So where does everyone buy their equipment? I'm looking to get new shoes, but my local pro shops have a limited shoe selection. Does anyone know of a pro shop (besides Rick's) that carry Nike, Adidas, etc shoes?
If you already know what you want I'd go on the web. I like tennis-warehouse.com. I have been getting my harder to find shoes there and the price is often better than neighborhood shops even after shipping charges. If you don't know what you want you are back to mom and pop shops and I don't know where they are in the east bay... I'd recommend tennis warehouse for trying out racquets though... You can keep up to 4 racquets for a week for about $20... I did that recently and was very happy with choice and service.
You should try Home Court Racket Sports in dublin in the eastbay. They have all kinds of great gear in there from rackets to shoes and apparel. it's a great place they even have an indoor clay court!!! Where is rick's pro shop by the way?
Thanks for the tip Mr. Jessie, I'll look into Home Court Racket Sports for sure. I've been wondering where there're clay courts in the bay area too haha. Rick's is in Fremont, close to Stevenson and Mission.
