A tennis racquet,
the most wonderful stick of fun,
the prime minister of the court,
next in power to you.
Like different prime ministers,
there are different racquets,
each giving different advice
and hope to you.

A tennis racquet,
a colorful stick of joy.
Racquets with different powers,
hit the ball vigorously,
with strings vibrating,
making a wonderful sound,
and the round, green tennis ball
goes over the court.

A tennis racquet
a magical wand with extraordinary powers,
helping you find your way to victory.
It will guide you and give you power.
It will win you a match in the blue royal court.
It will be your most cherished possession.
