Best Tennis Bags
I believe that the best is subjective, so I’d encourage you to explore to find the right bag for your needs at a price that makes you feel good.
With that said, I’m super familiar with all of the companies that make tennis bags, and I’ve purchased more than a handful over the years. I’ve also spent many hours researching and exploring them, so I’ve pulled together a list of my favorites in each category to provide you with a solid jumping-off point.
One of the most popular options for ladies, here’s a selection of my favorite tennis totes for women.
Cinda B Tennis Court
The Cinda B Tennis Court Bag is a versatile tote with a dedicated racquet compartment for storing up to two racquets and a handful of internal and external pockets for organization.
A few of my favorite parts about Cinda B’s totes is that it’s large enough to fit an oversized tennis racquet without being overly bulky, lightweight, stain-resistant, and machine washable.
I also appreciate how the racquets store outside the bag’s main compartment so they don’t get in the way of the rest of the items.
Ame & Lulu Love All
The Love All tote from Ame & Lulu is a stylish bag that features clean lines and is available with a handful of designs printed on the side.
Of all the options, my favorite is the Pink Love design, which showcases the word ‘Love’ printed on the bag’s side.
Hands down, my favorite part about this bag is the canvas material, which looks fantastic and transitions effortlessly from the court to a day out with friends or the beach. Another nice touch is the cutout on one side of the bag that cradles your racquets and allows them to lean over to the side.
As far as downsides, the canvas material is a light beige and not the easiest to clean, so it’s a perfect candidate for adding a tote hook or carabiner, which I discuss in the accessory section, to help keep the bag off the court and clean.
Glove It Tote
A specialty brand focusing on tennis and golf products, Glove It offers a popular line of tennis totes with some of the most expressive and colorful designs compared to most others.
Their totes are some of the larger available, and they can easily store up to two tennis racquets with plenty of room to spare. I also like their durable nylon construction that cleans easily.
A few areas where I think the bag could improve are adding a few additional pockets for internal storage and a dedicated slot for racquets. Although the main compartment is plenty big to store two racquets, they’re not separate from the rest of your gear.
Easily one of my favorites, Vessel combines style and performance with their Baseline tote. The bag fits up to two racquets in a dedicated compartment that’s padded to help protect your frames and a waterproof zipper to keep liquids from pouring in accidentally.
When you’re not using the bag for tennis, the racquet section works perfectly as a laptop compartment.
There are two exterior and five interior pockets to help keep everything organized, including a velour-lined pocket for valuables like your sunglasses or cell phone.
You’ll also find a key clip, plenty of room for storing extra gear, and an added nylon shoe bag that cinches close for your shoes or dirty clothes. On top of it all, the bag’s premium synthetic leather is ultra-durable, weather-resistant, and easy to clean.
Court Couture Monte Carlo
The Court Couture Monte Carlo is a premium designer tote that’s an excellent option and doesn’t skimp on features.
My favorite part about the bag is its clean and simple style that looks great on and off the court, and the cross-grain faux leather provides a high-end look with a sporty touch.
The bag has three primary enclosures. In the center, you’ll find a well-designed zipper compartment with a cutout on one side, which allows the racquets to lay neatly to the side. Then on either side of the racquets, there are two additional sections with plenty of pockets for the rest of your gear.
As far as drawbacks, the biggest is its price point, but if you’re looking for designer bags, the price is somewhat reasonable.
Torey Burch Convertible Stripe
If style is a top priority and higher prices won’t offend you, then the Convertible Stripe Tennis Tote by Torey Burch is one of the best.
Torey Burch created a timeless bag that works well on and off the court with its removable external racquet compartment.
The bag features coated canvas for extra durability, faux leather trim, and subtle touches like matte powder-coated hardware.
Aside from the price, which will be a stretch for many, the bag could use some extra internal pockets for organization. Depending on your needs, it’s a great candidate for a bag organizer.
An excellent option for the court, backpacks are well-worth considering as a go-to tennis bag.
Cinda B’s tennis backpacks are as cute as they are functional. They include an external compartment for two standard-size racquets, and the main enclosure offers decent space and a few pockets.
As far as backpacks go, it’s not the roomiest, and I do wish it offered racquet storage for oversized racquets, but if you’re looking for a stylish, lightweight option, it’s one of the best out there.
Another popular option from one of the biggest names in tennis is the Wilson Team backpack.
The backpack offers essential features, including a dedicated racquet compartment, a sizeable main enclosure for gear, a front zipper accessory pocket for valuables, and two mesh side pockets that are large enough for a bottle of water and a can of balls.
At the top of the bag, you’ll also find a grab handle for easily carrying the backpack at your side.
One of my favorite parts about the bag is its clean design, which strikes a nice balance between functional and sporty.
Head’s Rebel backpack is an excellent option if you’re looking for extra storage and don’t mind its sporty look.
The bag comes in grey and orange and has a unique squared-off shape that helps make it easy to pack and gives you extra space for your gear. You’ll find a dedicated racquet compartment and two side pockets with zippers on the outside.
One of the bag’s unique features is that you can pack it from the top like a typical backpack or lay it down flat and open the front zipper to pack it like a duffle bag.
As far as areas for improvement, I think the bag could use a few internal pockets for organization.
A slightly smaller option from Head, the Elite backpack offers many of the same features as the Rebel.
You’ll find storage for two racquets, a smaller front zip pocket, two mesh side pockets, a shoe compartment, and a roomy main enclosure.
A grab handle at the top makes it easy to pick on the bag or carry it at your side. If you’re looking for a no-frills option, it’s perfect.
If you’re getting serious about tennis and looking for some extra storage, then racquet bags are an ideal choice.
The Vessel Baseline racquet bag is one of my favorites, which seamlessly blends style and functional design with many features that put it a cut above the rest.
The bag features two main sections. On one side, there’s a thermal-lined racquet compartment for warmer climates that comfortably fits two racquets, and then on the opposite side, there’s a large enclosure that has more space to store the rest of your gear.
You’ll also find a dedicated shoe compartment and four exterior pockets for keeping everything organized, including a thermal-lined water bottle pocket and velour-lined valuables pocket.
The Baseline racquet bag from Vessel has a lot to love, from the quality zippers to the comfortable and removable backpack straps and durable materials. However, my biggest knock on the bag is its size for a racquet bag, so that’s worth keeping in mind.
If you’re looking for something a bit more manageable, the Vessel Baseline tennis backpack is also worth checking out.
Geau Sport Aether 3-Pack
Geau Sport started with some innovative backpacks and has expanded to include a few additional colorful bags, including the Aether racquet bag, a compact racquet bag with a handful of unique features.
The Aether features a sizeable main enclosure to store up to three tennis racquets and additional gear. You’ll find a larger exterior pocket for carrying items like a water bottle on one end. Then there’s also a felt-lined zipper accessory pocket for your phone, valuables, or other small items.
There’s a mesh zipper pocket on one side of the bag, extending the entire length, giving the bag a unique style that’s also practical for storing items like a towel that you’d want to breathe.
If you’re looking for a compact minimalist racquet bag that’s intentionally on the smaller side, it’s a fantastic option.
One of Wilson’s larger racquet bags, the 15-pack, will store up to that many racquets, but more often than not, players are storing a handful of racquets and plenty of other gear for competition.
If you’re looking for a racquet bag with maximum space, this one is likely right up your alley. The bag features three main compartments for racquets, clothes, tennis balls, exercise equipment, etc.
One of the main compartments is thermal-lined for protecting your racquets and strings from warmer conditions. There are two large zippered side pockets for accessories, a ventilated shoe compartment, and adjustable backpacks straps for easy carry.
Although the bag is intentionally oversized, this will come as a downside for some ladies, so I’d steer clear if you’re looking for a racquet bag but want to keep the size manageable.
Babolat Pure Drive 6-Pack
As the name suggests, the Babolat Pure Drive racquet bag has enough room to store up to six tennis racquets, so while it doesn’t skip on room for gear, it’s not too large either.
A few of my favorite parts about this bag include the thermal-lined racquet compartment for insulation and a dedicated shoe compartment. Plus, it has an ideal amount of storage – not too big or small.
As you’d expect, the bag has external pockets for stashing your accessories like overgrips, phone, and keys. Although this bag doesn’t have many bells and whistles, it’s a reliable option with a competitive price that continues to be popular among competitive players.
For extra-large versatile storage, duffle bags are a great option.
Oliver Thomas Kitchen Sink
My favorite tennis duffle for women is the Kitchen Sink by Oliver Thomas. As the name alludes to, this bag is large and has space for everything you could need to bring to the court.
The bag is available in a handful of colors, but it’s also customizable with special badges that you apply to the outside.
Inside the bag’s main compartment, you’ll find two mesh pockets, a zipper side pocket for small items, and a hidden pocket at the bottom of the bag that’s perfect for storing your shoes separate from everything else. The duffle also has an external zipper pocket at the front and a slip pocket at both ends for quickly stashing items like tennis balls or a water bottle.
You can use the duffles handles or detachable strap to carry the duffle around, and for multi-purpose use, there’s a removable yoga mat or towel strap that attaches to the top of the bag.
The bag is lightweight, vegan certified, machine washable, water-resistant, and fadeproof. There’s even an RFID pocket for keeping passports, IDs, and credit cards secure.
The Clash is one of Wilson’s best-selling tennis racquets, and this tennis duffle features design hints from the racquets.
Although it’s a smaller duffle bag, it’s roomy enough to comfortably fit a few tennis racquets, plus any other gear you might want to bring along, including extra clothes, a towel, water bottle, etc.
I appreciate how the bag has an external shoe compartment to keep them separate from the rest of your clothes, which is also excellent for stashing wet, dirty clothes after a match or practice.
Finally, for carrying, the bag comes with adjustable straps that are perfect for finding the right fit regardless of your height.
If you’re looking for a medium-sized bag for the court, then be sure to check out the Graphic duffle from Adidas.
It’s a no-frills bag with one external quick access zip pocket and a large main compartment with another smaller zip pocket.
The bag features longer carry straps and a detachable shoulder strap if you need some extra support to transport your gear.
Smaller than the Adidas Graphic bag, the Diablo is another worthy option for carrying extra gear to the court.
It’s a super simple bag with one large main compartment, carry handles, and an adjustable carry strap.
Although it’s a simple duffle, it’s also super affordable, so it’s worth checking out if you’re looking for a less expensive option.
