It’s true you can play tennis is a lot of the apparel lululemon already has to offer. This prior notion is a good thing, as it speaks to the versatility and performance of lulu clothes across the board.
But for those looking to get a leg up in the competition, it pays to have tennis apparel specifically designed for the sport itself.
Think about how important tennis shoes are for playing compared to regular athletic sneakers. The same rings true for shorts, tops, and accessories.
New lululemon Tennis Gear Line
The new tennis pieces from lululemon include the Vented Tennis Short and the Vented Tennis Short Sleeve Shirt.
Vented Tennis Short
Vented Tennis Short is cut with a 6″ inseam that lets your legs breathe and keeps the short away from clipping your knees. They’ve got a relaxed fit and a 9″ liner that extends down to the top of the knee, which makes it so you have full compression of your quads and hamstrings—as opposed to only partial compression.
Lululemon opted for feathery fabric with perforations to keep the short as light as possible. They’ve got a breathable mesh waistband and a quick-drying technology built into the liner.
My favorite feature hands down though is the side entry pocket made to hold spare tennis balls—no more problems keeping the tennis balls in your pocket!
Vented Tennis Short Sleeve Shirt
Vented Tennis Shirt is made with a relaxed fit too so the player can easily make fast movements. The shirt is made with quick-drying technology and has UPF 40+ sun protection—a major plus for staying protected as those early morning summer games leak into noon.
Other features of the shirt include moisture-wicking and anti-odor tech.
Like the short, I also have a favorite feature of the shirt with its zippered chest opening. The incognito zipper can open the shirt up about a quart of the way down and allow for increased breathability.
