Can You Carry Tennis Rackets On Airplanes?

As a family, we usually go on holiday about once a year. We often go to Turkey around the end of May as it’s not too hot, not too busy and the sea is already quite warm. However, one thing I miss when I go is playing a bit of tennis. Many hotels have tennis courts and some specialise in offering coaching and activities for adults and children.

Tennis Balls Vs Baseballs

These days I don’t really follow American sports that much. Apart from tennis, I’m a big Aston Villa fan (unfortunately, my team has been poor for many years now).
