Tennis Towel by TennisGiftsAndMore

Personalized Tennis Towel

It’s not just a sports towel—it’s also a kitchen towel or a hand towel!  Made of soft cotton velour, this towel can withstand a normal wash cycle and bleach, though the artist recommends using a gentle wash and color safe bleach to help preserve the towel and design.  Colorful, durable and homey, this may be just the right hand towel for your guest bathroom or sports towel for yourself or your kids.
