Tennis Bag buying guide
Whether you are an occasional prayer or a professional player, possessing a tennis bag for all of your tennis gear (balls, grips, sh6oes, towels, snacks and drinks) is quite essential.
There are generally 5 types of tennis bags. Below is the description for each one of the type, which will help you in choosing th6e right tennis bag.
Backpacks: Backpack is an alternative to the traditional tennis bag that hangs from one shoulder. Backpacks are large enough to hold two tennis racquets along with couple of other sections for your tennis needs. To view some popular backpack bags, check out our Backpacks Page.
3 packs: If you are just a beginner or an occasional tennis player, who occasionally visits a nearby tennis court with a friend or just to have a feel of the game, then you might own one or two tennis racquets. In that case, a triple bag or a 3 pack (pro) would be just sufficient for you. In a 3-pack, you have one section (approx. 3 inches wide) for your 1 or 2 racquets and maybe a few other belongings like some snacks/drinks or strictly just three racquets. You’ll also usually find a smaller zipper section used for wallets, mobile, keys, etc. To view some popular triple bags, check out our 3-pack bags page.
6 packs: For a player who likes to carry more than two racquets as backups in case their strings break, 6 packs would be the right choice. A player, who is quite serious about his game, may find a 6 packs bag a convenient option. In 6 pack, you will have one section (approx. 3 inches wide) to hold 2-3 racquets, a section for snacks, an extra pair of shoes, extra pair of clothes, snacks, and few other belongings or strictly another three racquets.
12 packs: Finally, a player who is very committed to his game will need to carry 3+ racquets with them and are more than likely to pop strings on several of their racquets during the course of a couple of weeks. For such professional players, the 12-pack (also known as a super six or supercombibags) will be the appropriate choice. In a 12 pack bag, you find one section (approx 3-4 inches wide), big enough to hold 3-4 tennis racquets and another two sections big enough for everything else or simply 6-8 more tennis racquets. 12 packs also carry extra perks like backpack straps and separate zippers for your mobile, wallets, keys, etc making it very efficient for traveling to tournaments. If you think a 12-pack is what you need then check out our 12-pack page for some of the more popular styles.
Some tennis bags also come with other features like Thermal Guard Technology and Moisture protective sacks. Thermal Guard technology uses an insulating lining on the inner side of the tennis bag to protect your frame and strings from extreme weather conditions and moisture that can be harsh to the racquet. Moisture protective sacks are used to hold wet clothes and bags after a tough match and keep all of your other tennis gear dry.
