Style Arc Sailor Sue Pants


Tennis warm-up pants (tracksuit trousers to the Brits) need to have certain features.  The most important thing (after fit, of course) is pockets for tennis balls.  I added two pockets to the back of these.  The second thing I like to have in mine are pants that are wide enough that I can take them off over my tennis shoes, because in Atlanta one often plays with a tennis skirt over the pants, or shorts under the pants.  Take today, for instance.  It's the first week of March and the weather was already 60F when I arrived at the courts.  If the weather had been even 10 degrees warmer, I would be taking these off after half an hour of play.  Tennis season starts next week, and by the end of the month it will be quite warm by noon.  Our team starts play at 9:15 am and ends (sometimes) after noon.  We can get quite a swing in temps during that time.

Anyway, enough about our weather here and back to Style Arc.  I'm so happy I've found this company.  The Elle pant is a great skinny pant and the Sailor Sue is a great tennis pant.  Now to find the perfect regular daytime pant...the Wendy?

thank you for the clarification because - how lovely you can go off and play tennis - I would really like to play tennis but don't have a partner.

Atlanta has the largest community of amature tennis players in the world, I've been told. We have about 160,000 players in the Metro area, arranged in order of skill and/or age. Another reason for you to come visit!
