Ray's Tennis Shop


Ray's Tennis Store ROCKS! I went today looking for replacement shoes for pickleball. Everyone was so nice, and extremely helpful! It takes me quite a while when shopping for shoes. Comfort is crucial in all shoes, but when looking for outdoor court shoes, performance is equally key. I never felt rushed or that anyone was getting annoyed with me taking so long,

While Ray got me started with multiple possibilities, a couple employees offered not only pertinent insight to various shoe makes & models, but they also brought out a few other shoes for me to try. The younger male employee told me to keep trying them, and to notice if there is a pair that I keep going back to. That is exactly how I eliminated a few "possibles". It was one of these additional shoes that he brought out for me that was "it"! The Babolat Jet Mach3 was the one for me. I am VERY HAPPY with my purchase! Thank goodness meeting a customer's needs is this store's priority. I definitely recommend coming to this personally owned store for shoes! They know their sports and the products they offer! They also have a huge selection of apparel!!

Although Ray's Tennis focuses on the needs of competitive tennis players, we offer products suitable in both performance and price to entry level players.

[06/17/20]   I hope all of you are out playing it safe(with covid-19, that is). With your tennis game, you should be trying to paint the lines and got for broke. Things are opening up, and we are seeing a steady flow of players coming into the tennis shop to get geared up. Alex has been hard at work getting more and more product onto the website for those of you living far from here or just unwilling to take the risk. He just added some junior Babolat frames to the website and will follow up with some sale and clearance footwear from Babolat, Asics, and Yonex.

I hope these words find you in good health and spirit. We miss seeing all of you in person. Be well.

Warm wishes,

Roger Ray

The new SFX3 is finally making its way to our stores. We should have a bunch by Friday.

[10/20/17]   Just looked at the current ATP and WTA rankings. The Race to London is wide open. There are going to be some fresh faces at the big finale. In the ATP top 20 seventeen nations are represented. 14 in the women's rankings. There does not appear to be anyone country dominating the sport like in years past.

[05/19/17]   Just in case you were wondering, Ray's tennis is chock full of Roland Garros merchandise from adidas, Nike, and Babolat.

[05/19/17]   Could this Roland Garros be Rafa's 15th? If so, that would put him in second as all-time Grand Slam singles champion behind Federer. Could Federer get to 19 at Wimbledon? This is a very exciting year for these two greats.

[03/13/17]   Talk about a huge win, way to go Taylor Fritz!!

[03/12/17]   Finally back for Facebook time. Sorry for the long absence. We'll be checking posts and messages regularly. -Roger Ray

45th Anniversary

45th Anniversary We started this business before half of the brands of today even existed. Heck, Tennis Warehouse wasn't even a twinkle in the eye of its founder.
Thanks for all the support!

[05/29/14]   We finally have the new face on Ray's Tennis. We are ready for Roland Garros with awesome RG-branded products from Babolat(Official Racquet Supplier) and Adidas(Official Apparel Supplier. Come say hello to our new employee, James. He is helping in a big way. Hopefully, we can make our customer service even better. See you soon.

[02/13/14]   We are now in our 4th week of our remodel. It appears as though we need about three more in order to be able move our point-of-sale to the front of store. We are still pretty well-packed full of great footwear and apparel clearance items. See you soon.

[12/06/13]   So, we are just waiting for permits for our facelift. We have planned a footwear and apparel clearance during the construction.
FYI, we have already reduced the prices on hundreds of pairs of men's, women's, and kid's shoes. Come in and check out the clearance prices.

[11/20/13]   We are proud to offer the new Yonex Ezone Ai series. These new frames provide an even more solid feel, improved swing speed, and reduced vibration over the Xi series. With new weights available in the 98 s.i. and 100 s.i. frames, this family of racquets can take care of your entire family of tennis players. Come in an give 'em go. If you are wanting the 108 s.i. frame, you'll have to wait until December 6. See you soon!

[11/09/13]   So, I just got back from visiting with Babolat at their North American HQ in Louisville, Colorado. I was there to learn the hardware and software for the new Play racquet that Babolat launches 12.12.2013. Most of my customers know that I am not the most ardent Babolat product fan. I have a very strong appreciation for the quality, design, and playability of Head, Volkl, Wilson and Yonex models. I have played most of my life with Yonex, so it might be a surprise to read the words I am about to put down. Babolat has created a racquet technology as significant as the introduction of graphite. As you all know, graphite is used in the construction of all high performance racquets by all brands. Babolat's Play racquet is a connected performance racquet that can deliver almost all the important information about your personal performance as a tennis player. It is a technology that will someday be as ubiquitous and affordable as graphite. For now, if you want to be one of the lucky few to play with this diagnostic version of the world's most popular frame, the Pure Drive, you will have to invest $399USD. I believe it is money well spent!
