Read on to find out 8 items to buy the next time you’re at Decathlon.

Ever felt like you’re hindering your tennis game with amateur swings? Or having to frantically find friends to play tennis with? Either way, Decathlon has got you covered with the Artengo “Ball is Back” Tennis Trainer. Its elastic cord is designed to bounce back and mimic someone swinging the ball back at you.
Priced affordably at $13.90, parents are able to buy this for their children who are just starting out on the sport. Conveniently compact and lightweight, the Tennis Trainer is safe and useful for playing at void decks or at any open spaces!

6. Snorkelling Gear
Their snorkelling gear has been raved all over the globe for its amazing quality and price point.

For those who are keen on trying the sport out, pick up a beginner set of their snorkelling gear made of Subea Aqua Shoes, a mask and a snorkel tube. It’s a small investment of $10 and most importantly, you get to avoid using rental gear that might be unhygienic.
