Where in the world did this school year go? I’m sure your kids are counting down the days left like mine are. Can you believe it is almost over?
It’s now time to prepare for the summer vacations and camps. The Tennis Shop at Ski Country Sports has everything you need for child’s tennis camp. From cute, comfortable tennis clothing to fun tennis racquet vibration dampeners.
We have created a list for what your child needs with a few pictures. Be sure to mark down your favorites and come in and see us. These items are going fast. And, keep reading, because we have a little something for the DAD in your family – a Father’s Day Giveaway from Ski Country Sports. Read on!
Each child is going to need their own racquet for their specific needs. Our racquets start at 17 inches and go up to 27 inches. We carry both boy and girl color racquets. The beginner level player retails at $25 and advanced player retails for $105.
These quick-start low compression balls are perfect for the 10 and under player. We carry different compression levels for different ages. We also have the full compression balls for your teenagers. These balls are under $5…Now that’s a SMARTY DEAL!!!
Clothing is just as important as racquet and ball size. Your little Nadal or Williams sister will want to wear cool, wicking, and comfortable tennis clothing. They will want to sport sturdy tennis specific shoes. Don’t worry, The Tennis Shop @ Ski Country Sports offers a variety of both boys and girls color ways and styles. Nike, Adidas, Tail, KSwiss, Head, Wilson, and Fila are all very affordable.
Don’t forget a tennis bag and tennis racquet accessories. Need your tennis racquet restrung or need your handle rewrapped. Come on it and our guys will do it within 24 hours. Our bags are perfect to keep all of their tennis gear in once place.
Parents: please do not forget to toss in some sunscreen and a water bottle for your athletes. The temperatures can get very high and the sun gets pretty hot. Make sure they are getting plenty of water and sun protection.
Please feel free to come in and speak to our professional staff about any of your child’s needs. We also offer everything in Mom and Dad sizes. Don’t forget to go out and spend some quality time with your rugrats. They grow up way too fast for you not to enjoy these early years.

Following CSP & Ski Country Sports on FB. Besides watching continuos coverage of the French Open on the tennis channel, my husband is obsessed with the kids version/Babolot racquet. He wants to start getting our twin boys on the court. He recently bought them k-Swiss tennis shoes. He’s a total tennis fan!
Following both! I’ve been a tennis player my whole life and can’t wait for my girls to start taking lessons so we can have family tennis night! Since I have a very picky little girl who only likes pink and purple I’m thrilled they have “girl” colored rackets!
Liked both! I am the tennis addict in my family, and my current crush is Asics court shoes. They are so comfortable, wear well and come in so many fun colors. I really need to branch out from my basic whites.
Liked and following! This is perfect timing, my daughter is going to her first ever tennis camp and is in need of all of the above! Great list of what she needs and now I know where to,go to get her supplies!
Following both! After switching from gymnastics to tennis last fall, my 10-year-old is definitely ready to upgrade her tennis racquet from the Target buy.
My husband just demoed 2 new rackets last week. We play tennis weekly and it is time for an upgrade!
My 5 year old just started tennis and loves every bit of it.
From the outfits to the racquets. She has so much confidence on the court it gives us such joy to watch.
I shared this post, liked both and am following both! I recently played tennis again after a 20-year hiatus and loved it! The coach told me I couldn’t come back onto the court until I had real tennis shoes! So this would be perfect timing!!!
