About Us

Our Story
As avid tennis players, we realized that Farmington Valley was in need of a tennis shop.  And not just a tennis shop, but one with the latest equipment and apparel.  We needed a destination for providing racquet players of all levels with expert advicepersonal service and simply a place to stop in and chat about the sport.  So in 2015, we happily opened Valley Racquet.

25 Years of Racquet Experience!

Cristina Walters, one of our owners, also happens to be a tennis pro, how cool is that?  As head pro at the Golf Club of Avon, Cristina has been coaching tennis to a wide range of ages and skill levels for over 25 years.  Not to mention, she recently earned her Master Racquet Technician (MRT) certificate from the US Racquet Stringers Association - one of the highest certifications a racquet sports retailer can receive.

Stop in, or call us anytime.  We can't wait to meet you!

Great service and customer attention." - Mark Taylor, CT.

"My son has just picked up his first junior racket and I could not have been more satisfied with the service that

to a child."  - Mike White, CT.
