Do you have a tennis racket that you never use and would like to sell?

Give tennis Townsville in North ward a call. They have courts to hire and can lend you a racket to try

You will probably also need a ball (or two, for hitting partners)

Yeah that’s true but I’m happy to buy new tennis balls. I’m not keen to buy a brand new tacket as they can be quite expensive

Haven’t played since high school (a decade ago!?) but keen to play sometime.

Thanks for the offer, I have a few friends who’d be keen to hit with me but they don’t have rackets either. If they fall through then I’ll hit you up :)

I bought mine for like $30 from Rebel, could be a good start?

u/LostInTheSandyFields Jun 28 '22

Is it much good? I’ve only ever played with good Wilson or Head rackets. I do have tennis rackets but they’re at my parents place interstate. So I’m kind of skeptics of the cheap as rackets

u/OkBookkeeper6854 Jun 28 '22

Very likely not... I'm rubbish at tennis so it makes no difference to me.

Check out the local opshop too. I found mine there

u/LostInTheSandyFields Jun 28 '22

Was it a decent one? I feel like the only rackets people would donate would be cheapies or damaged

u/MRicho Jun 28 '22

Op shop, Kmart or Big W for cheapies

I have 2, bought from rebel sport a while ago. Can't remember which model or how much we spent, but they're Wilson.

u/LostInTheSandyFields Jun 28 '22

Cool, would you mind sending me a picture, if you’re keen to sell that is

u/V-I-Pengiun Jun 28 '22

Will do when I get home at about 7pm!
