Not only is England home to Wimbledon, sometimes the tennis mates get to travel to India and play at the Commonweatlh games in India. They quickly learned that getting around in India is much harder than back in the UK. You see the UK has something that India doesn’t have, National Cycles, for their preferred transportation choice.
Wouldn’t it be nice if they made a tennis racquet clip bike holder, like in the 1930’s, on your bike so you could carry just the racquet with you on the court without lugging the entire thing?
Even without this attachment bikes are a great choice o get to your next game. You see http://www.nationalcycles.co.uk is a UK based company that deals in a plethora of bike choices. The company has an excellent collection of cycles ranging from women bikes and children bikes to mountain bikes, folding bikes, jump bikes and even eco friendly hybrid and electric bikes. The company has been operational in UK for a number of years (their website doesn’t say when they were established) and because of its satisfied customers and great service, it has also achieved the Buyer’s Choice Award, London.
The competition in Delhi will feature the five traditional tennis events – men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles. Of course getting around in India the team would need mountain bikes with the condition of their roads over just plain bikes.
The Commonwealth Games are one of the few competitions in tennis when British players represent their individual countries, rather than playing under the banner of Great Britain.
For most of the year, tennis is an individual sport and players travel to tournaments all around the world to pick up ranking points and prize money. The four Grand Slams – Wimbledon, US Open, Australian Open and French Open – are regarded as the most prestigious titles to win. Of course if you win any of these you could easy pick out your choice of road bikes.
