I absolutely loved back-to-school shopping growing up. There’s nothing better than heading to class with a brand-new backpack, squeaky clean pair of tennis shoes and razor sharp set of No. 2 pencils. For tennis players, back-to-school shopping also means scoping out designers’ fall collections for tank tops, athletic skirts and cozy hoodies. Whether you’re about to start your first year of college tennis, are prepping for the high school season or are taking lessons for the first time, we found some adorable autumn tennis apparel to add to your back-to-school shopping wish list.
Starting your freshman year of college in the fall? We love this “Game, Set, Match” charm necklace, Stella McCartney tee and lemon yellow kicks for the collegiate tennis player. Be a stellar student-athlete with this red Vera Bradley backpack, library-themed Kate Spade tumbler and J. Crew button-down.
