I don’t know if you’ve tried to get tennis gear in Cyprus, but the sports shops here are not that switched on to tennis and it’s worse for women than men.  It has improved though.  Below I’ve listed where to get certain items, but please feel free to send some comments/suggestions.

Racquets

There are distributors in Cyprus for most of the major brands and you will find that most of the tennis coaches or clubs will be sponsored by one of them.  They should all have demo racquets that you can try out to find out which suits you best.  You shouldn’t rush choosing a racquet as not every racquet suits everyone – you have to find out what suits you best, how it feels, how you play with it, whether it suits your game.  Click here to go to an article about it.

Be careful which brand you buy, as a lot of shops sell really cheap balls that start off not being good and last 5 minutes.

Racquet Grips

Shops have started stocking better grips now, but be careful to check they offer the right absorbency (bear in mind how hot it gets here so you can easily go through loads of grips if they’re not good)
