Tennis players spend plenty of time worrying about their racquets, shoes, and apparel, but they often overlook the importance of choosing the bag that’s right for them. The tennis bag may seem like a secondary concern, but it’s especially important if you find yourself traveling to tournaments beyond the familiar territory of your local park or tennis club. As we’ve come to rely on more and more technology during life on the road – without our smartphones and laptops, we may as well be on Mars, right? – tennis bags have evolved to accommodate those needs.

Tennis Magazine’s 2017 Bag Guide is all about “dual threats” – bags that are both stylish and practical. Here are some selections from that list that we feel really stand out:

Wilson Federer Super DNA

The ULTIMATE Federer bag is the Wilson Federer Super DNA 12 Pack Tennis Bag. The bag itself is identical to the Federer DNA 12 Pack, but it comes with a few extra goodies: a solar panel, battery, and travel pillow.  Now you can recharge your battery on the go wherever you need.  It has many features that are perfect for elite players who take their game seriously.

Dunlop Performance 12 Pack

Hold up to 12 racquets in three separate compartments with the Dunlop Performance 12 Pack Tennis Bag. Two of the main compartments feature a thermal lining to keep your racquets protected from the elements outside insuring there’s no unnecessary tension loss or moisture buildup with any of your racquets. Outer accessory pockets keep smaller items secure and organized. Padded adjustable backpack straps that can be reversed and top handles provide easy carrying.

The bottom of the bag has an integrated shoe compartment, giving you plenty of room to store anything you wish to carry.
