Looking sharp on the golf course can cultivate a winning attitude, which is why golfers wear tucked-in shirts and caddies wear evening gowns. Dress for 18 holes of success with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $55 toward racquets, clubs, sportswear, and gear at either Drilling Tennis and Golf in the District or its sister store TennisTopia in Rockville.
Please note that the 17th St NW location will be closing on December 31, 2011. TennisTopia will be accepting all Groupons until the expiration date.
The dedicated sports pros at Drilling Tennis and Golf outfit swingers for both the court and course with designer gear and name-brand apparel. Projectile packs of three Wilson tennis balls ($8.50) fill Gamma ballhopper carts ($29.99) before being served over nets via racquet or T-shirt cannon. Preparing to unleash force-of-nature serves, knuckles flip the brim of Nike Dri Fit hats ($19.99) and tug the laces on men's Adidas Barricade 6.0 hard-court tennis shoes ($109.99). Although both shops carry men's and women's apparel and tennis equipment, the District locale is the only shop stocked with golf goods.
At both locations, tennis demo programs keep customers swinging comfortably in store and out, and Drilling Tennis and Golf's golf demo lane employs expert analysis to ensure putt-putters meet the most game-compatible clubs.
At TennisTopia, staffers help players optimize their thwacking abilities with a large inventory of rackets, balls, and other gear from brands such as Adidas, Nike, and Wilson and a variety of tennis-oriented services. Restringing keeps rackets in taut, top-notch shape, and the shop also equips male or female teams with the weapons and matching uniforms to wage battle against gophers popping up through the clay in the middle of matches.
