HOW WE REVIEWED

We looked at 10 tennis bags focusing on a variety of brands, sizes, styles, and deluxe design elements. To provide the most accurate review, our team spent a month using the bags for travel, tennis practice and matches. The reviews will provide a good idea of how to match your needs with the right tennis bag.

OVERALL PRICE RANGE

The price range starts at around $45.00 for a tennis bag that will hold 1 racket with mesh side and a zipper pocket. As you move up the ladder, the tennis bags become larger holding more rackets. A nice feature even on some mid-priced $60.00-$100.00 tennis bags are the ventilated compartments that let your sports clothes breathe, preventing an odor buildup in case you forget to wash your gear. Not to mention the welcome separate shoe compartments. The high-tech design element on bags nearer the $300.00 range, (that also include a racket) has a thermal interior liner protecting your racquet against heat and cold.
