Tennis Gifts 2013: Advantage Color

AVEX Wells Water Bottle

The Wells water bottle by Avex Sport is my new hydration obsession. A spout pops up at the touch of a button and closes back down to protect against dirt and germs. A straw means you don’t have to chug.

Toss one in your tennis bag and run to the court. Your gear will not get soaked. If you like to chill your bevie try the aluminum version. It’s a little more money but the bottle will not sweat. I even tested it in hot yoga.

Those who actually prefer to chug – sipping IS a bit dainty – go for the Bazos autoseal version (also Avex). Did I say I loved these? 

$14 – $30 at


Everyone’s game could benefit from more time on the practice court. These rolling hoppers by Hop-a-razzi liven-up repetitive drills in 12 vibrant colors.

HOPARAZZI stacked colorsThe Hop Junior and Hop Pro have snap-shut lids for portability, and snap-in legs for sturdy standing (a must feature in my book). Ball capacity runs up to 125 balls (pro model).

$50-$100 at

 Color becomes in small brilliant flashes with wristbands by Wristpect.


I love these silky smooth wristbands and how artsy they make my outfits look. Pretty colors, pretty prints.

$18 for two. Check them all out at 

Asics Womens Gel Resolution Multi

Have to mention the Asics Womens’ multi. Really great looking, fun shoe. I wrote it up here.

Nike Sunglasses

Nike sunglasses are made specifically for athletes (who else would they make them for, I know). They offer grip, stability and lightweight comfort in a host of cool colors.The above is the Racer in Yellow.  Nike Max Lens Technology, soft rubber nosepads and 100% UVA/UVB protection are pluses.

Pick a color:  $116 – 156 at Tennis-Warehouse.

Other colorful items I’ve writen about lately:

Super fun Sparkly Soul headbands, and  All things red. My brand sections (see Fila for ex. are also good places to look) as are Women’s Tennis Fashion and Men’s Tennis Fashion. Color inspires.

Look good feel good, play well. You know it.
