If you're looking for Yonex, there are Yonex showrooms at Seacon Square and Central City Bangna. You can get Yonex racquets, tennis shoes, strings, grips etc.

There's a Wilson store near National Stadium BTS and Tesco Lotus (a hypermart) if you're looking for Asian versions of Ncodes.

Adidas and Nike apparels are available at major department stores - Siam P aragon, Emporium and Central Chidlom. You can also check out other brands like Volkl, ZONS, Pro Kennex, Fischers etc.
He is right, hint, better do yr homework while yr in HK, 'sports/tennis shops (not the big HK Dept. stores or sogo), before heading to BKK. In BKK i've only found some limited items frm adidas (thai made gear), nike for asia market all made in prc or viet w/ higher imported goods pricing, so no 'deal' hr.
No rackets r made in thailand so all rackets r subject to import duty. Hint, HK is a duty free area.
