Men’s 2XU Active Run singlet

Don’t let a hot day deter you from thrashing it out on court when you have a garment like this to keep you cool. Working almost as hard as you, it channels moisture from the inner to outer fabric layers to keep you as comfortable as possible.

2XU drink bottle

Choose from an array of colours and quench your thirst courtside with this well-designed drink bottle. A rubber stop helps prevent leaks and a flexible body helps you guzzle as fast as you need to, while a clear panel indicates when it’s time to fill up.

Babolat Pure Strike racquet

Developed for the base liner who hits the ball on the rise and plays mostly inside the court, this racquet provides more precision and power. The hybrid frame couples square and elliptic design, offering more responsiveness when impacting the ball and a carbon fiber construction improves stability.

Head Graphene Radical Pro racquet

For players accustomed to the Radical racquet, this latest offering from Head will be sure to mix it up. A higher weight boosts power while still allowing for good swing and stability around the court. Aggressive base liners after some grunt should take note.
