I shoot tennis with my 80D and 70-300L and am quite happy with the results. If budget is a concern, how about the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM? It's lightweight and fast-focusing.

Yeah the new version II is another one I've considered. Gets great reviews and the price is an absolute bargain A lighter weight telephoto has a lot of appeal.

I debated between the II and the L that I eventually got.  A street price deal helped me make up my mind, along with the knowledge that the lens was likely to take some punishment over the years (I also use it to shoot wildlife).
