How do you wear a wristband?

The sweatband was originally invented by tennis and sportswear legend Fred Perry in order to be able to absorb the sweat from his face and from his arm(s) on the court while playing. Tennis players all over the world have been wearing wristbands for ever since. For most elite players, wristbands are a vital tool for fighting the sweat that drips down the arm to the wrist, or to wipe away the sweat traveling down their foreheads.

A good many of the top pro tennis players like Bethanie Mattek-Sands wear wristbands for good reason. Many recreational players like me use them too. For a long time wristbands came in one color, white. It's only been in the last 10 years or so that anyone has worn  wristbands that are pigmented. Wristpect Sport wristbands have colors, patterns, and designs!

Wristpect Sport! wristbands are both a tennis fashion statement AND a tool that works. Here’s how I wear them:

Step 1

I choose a wristband like Viper&Vantage that cordinates with my attire. There are other wristbands but Wristpect Sport! wristbands are 80% cotton and 20% spandex. They are fun and coordinate well with EVERYTHING. I sweat a lot and my Wristpect Sport wristband can handle it!           

Step 2

I pull my wristband down my forearm to the end of my wrist. I do not cover my wrist completely, as I must keep maneuverability in my hand. I keep my wristband in the appropriate spot, so my wristband will absorb the sweat trickling down my arm and keep my hand dry. 

Step 3

I use my wristband to wipe the sweat from my forehead and face. When playing a match or practicing, sweat will roll down my forehead and ultimately into my eyes. I wipe away the sweat as often as necessary.


Step 4

When I sweat, my Crimson&Tide wristband absorbs it. Other wristbands get  soggy and loose. WS! wristbands have an extra outer layer of Sweat-Ban™ material. This outer layer that wipes the face stays fresh and dry no matter how much sweat is absorbed by the terry under side.

I keep extra WS! wristbands in my MaggieMather bag in case my partner or a teammate forgets to bring hers!

When you think of Billy Crystal and Fernando Lamas think of Wristpect Sport!


Many moons ago Billy Crystal got the brilliant idea to impersonate the suave and sophisticated Hollywood star Fernando Lamas on his recurring skit on Saturday Night Live. The skit was called Fernando’s Hideaway. Two lines spoken became iconic: “You look MAHvelous” and “I would rather look good than to feel good and you know who you are.”

Wristpect Sport took the plain white terry wristband and gave it a facelift of style by adding a second layer of wicking material. The second layer not only wipes the sweat away from your face, it provides you with a beautiful tennis accessory!

Wristbands and Chocolate

 Forrest Gump: My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."

For people who don’t know Wristpect Sport!, our wristbands  are like that box of chocolates. But that’s only because they don't know what our wristbands are made of. However, once they do, they find we are not at all like a box of chocolates! We are much more like the M&M candies that melts in your mouth, not in your hands.

Best Friends! and M&Ms

Why? Because both have a colorful, playful unique outside that coats the wonderful inside. While the inside of an M&M is chocolate, the inside of a WS! wristband is 100% lush absorbent terry.

WS! wristbands wick away sweat from your face resulting in a drier outside layer while the inside terry layer stores the heavy sweat so you never get a face full of mush!

Sweat hard, however do it fashionably with Wristpect Sport!
