind, we put together a list of gifts that we think are the perfect fit for Father’s Day. (Or any day, really!)
1. bollé Sunglasses, Copperhead
Spending summer days on-court requires appropriate on-court protection! Especially protection from UVA and UVB rays. A sight for sport eyes, these ultra-hip shades feature lenses that not only offer 100% UVA and UVB protection, they are coated with anti-fog and anti-smudge treatments. Also crafted for comfort, they boast small thermogrip temple and nose pads to prevent slipping when things get sweaty.
2. QLIPP Tennis Sensor
Help your dad take his game to the next level with this incredibly slick tennis performance sensor. This little gadget records your swings and movements, and feeds the data from your racquet to your smartphone. Warning: Be prepared to spend countless hours talking about the increased speed, spin, and spot accuracy of his forehand.
3. Babolat VS Original Overgrip, Pack of 12
One thing all serious tennis players agree on is the beauty and importance of a really great overgrip during the summer months. Designed to absorb moisture and sweat, and made from super thin materials for a pure feel, this 12-pack is a tennis bag must.
4. Hydro Flask 16oz True Pint
Everyone deserves an ice cold beverage after a long match. This Hydro Flask True Pint Glass is the perfect addition to a gym bag featuring TempShield Double Wall Vacuum Insulation to maintain the beverage’s temperature. The best part? After every match your dad will thank you for the cold one.
5. Tennis Magazine Subscription
Make a trip to the mailbox a little more exciting by gifting your old man a magazine subscription to Tennis. Featuring pro advice, recaps on epic match-ups and in-depth interviews, he’ll love it almost as much as he loves you.
Would your dad love a serve like Milos Raonic? Of course he would. But if he can’t quite close the gap on the kilometres per hour, he can at least rep Raonic on court by sporting similar gear from New Balance.
7. Rogers Cup Tickets: Montreal | Toronto
Tickets to Rogers Cup are officially on sale, and what more could a dad ask for then some quality time with, um, you! One better, if you want to see today’s biggest ATP stars in Toronto, you can act fast and take advantage of our Father’s Day Offer that includes a long list of VIP-treatment upgrades by using the promo code FATHERSDAY16 (while quantities last).
