Give your racket a boost

With a real sense of fun, these brightly-coloured Wilson vibration dampeners are the perfect Christmas gift for the tennis nut in your life.

While dampeners do not prevent injury, they do reduce string vibrations to create less noise on impact. These vibration dampeners are best placed by the throat, beneath the final cross string.

At just £5 RRP for a pack of two, the Wilson Vibra Fun Dampeners are the ideal stocking filler, or perhaps for a Secret Santa gift. Choose from the glitter hearts, flames, clover, or ying and yang. The Bowl o’ Fun (RRP £114.80) contains 75 vibration dampeners.

And of course, if you’re feeling really generous, you could always treat them to a racket instead…
