Where can I get tennis clothing in 3XL and 4XL sizes? I wish TW realized that big people play tennis too, some with the goal of becoming smaller!!

Not tennis specific, but I often see general athletic stuff at Marshalls/TJ Maxx in such sizes in the big and tall section.

If you are looking for Federer/Nadal outfits, you will struggle to find them obviously, but if you just want some good athletic breathable shorts/shirt, or a nice poly golf polo you should be able to find something you like.

Try losing some weight first?

Wow. What a helpful suggestion. Did your mother teach you to talk like that, or are you just a natural?
One reason I play tennis is for my health, Mr. Helpful. Your suggestion is like a bank reviewing a loan application, or an insurance compnay reviewing an application for health insurance: if you don't need the monetty or the insurance, they're glad for your business. Otherwise, hit the road.
Why is it that exercise clothing companies assume that the only people interetsed in exercise clothes are the people least likely to really need it? Because they have people like this south end of a northbound jackass working for them.

Yeah, the biggest they make for Nike Tennis specific clothing is XXL. IMO Adidas seems to run a little big. For example, I wear a medium in Nike and a small in adidas fits similar to it. You may have similar luck on the sizing like that, but do not quote me on it!

Adidas does indeed make clothes in 3X. Thanks.

I put 120mphBodyServe on my ignore list. I do not need the feedback from jerks. Nor does tennis benefit from having them in the game. These are the kind of folks people flock around at the club, and then talk about behind their back once they leave the room.

seriously you have got to chill.
do you realize how many teens there are on these forums, including me.
If you ask about 4xl of course some person is going to dis you.
if you didnt think anyone would you are an idiot.
I would side with you if you didnt trash him in 4 posts.

Check out fila, blake's clothes seem extremely big.
also, you could just wear regular clothes.
I sometimes do that if I ran out of my tennis shirts.

Dude, also, have you looked and seen what sizes golf stuff comes in?

Just a thought.

Golf shirts are usually even nicer than the tennis stuff, and the same breathable material. Then just a normal set of athletic shorts and you are golden. Unless you prefer crews, then you can just get normal training clothes.

They absolutely make training stuff in 3 and 4x. For all I know you could be a former football player, who decided to switch to a sport where your opponent isn't trying to kill you.

You wouldn't have to inquire about his health if you hadn't been such a tool with that comment in the first place. Think before you say something like that, it is a basic human sentiment.

Just because you are young, and thin does not mean that everyone is like you. Time is the ultimate equalizer though, and karma is what it is. Might wanna consider that right?

I applaud the guy for getting out and moving about the court no matter his size. Hell, how else will he fit your model of what a tennis player is supposed to look like (and yes I am being sarcastic).

OP,

Jolly's suggesting about golf shops is key. They make the dri-fit golf shirts in some very large sizes. Also casual male XL is a store that caters to lager guys and I have seen them in their before also.

It was just a simple suggestion/question.
The guy could've told me a bit more about his situation before going ahead and making a short sighted character assessment...
And maybe if he wasn't so lazy he might have already found some athletic clothes for "big" people if he had did a simple search on google???
Why the hell do people presume so much just from one simple question???

You can shake your head all you want, but people who are over weight can't just decide to lose weight. For some it is a real struggle that cuts in to the fabric of their being.

You might not be one of those unfortunate souls, but some sensitivity wouldn't hurt. The character assessment by him was justified, you sounded rude, shallow and crass. A simple apology by you would have rectified it....but I don't see you offering that either. Still ascertain that the character assessment was wrong?

To the OP - I didn't read all the posts but I would check out something like a Dicks Sporting Goods or any of the big box retailers. They normally carry a pretty broad range of sizes.

Best of luck getting back in shape, I applaud your effort. Nothing is worse than someone who refuses to try to get healthy.

Thanks to all who gave their support to me. For the record, I have found far more friendly and kind people in tennis than rude and insensitive jerks.
Dicks carries up to size XXL. I even asked the clerk there if Dicks thought that fat people didn't need to exercise!!
Casual XL is a great suggestion. I also have the local tennis shop owner, who is also a big guy (and a tennis pro) to keep an eye out for big sizes for me.

Beeing a spoiled dumb teen isn't an excuse for bad behavior and poor manners. It isn't the first time 120mphbodyserve has shown behavior similar to this,

I just ignored him the first time and thought he was just joking around, but now I begin to see a pattern in the way he behaves in here.

Now I'm not one to take sentiment, but the comment is being blown way out of proportion, and OP way overreacted. I know that some people are sensitive about certain things, but calling him him out that harshly, that fast was a little rash. I doubt he was trying to be hurtful, just a little attempt at bad humor in bad taste, that's all. I'll be honest, that kind of humor isn't exactly uncommon in society nowadays, if you think about it--learn to laugh it off.

I agree. Sure, it was a jibe, but far worse is done here hourly. It was a mildly funny jibe at that.

Anyone who couldn't take that joke....well.....and yes, the OP SHOULD take his advice and lighten up....literally, at least he's out there trying to play tennis, so give him credit for that! And yes, obesity IS a choice, 99% of the time.

I completely agree. Sure, it was a slightly insensitive comment, but unless you're really tall and a body-builder, you probably should lose some weight. If you were really upset about the comment, you should of just ignored it (instead of freaking out) and be the bigger man in the situation (pun intended).

I'm with you on more XXL and XXXL sizes. I'm 6'4" ~230#, built like a football player (which I was in college). Big legs, big booty. Even XXL in some brands like ST, Diadora, Lotto feel like XL and look like biking shorts on me. That leaves me with Nike (which I refuse to wear), Adidas and Under Armour, which is why I pretty much just wear my Patagonia trailrunning/hiking shorts while playing.

Hey, I'm a big guy too and I would also love to see more 3 and 4X tennis clothing. I have an additional caveat: How about 3 and 4XLT, since I'm 6'6" I have found some great workpout clothing at Casual Male XL--I believe they carry a line of Reebok dri-fit type shirts and shorts. Just another idea, I wear adidas tennis shorts in 2X but am unable to wear their shirts in the same size.

Now, how about from freakin' size 17 tennis shoes, too. I love my Barricade V's but sometimes they kill my feet. Largest size they make them is 16. Thaty seems to be about the norm for all performance tennis shoes. I did notice that LaCoste makes size 17's...

Yeah, its a bit of a problem. I love my Barricades but one day they are going to wear out.It's even hard to find them in size 16 now. Sometimes there here and sometimes not.

It seems the tennis shoes sizeing consortium thinks that no one wears anything larger than a 16! I'm about to email Asics, Adidas and other manufacturers to see if any of there other shoes would offer the same stability as "tennis specific" models.

I rolled my ankle back in high school and really messed up some ligaments. I was wearing some cheapo running shoes at the time when I was playing a quick pick-up game of basketball one summer. Never will I wear running type shoes to play b-ball or even tennis again.

Ideas?

OP, it's unfortunate that so many here would rather insult you and continue to act like junior high bullies than help you out when you asked for advice. I agree with others that BodyServe is rude, insincere, ignorant, and worthy of being on your "ignore" list.

To offer more suggestions, don't shop for tennis-specific clothing at all. It's not made for people who are big, tall, or both. I'm 6'6" 220 lbs and I wear wicking T-shirts and XXL basketball shorts that are long and loose to begin with. Nike makes my shorts in XXXL as well. Lands' End sells wicking T-shirts, but their selection is poor right now because of the season. Also check REI (www.rei.com) for extended sizes like the Sahara Tech Tee, which I just verified as being available in a 4XL. I have one and it's great.

Good luck in your quest for clothing. I applaud you for your efforts to get into better shape.
