Hmmm... What makes a preppy tennis player?
I don't think equipment does it or how well you play the game. I think it's all about style and in some cases where you play.
Regarding style, there is nothing like a preppy tennis racquet cover
to signal that preppy style.Lacoste says it all and isn't limited to the courts.
This adorable, ruffled, tennis skirt from the new Nike line is sure to be at most clubs this summer. Not sure if it is too young for the over forty crowd though, will have to wait and see...
As for where you play...
To me it isn't the showy, ostentatious clubs that say preppy. It is the old, traditional, low key all about tennis type of place I love.
Have you ever been to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island?
Please see the beautiful old buildings with the grass courts pictured above.
That's what I'm talking about.
