Get caught up in Murray Mania!

Wimbledon is very much in full swing at the moment. The strawberries and cream have been flowing, the weather has largely been favourable and (at the time of writing at least), Britain still has a player to cheer for!

Wimbledon fortnight rarely fails to get Britain into tennis, especially when the weather is as glorious as it was at the weekend, and tennis courts across the country will be fully booked at least part of the summer – depending on how well Mr Murray does of course.

If you are one of the thousands of people who have been inspired to pick up a racket over the last week, then having the right equipment to get going is essential.

But if you have been put off by the size of the huge kit bags that the players have been lugging out on to Centre Court, don’t worry! You can get started in tennis without that much equipment and expense.

After all, everybody has to start somewhere so why not start out in the safest pair of hands possible with the Roger Federer starter kit?

Endorsed by the record breaking 16-Grand Slam title winner, this starter kit contains everything that you need to get going on court.

In the bag you’ll find a lightweight 25 titanium racket, two pressureless tennis balls and a sports water bottle – everything that you’ll need to get started on a local tennis court.

For the ladies, Serena and Venus Williams have a similar offering, with the racket coming in a fetching white and pink colour scheme.

If you aren’t lucky enough to live within easy distance of a tennis court, or if your local courts are all booked up due to ‘Murray Mania’, then don’t worry. You can create a court wherever you are!

These Wilson EZ Tennis Court Lines are perfect if you want to have an impromptu rally with a friend, allowing you to create a tennis court wherever you are.

With four corners and 12 straight lines, it is easy to map out your own playing area and the high-viz finish will ensure that there is no debate whether a ball was ‘out’ or not!

New balls please? Well, it’s always useful to keep some spare balls handy in case of a few “wayward” shots. These Slazenger Wimbledon Ultra Vis Tennis Balls with Hydroguard are the same balls used on the hallowed turf of the All England Club, so you know that you are playing with possibly the best balls in the business.

Finally, you’re going to need something to carry all of this equipment in and this Wilson Advantage Pro Bag offers fantastic value. It is more than big enough to carry all of your equipment to the court and back again and, at £24.99, it comes in at a “smashing” price.
