Barbie and Ken had coordinating tennis ensembles. Ken's was Time for Tennis #790 (1962 - 1963). They can sometimes be difficult to find in great condition, because of the white fabric and all of the tiny accessories.

The tennis dress, which has a zipper in the back and the tennis racket are usually the easiest pieces to find. The jacket is a very soft knit and it tend to get really dingy and also the orange print is prone to fading. I do not recommend trying to wash the jacket, the orange bleeds onto the white when it gets wet. The little book is really just a little piece of cardboard and it can be the most difficult item in the ensemble to find.
