Tennis gifts | Tennis hats
Was Andy Roddick the first pro that popularized wearing a ball cap on court? Could be. Now they’re quite popular on court, with Andy Murray frequently donning one for match play. Cap off your favorite tennis lover’s year with an always welcome tennis hat. No tennis bag should be without one (unless you always play indoors).
Ladies first, of course.
adidas Women’s adizero II Hat

Nike Women’s Winter Featherlight Hat
The Dri-Fit, terry sweatband wicks away sweat, and the mesh insets keep the breezes circulating for a cool-wearing, luxuriously lightweight experience.

Nike Swoosh embroidered in front. Available here.
Hello Kitty Women’s Love Hat
Maybe you’d like to break away from the standard corporate logo look. While Hello, Kitty might indeed be the symbol for a multi-zillion dollar company, there’s the standard touch of whimsy with this look, that signals while you don’t take yourself too seriously, your opponent should pay attention to your serve. The Hello Kitty Love Hat features a terry sweatband, preshaped bill with polka dot print trim and underside, adjustable back buckle, and an embroidered Hello Kitty on front with hearts and logo at sides.Pink w/White or White w/Light Pink, naturally. Available here.
The Alabama Girl Glitter Hat

Now let’s see what Santa has for the guys:
Hydrogen Men’s Hat White
Italian line Hydrogen isn’t known for their, um, subtlety, but here they opt for as clean a look as you can find — a plain white cap with their rather distinctive skull logo embroidered in the front. It features mesh panels for ventilation, an adjustable back strap, and pre-shaped bill. Available here.
Nike Men’s Winter Heritage Court Logo Hat
Keep your face shaded in Nike Court style. With AeroBill technology, this hat has a comfortable fit and a lightweight feel.

A reflective pull tab on back makes adjusting the fit of your hat easy. Also features a high density Nike Court logo at center front. Available here.
adidas Mens adizero II Hat Black/Aluminum
Same design as the women’s version above. Find it here.
Nike Men’s Winter RF Hybrid Hat
