Now that I’ve spotted some old wooden tennis racquets, they seem to be popping up everywhere. Some commenters have told me that they’ve seen wooden racquets in their local thrift shops!
I stopped by a thrift shop, affectionately known as “Saks North Avenue” this morning, en route to a tag sale. I just checked the huge hamper that houses discarded sporting equipment and found a whole trove of old wooden racquets.I found Chris Evert and JC Higgins (1908-1964)and Björn Borg. And you can see the price on this lovely 1900’s vintage wooden racquet… a whopping $2.90!
