Suppose the 2 of us want to pick up tennis doubles or just play singles anywhere in London or Scotland. I guess I should bring my racket. I guess that, otherwise, if we paid for guest courttime at some inexpensive club, we could use a free loaner or use one to try it out. . that way, avoiding having to bring a racket. I'm afraid of having to look out for my racket along with my suitcase and backpack, or is it not such a big deal? I never use and don't have a racket case. I suppose if I do take the racket I'd have to invest in some sort of cover. Please advise. I'll be abroad for a month and hate the thought of having to worry about a racket, never having traveled with one before. Also, any SUGGESTIONS about where to play in London and Scotland?
