If you're a serious player, you should bring these items to the court.
By Dana Sullivan
1. KELTY FRIDGE-ATOTE
Looking to celebrate after a league win? Pack soda, beer and food in this free-standing cooler. It has an insulated main compartment and two smaller external pockets. And it’s waterproof to keep melted ice from leaking.
2. PRO-TEC ICE-UP PORTABLE ICE MASSAGER
A portable ice pack comes in handy in case of emergency. But icing sore muscles immediately after play also helps speed recovery. The Pro-Tec is reusable and comes with an insulated carrying cooler that keeps ice frozen for up to 10 hours.
3. ADIDAS GRAND SLAM VISOR
This lightweight visor has anti-glare lining under the curved brim to prevent reflection off the court.
$16 for women’s (shown here), $18 for men’s; adidas.com
4. SKINCEUTICALS SPORT DEFENSE SUNSCREEN
Made with transparent zinc oxide, this SPF 45 sun block won’t make you look like a ghost. It’s also PABA-, oil- and fragrance-free, which is ideal for people with sensitive skin.
$37 for 3 ounces, skinceuticals.com
5. ALL TERRAIN RECOVERY RUB
Soothe sore muscles with this cooling salve. It’s made with arnica, a natural anti-inflammatory, shea butter and olive oil. Bonus: It’s not greasy and doesn’t have a strong smell like Ben-Gay.
$10 for 3 ounces, allterrainco.com
6. BIOSKIN ELBOW BAND
If elbow pain puts a damper on your game, try this adjustable, breathable band. Though research suggests forearm support bands prevent pain but don’t reduce muscle fatigue, many tennis-elbow sufferers swear by them.
7. OAKLEY FLAKJACKET SUNGLASSES
Keeping your eyes on the ball is easier with sunglasses that cut glare and don’t obscure your view. The Flak Jacket frames are semi-rimless and can be customized with interchangeable lenses. Choose between standard or XLJ (curved) lenses and a variety of tints. You can also get Transition lenses that adjust to different light conditions.
$145–$220, $50–$100 for additional lenses; oakley.com
8. TERRASOLES BEYOND FLIP-FLOPS
After you play, let your feet air-dry in these flip-flops. The bumps on the foot bed treat you to a mini-massage, and an antimicrobial treatment prevents bacteria from invading your feet.
$40 for women’s (shown here), $50 for men’s; terrasoles.com
9. THORLO EXPERIA SOCKS
Sweaty feet are prone to blisters. Protect your wheels with these socks. They’re cushioned under the ball and heel of the foot, while the mesh polyester fabric helps with breathability.
