Learning how to play tennis for the first time in over 20 years, I was frustrated with the lack of stylish tennis clothes available in the UK. The more I searched for suitable outfits, the more interested I became in the sportswear choices that women have made (or have had to make) over the last 100 or so years.

Whether you’re hiking, sailing, horse-riding, skiing or playing tennis, having the right clothes is important, for performance and safety, as well as feeling confident. Our writers are all hands-on sports enthusiasts and we hope to create interesting, useful and inspirational content to help women find the right kit for the job.

(The flaming tennis ball in the header is my ‘tennisified’ version of the Carr clan badge; the Sun in Splendour. And yes, I really do hate backhand volleys. Though if you ever play me in a match, I’m totally just kidding about that.)
