Longer tennis skorts, they do exist

A common request we get is help finding a skort of a certain length. Recently we rolled out the option of shopping by length on our skort page — found only on the Tennis Warehouse women’s site.

I’m sure many of you have noticed that skirts and skorts just keep getting shorter. Not long ago, 12 inches (we measure size smalls) was rare and considered very short. Now 12 inches is the norm. Just because that’s the norm doesn’t mean a lot of women aren’t looking for longer lengths, and lately finding skorts that offer more coverage has been challenging.

Jofit’s Mina Skort is the longest we carry at Tennis Warehouse. It is 18″ long in a size small.

Enter Jofit. The brand’s philosophy is all about fitting and flattering a woman’s body of any size, shape or age. A lot is put into how Jofit garments fit. For example, tops are darted to give the waist shape, and the scooped bottom hem lengthens your leg line to keep your silhouette slim. Jackets also have a two-way zipper to create a narrower waistline.

Color me excited!

Come on up, give it a spin! Where will the wheel land?! Nobody knows!

I hope you like color because, boy, is it back in a big way. It doesn’t matter where on the color wheel your preference takes you because you’re sure to find something to suit your tastes. 2012 is turning out to be a year not for the wallflower. If you’re a tennis player, it’s time again to be loud and proud with your gear. And don’t be afraid to mix and match the colors. These days, anything goes. Confidence is the only required matching accessory.

Your best accessory is always confidence.

To start things off, we have exclusive colors of the Asics Gel Resolution 4 for men and women that will match anything. It took every crayon in the box to make these! Remember, confidence is key, but that won’t be a problem when you’ve got these strapped to your feet.

Now on to women’s apparel (ladies first!)… Whether vibrant or soft sorbet in hue, orange, turquoise, teal, pink are all on trend this season. Mix and match to your heart’s desire.

Boring is out; color is in. Left to right, Puma Summer Perf Layer Tank, Nike Summer Tie Breaker Tank, Tonic Spring Grand Slam Tank, Athletic DNA Spring Sport Logo Top, Jofit Acapulco Athletic Tank, and adidas Spring barricade Tank

The Puma Women’s Summer Perf Layer Tank and Athletic DNA Sport Logo Top are perfect examples of mixing and matching the season’s colors. These top show us how it’s done by mixing three colors for a summery, bright look for those who like a laidback style.

Nike’s Summer Tie Breaker Tank and the Jofit Acupulco Sport Tank also show off a tri-color design, too, but have more of a match-ready appeal.

Still infused with color but taking on a more solid design, the adidas Spring barricade Tank and Tonic Spring Grand Slam Tank hit the mark as well.

Lime, bright yellow or green, whatever you call it, it's in style. From left, Lacoste Spring Neon Croc T-shirt, Head Spring Performance Polo, adidas Game Set Smash T-Shirt, Wilson Summer 1 Explosive Crew, Athletic DNA Spring Motion Crew, Nike Summer Distraction Hoodie.

Men who have a zest for life or like fashion with a twist are in luck. Lime is the flavor, nay color, of the season. (Did I lay it on too thick with the puns there? Sorry about that!)

For the casual guy, tees are the easy go-to. The Lacoste Neon Croc T-Shirt cools down the lime with a grey base, but adidas goes all out for the lime with the latest color of the Game Set Smash tee.

Performance fabric fans will find plenty of lime, too, as evidenced by the crop of crews and polos in the bright hue. Pictured here are the Head Spring Performance Polo, Wilson Summer 1 Explosive Crew and Athletic DNA Spring Motion Crew.

I suspect that lime’s popularity is not going to fade because Nike’s Distraction Hoodie in grey/lime is going to easily be warm enough for late spring cold fronts and the onset of fall.

Volkl V-Tac Overgrip in Orange

Just want to throw in one last hurrah for color. Have you checked out the new colors of Volkl’s V-Tac Overgrips? The orange is super bright, and the green ain’t too shabby either.

We’ll see you (get it? haha) out at the courts.

Happy Hitting!
