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!

What kind of towel do you use when you play tennis? -- 2.0

Can one say too much about tennis towels? Probably and I’m just the one to try!

US OPEN tennis towels

True story: One of the ladies I play tennis with is a pro tournament towel magnet. (Judy do you recognize yourself?) I have seen her posts on Facebook from the US Open and BNP Indian Wells to name just two, of her showing off the towels that were handed to her from players. I’m not kidding you; the players just love her! Yes I’m jealous! Granted I haven’t attended nearly the number of tournaments she has, nor have I been in the on court seats that she has so kinda hard to get a towel if I’m not there like she is. I’ve only ever bought the towel from the pro tournament or been given one by a friend that goes and she bought them. (Almost as good as getting one from a player)

Last year I while watching coverage of Wimbledon, Brad Gilbert spoke on how he has a player towel from Wimbledon for every year since he has played there. In fact he’s traded towels to have both the men and women’s towels. He does what it takes to get as many as he can and it’s some fun game he plays with other guys from the tour.

This year while listening to the coverage of Wimbledon this year I heard MaryJo Fernandez say that she uses her Wimbledon towels in her guest bathrooms. (Guessing her guests may include some former Wimbledon Champions!)

Those player towels are awesome towels. Full, plush, and memorable! One year my doubles partner and I were invited to play in the Simply the Best tournament hosted by the Texas USTA Section in Austin. Here is the towel that we all received as ‘players’! It has been stored away so as not to be ruined or lost and will now be used in my continuing effort to stay out of my towel funk!

Simply the Best Masters towel

What is your favorite towel? Is it your favorite because it was a gift? Did you earn it or win it? Is it oversized, hand towel sized? Is it like a loofah or soft and plush? Feel free to comment here on what you think makes for the best tennis towel! And maybe let us know if you think we should make a towel!

What kind of towel do you use when you play tennis?

tournament towels

I saw this picture of a friend on Facebook and it made me wonder about how many tennis towels I have. I went to my linen closet looked at my stacks and decided I would estimate at 25. That said I really only use the top few in the stack. Convenience obviously (top of the stack) dictates my usage. It made me think that there had to be a better way to determine my towel usage!

Here’s the thing, all of my tennis towels have some meaning. Some of them were given out by tournaments that I entered, some were awarded as prizes for winning or being the ‘bridesmaid’, some were gifts, and others I purchased. All of them are meant for on the court. I rarely use the really nice ones (the extra special ones) because I think might lose them or damage them. So because of that, many of those really nice towels stay safe and sound in my linen closet leaving me to use the not so special towels for everyday use. So I NEVER use the super nice towels. Wait what?

Has that happened to you? Have you ‘saved’ your special or unique tennis towel for special matches only to find that you forget to use them or are afraid you might lose them or damage them?

Wimbledon towel

So this summer season I have made an effort to get out of my towel funk and actually USE my ‘special’ towels and enjoy them. You know what? They are really good towels and I really do enjoy them! My personal favorites in these really hot months have been my oversized towels. They are super soft and can really handle my summer sweat! For the first time since I owned my Wimbledon towel—a gift from my BF and it bears my initials, I pulled it out of the linen closet and used it as often as I could keep it clean every time I was on the court. Now it wasn’t magical, and I did not suddenly play like Chrissy, or Martina, or Serena, but I really enjoyed using it. (Which is the point of a gift right?) Now I’ve pulled out my US Open towels and will rotate using them.

Now in case you wondered, I still wear my Wristpect Sport wristbands and they still are invaluable for the in-between point sweat mopping and no other wristband does fashion better than one of our wristbands unleashed! It’s just during the really hot months here in Texas (May-September) I need the help of a good toweling in-between games!
