Created on Ipanema Beach, Frescobol is an ideal way to pass some time in the sand. It has no scoring system, with the only point being to hit the ball back and forth — getting you some exercise without the potential for hyper-competitive blunders. These Frescobol Carioca Beach Bats are an ideal way to get into the game. Handcrafted in Brazil from carefully selected off-cuts of wood, each bat has its own look and feel, and is finished with a colorful neoprene grip and a special surfboard resin coating. Even better, they're sold in sets of two, so you don't have to worry if your playing partner didn't bring theirs.
Tennis followers know that Roger Federer has been seen playing with a mystery racket this year — and now we know why. The Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph Tennis Racket is the 17-time Grand Slam champ's new signature tool, developed over three years in a close collaboration between Federer and Wilson. Features include a 97-inch head that provides outstanding feel, a 26-percent wider racket beam for more power, a 10 percent larger sweet spot, and a matte black finish. Still not sold? Well, consider this: the RF97 will be Wilson's first Autograph racket in 30 years, and the last one, the Jack Kramer, was the best-selling racket in history.
Anyone who's ever tried traveling with their golf clubs knows the pain that is trying to drag around a heavy bag full of rattling metal sticks — and that's not even mentioning the troubles of transporting them on a motorcycle or bike. DV8 Golf Clubs aim to get rid of all these problems by putting a full set of clubs in a lightweight backpack. Thanks to a patented quick-change coupler, you can switch from a graphite to a steel shaft or from a 5-iron to a putter in under 3 seconds, all without giving up the performance you'd expect from a full-size set — or dealing with the hassle of hauling them around.
