    I went to college in San Luis Obispo, not 30 mins from where the Tennis Warehouse is now. Which leads to my question: What does it cost them to send it over seas to Eire? Are there any shops in the Dub 12 area? I currently use a Prince triple threat Rafter, which is discontinued. I need to buy another soon before they are unavailable or switch back to a POG mid.

    BTW, SLO is a gorgeous place.

    I hear Ludgate O'Keeffes in Cork is closing down. I think he is retiring. No "proper" sports shop left in Cork then!

    I just bought my latest raquet from Ebay, cheap and it arrived fast (for a change) h.gif

    I cant recommend highly enough, it is the part of the Martyn Evans shop in Fitzwilliam. I bought a racquet online on Tuesday and I got it on wednesday, couldn't believe how fast I got it. I also bought another racquet but I messed up on the grip size, rang the shop and they were very nice, I called into the shop and they sorted me out there and then. Fantastic service with this shop bought online and in person.

    They looks reputable enough but their racket selection is quite poor.

    A big thumbs up from me, for Martyn Evans in Fitz!

    Another big thumbs up for Martyn Evans in Fitzwilliam from me. Great after sales service, they really look after their customers.

    (PS - I've no connection with the shop, just very impressed).

    Anyone know which sports shop in Dublin actually sells tennis t-shirts, shorts and proper trainers, other than going on line or out to Fitzwilliam.
    Looking to buy today and have to go into town at lunch time.
    Do the usual places like Champion, Elverys and Lifestyle even do tennis gear anymore?

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,150 ✭✭✭ Johnmb

    If you can't get out to Fitzwilliam, then Elverys would be you best bet out of the others you named. They still have some sports stuff, and have not turned fully into fashion shops like the other two!

    Does anyone know where I'd be able to get a 6 racket bag for badminton?
    I'd prefer a Yonex or Babolat.. but at this stage I don't mind.

    Also new or 2nd hand, I'm happy either way.

    I was in Martyn Evans and I found most the bags too expensive, because I'm only a student and €45 for a Babolat 6 racket Team bag was too expensive

    anywhere i can get towel grips in dublin tried but they don't have them on their website, need them asap sp ebay would be no good

  • Registered Users Posts: 134 ✭✭ dizzyg

    Wow, towel grips! Old skool :)
    Haven't seen any towel grips sold anywhere in years. Why towel? I used to have blisters on blisters when I used them!

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 20 tipptop1

    for extremely wet conditions, used karakal pu but they were no good

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,101 ✭✭✭ brianblaze

    Anyone got any reccomendations in Dublin where to pick up a decent squash racket at a good price? Ben using an Argos special for months and it's really holding me back! (IE falling apart)

    Brian Blaze.....Martyn Evans at Fitzwilliam is best in Dublin. Ask for Joe, Will or Nigel
