Choosing a Tennis Bag
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.
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. Browse our 3-pack page today to choose from our wide selection!
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. If you think a 6-pack is right up your alley, check out our 6-pack page today to choose from our wide selection!
Tournament players will love the one of the 8,9 or 10-pack options. 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. Check out our 8-pack, 9-pack, and 10-pack pages today to choose from our wide selection!
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.

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! 15 pack tennis bags are also usually the top of the line bags from each manufacturer so they will have the most features and the highest quality.

Rolling tennis bags are great for players that like to take their tennis gear with them on long trips. With enough room to store in excess of 12 racquets or as much gear as you can cram in, these aren't your average court bags. Usually coming with a telescopic handle and smooth wheeling motion, these bags are easy to transport. Plus, firm carrier straps offer versatility when wheeling won't work and you need to carry or lift this bag. View our page Rolling Bags today to choose from our wide selection!
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. Browse our Backpacks page today to choose from our wide selection!

Tournament bags are usually the same size as a 6-pack tennis bag. They typically are bags that consist of one to two large compartments suitable for carrying several racquets and some additional gear. They also don't usually have backpack straps, but rather carrying handles or one main shoulder strap instead. View our Tournament Bag page today to choose from our wide selection!

*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.
