Looking for that perfect Father’s Day gift this season? Well if your dad is a tennis buff then you’ve come to the right place. Below, you will find our top six choices for the best gifts for Father’s Day in 2016.

1. Babolat Pure Aero Tour: Used by Rafa Nadal, this “heavier” version of the Pure Aero is made for those dads that are looking to plow through their groundstrokes with ease. At nearly 12 ounces, this racquet manages to deliver the stability of a traditional player’s racquet without compromising the speed and pop required for the modern-day power game. Your dad will thank you and might even throw you a “Vamos!”

2. A trip to the 2016 US Open. Sitting court-side with your dad and watching the best players in NYC is exactly how to create those long-lasting memories. Let the good people at Grand Slam Tennis Tours take care of all your traveling needs and enjoy the final Grand Slam of the season in luxurious style!

3. Nike Men’s Summer Court Bomber Jacket: You might not find a sharper looking jacket all year.
