    Does anyone here use a "love cup"? I use them becuase sometimes my shorts dont have pockets. Also, does anyone find them annoying or undesirable?

    I carried one for a time when I played with a guy who never had any pockets in team tennis. After the third time I loaned him one, he ordered two. They tend to work, and you could get various colors as I recall.:cool:

    I got one that holds two, haha. seriously. I get irritatedt by it sometimes, usually if my shorts have a flimsy elastic waitband, and not one with a drawstring.

    What a name, the Love Cup. Clever! A little innocent joke. A little innuendo.
    I think Babolat calls it a 'ball clip'.
    Hingis made it famous, didn't she? Or was it Aranxta Sanchez?

    I bought one for my ex mixed doubles partner.
    Though she never wore it.
    I bought it for her because everytime she served she'd throw a ball back towards the fence.

    I was so tempted to call lets + deliberate hinderences on her after i advised her to stop.
