October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so it’s time to think pink! It’s easy to join the crusade against this devastating disease that will affect 1 in 8 women in their lifetime, with your favorite brands like Wilson and New Balance donating to breast cancer research each time a pink product is purchased. Tennis Express is doing our part as well when you shop our pink products by donating a portion of the proceeds to Serve Up a Cure that provides breast cancer support and awareness through the greatest sport on earth! You can start by stocking up on pink ribbon accessories for the court – like Tourna Tac Grip for your racquet, and the Hope Ribbon Racquet Stencil with pink ink – a small move that men, women, and juniors can do to make a difference! You can’t play tennis without the tennis ball, so why not change out the fuzzy yellow for the fuzzy pink in a case of the Wilson Hope All Court balls? Your current string and cooling towels can also be swapped with versions that support the cause, and all the loot can be tossed into the super cute Whak Sak Tennis Sling shown here.
The new calendar season means it’s time to get yourself some new kicks, so why not pick a pair that raise awareness? All of the big brands (and even some of the smaller ones) like Nike, adidas, Prince, Asics, Under Armour, Puma, and Diadora have incorporated pink into their lineups, so chances are you can find your favorite models in a shade that showcases your support. Don’t forget to lace up those babies with Susan G Komen Pink Ribbon Shoestrings from New Balance plus pick up some Susan G Komen Sneaker Balls too because cancer stinks – but your feet don’t have to!
You don’t have to spend a fortune to support the cause – Tennis Express has plenty of products that serve to spread the word, starting at only $1 with the GREATERGOOD Hope Faith Love Silicone Bracelet (by the way, it’s not too early to think of these tied onto a gift or for stocking stuffers!) Wristbands from both Wilson and Wristspect! are useful additions to your wardrobe that also play their part in public awareness. With plenty of products priced under $20 turning up rosy in bags, shoes, apparel, and accessories departments, you can work awareness into any budget!
