Wood Tennis Racquets

I think that the wooden tennis racquets in the post below were used for this video, and that’s why they were charging such amazing prices.

I am going to take the challenge of an Anon. commenter and see how long it takes me to find a wooden tennis racquet at a local Goodwill. My bet is less than a week. Yours?

  1. I think I have several wood rackets in my basement and my Mother in-law has to have some. She has everything.

  2. I bought an old wooden tennis racquet, with its original press, no less, for two dollars at a tag sale on Nantucket this summer. I first learned to play tennis when all racquets were still made of wood, and I bought the one I did for the nostaligia of it, joining the wood squash racquet I still own from my college days. The only workout my squash racquet gets these days is for swatting bees when I am out gardening, a task for which it is most well-suited. Reggie

  3. Oh this reminds me Meg Nov 19th is World Toilet day. A(n) (t)issue one needs to wipe clean and agree that clean water and proper sanitation is important. As is good design in the W.C. any gear photos on lovely loos from across the pond.

  4. Court Tennis players still use (and require) wooden racquets. They look like slightly warped wooden squash racquets.

  5. Well done. Now you can sell it on OKL and buy Connor an awesome Christmas gift. Or replace the blinds he destroyed.
