Tennis Promposal

This tennis-themed promposal will help you ask your favorite person to prom with a creative promposal they’re sure to love. This tennis prom posal was such a great hit!

Asking someone to prom is the first step to getting to prom, and the act of asking is almost as old as prom itself, but the act of asking has become more than just “asking someone to prom.”

What does a promposal mean?

Promposals have been a trend since the early 2000s.

A ‘promposal’ usually involves a special or elaborate act or presentation that took some thought and time to prepare

When should I ask someone to prom?

It would be best if you planned to ask sooner rather than wait until closer to prom.
Prom has things to prepare, such as finding a dress, renting a tuxedo (Save $50 on tux rental), transportation, buying tickets, making after-prom plans and other fun things that come with the big night. 

Can You Just Ask Someone to Prom?

Of course. Prom is all about you. You should do what you feel comfortable doing.

How to Make a Tennis Promposal

We opted for a more expensive tennis racket so it would be a special memory of the promposal.

Any tennis racket would work. We even considered a thrift tennis racket and painting it.

Ultimately, my son chose a racket his girlfriend could use to remind her of him and this event.

Lay the tennis racket flat (if you do not have a “new” racket with the cellophane still on the handle, you may want to wrap it with saran wrap to keep it from being compromised.)

Arrange your bouquet.

I used Eucalyptus in the back and then layered the hyacinths and baby’s breath.

Once I had the arrangement I liked, I wrapped the bouquet with floral tape.

I made a large bow for a wreath (YouTube Tutorial I used). I cut the length of the tail I wanted and then used all the ribbon to make the loops for the bow.

Next, I positioned the wrapped bouquet on the tennis racket and put the bow in position, and then used floral tape to secure it to the tennis racket. (Note: Floral tape sticks to itself when stretched.)

Once I had the bouquet and bow in place, I covered the floral tape by wrapping the satin ribbon around it. I did this by finding the halfway mark of the amount of ribbon. I taped the ribbon from this mark to the back of the racket, then pulled both ends forward and crossed over the racket. I repeated this process around the back and front until all ribbon was used. I tucked the remaining end tales into the “weave” of ribbon to secure it.

Next, I drew two tennis rackets crossed, lettered “We’d be the perfect” above the rackets, and used script lettering to write “Match.”

I then used a green highlighter on cardstock, cut out a circle for a tennis ball, and glued this ball onto one of the rackets.

I used purple marker to overlay the words.

I then taped a wooden skewer to the back of the card.

I used 9-inches of complementary (5/8 inch rainbow ribbon) to tie a small bow at the base of the card.

I then inserted the skewer with the card into the bouquet.

I cut two slits in the back of the tennis ball, ran a zip tie through it, and secured it to the tennis racket.

My son then waited until after his girlfriend’s tennis match to do his promposal.

She said, “yes!”
