This is one of the secret businesses you occasionally stumble upon. It is in a shack on Draper Avenue across from the La Jolla Library.
RSW sells all things tennis, shoes, socks, caddies, etc. The least expensive tennis rackets are out front on the used rack with $80.00 being the cheapest I’ve seen. The new ones run up into the nose bleed section.
I paid a $20.00 rental fee that allowed me to try out various rackets until I settled on one.
As cool as the $20.00 fee is the the best part of the experience are the guys who run the place. They have been there for years and are very patient and helpful.
While pricey it is definitely worth searching out.
