Every tennis player knows how important it is to have the perfect tote for their tennis gear (towels, shoes, grips, balls, snacks, drinks etc). Whether you’re an avid player or a tournament competitor, you’re sure to find a functional bag at Tennis Express. Below you'll find a guide to finding the right type of tennis bag for you. After you’ve decided on the optimal size for your racquets and gear, check out our bag selection or click the categories above to see your options.

3 Packs
If you’re an occasional tennis player who stops by the neighborhood courts a few times a month or a beginner who is just getting a feel for the game, you most likely own one, maybe two, tennis racquets. If that’s the case, then perhaps a triple or 3-pack bag would be sufficient for you. In a 3-pack, you have one compartment (approx. 3 inches wide) big enough to fit three racquets at the most. If you don't have three racquets, that will free up room to fit a change of clothes and some accessories. These bags often feature an exterior zipper compartment used for keys, wallets and so forth. To view some popular triple bags, check out our 3-pack bags page.

The racquet backpack is another great option for players hitting the court on an intermittent basis. Backpacks usually feature enough room to fit one or two frames, and they can be a comfortable alternative to the longer racquet bags that hang off the shoulder. These compact carriers often feature compartments for water bottles, tennis ball cans and accessories. View our backpacks page to see some popular options.

6 Packs
For more serious players who like to carry a few backup racquets as well as additional tennis gear, the 6-pack may be the most convenient bag size. In a 6-pack you will have one compartment (approx. 3 inches wide) to hold 2-3 racquets as well as an adjacent compartment for an extra pair of shoes, change of clothes, snacks, and a few other items. View our 6-pack page to see your choices.

9 Packs
Tournament players will love the 9-pack option. The usually feature three pockets capable of holding up to nine racquets. Often one compartment will feature ThermoGuard insulation to help protect your racquets from extreme temperatures. The other two pockets and exterior accessory compartments are capable of holding everything from an extra pair of shoes to sweaty clothes (many come equipped with a moisture-proof pocket). Backpack straps are also a common feature. View our 9-pack page to see your options.

12 Packs
For the most committed players, the 12-pack (also known as a Supersix or Supercombi bag) will be the way to go. With one compartment (approx 3-4 inches wide) big enough to hold 3-4 tennis racquets (and often equipped with ThermoGuard), this is the largest of the racquet bags. Great for tournament travel, 12-packs feature extra perks like backpack straps, shoe compartments and multiple accessory pockets, making it great for a long day at the courts. Check out our 12-pack page for some of the more popular styles.
15 Packs and Tournament Bags
The 15-pack option has 12-pack features with slightly more space built in to the three main compartments. Some versions even come with golf-bag style stand-up legs! Tournament bags have the space of a 15-pack, but are often shaped more like an oversized duffle. They also tend to have one large compartment instead of three smaller ones. Check out our 15-pack and tournament bag page for more.

Shoulder Totes
Looking for something simple and stylish to carry your tennis gear? Tote bags provide the perfect solution. Featuring strong shoulder straps and eye-catching designs, totes can add personality to your game while easing transportation of your racquet, tennis gear, and personal items. If you think a shoulder tote is right up your alley, check out our Shoulder Tote page today!

*In addition to various sizes, many tennis bags also come with other features like moisture protective sacks and Thermal Guard Technology. Moisture protective sacks are you used to hold wet clothes and bags after a hard match and keep all of your other gear dry. Thermal Guard technology uses an insulating lining on the inside of the tennis bag to protect your frame and strings from extremely weather and moisture that can be detrimental to the racquet.
