Tennis Trunk sent this pamphlet along with the box. This month’s theme is sun protection so Tennis Trunk included information on the importance of sun protection, signs and symptoms of sun damage, and some general sunscreen use.
The back of the pamphlet give a bit of information about the items they sent. Also this Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm for lips sample was stapled to the pamphlet.
Pro Tennis Premium Sunscreen - $10.95
This is a broad spectrum sunscreen that is supposed to be water resistant for 80 minutes. It’s made with aloe so it should spread on nicely. If descent weather would ever return to northeastern Ohio (I know! I probably need to move to make that happen), I could get on the tennis court and tell you how it works. The one seemingly informed review I found on Amazon reports this sunscreen is top quality.
This is a great product! I’ve used it before and it spreads nicely as well as protects my lips in the sun, which is something I think people often forget to do.
Ristrap - $7.00
This is a high quality wristband with a nice feel and good fit. It comes with a R.A.P. (read.apply.play.) card with pointers on how to identify your opponent’s weaknesses during play. There is symbol on the wristband to remind you of what you learned. My card had information on the Law of 8 Opposites. I was directed to this link where I could learn more about the Law of 8 Opposites. Pretty cool idea!
Wilson Comfort Overgrip - $5.95
Overgrip is used for grip comfort and/or short term repair if your grip need to be replaced. This is a great overgrip and necessary product for avid players.
Wilson US Open Regular Duty - $14.97
This is a well-known tennis ball brand with a great reputation. I’m happy to get these in my box.
Verdict: I think Tennis Trunk is a great subscription for avid tennis players. The products this month are very useful for any tennis play though – avid or not. Right now I’m trying to build my tennis ball collection to fill my hopper so getting tennis balls plus some other goodies on a monthly basis is great! The value is good too for a specialty box like this. Subscribers receive $46.56 worth of products for a monthly price of $34.99 (or less for prepaid options.)
