All tennis players know just how important it is to have the right tennis bag to carry all of their gear. If you play a lot of tennis, especially if you play in tournaments and other competitions, you will need a high-quality bag to lug around everything you need to be successful.
For the most part, your options with tennis bags come down to the various sizes. Here is an overview of the various types of Wilson tennis bags you can choose from:
- Three-pack: Three-pack tennis bags do not have a whole lot of carrying capacity and do not have any extra compartments. This is the most basic bag, which might have a compartment for keys or a phone, but that’s about it. It should be able to hold three racquets and a few personal items. This is a good option for players who are not extremely serious about the sport, or who simply need little room.
- Six-pack: A six-pack tennis bag has two separate compartments, each of which is three inches wide. You can carry two or three racquets in each compartment, while still reserving some extra space for personal items, such as clothes or snacks. This is a good option for people who need a little bit of extra space for their gear.
- Nine-pack: The nine-pack is a good option for players who often play in tournaments. It holds up to nine racquets at once and has Thermoguard insulation, protecting all of the contents from bad weather conditions. Extra compartments are available to fit in personal belongings, including tennis shoes. The pockets are usually moisture-proof, so if you put wet clothes inside the bag, they will not affect other items you have packed in different compartments. Other variants have backpack straps to make for more comfortable traveling.
- 12-pack: Often referred to as a supercombi or supersix pack, this bag has excellent carrying capacity with wider compartments, and features backpack straps for easier tournament travel. Extra shoe compartments and accessory pockets are available for storing personal items. Each section holds up to four racquets with Thermoguard protection, keeping the bag protected from moisture generated by inclement weather.
- 15-pack: The 15-pack is essentially the same as the 12-pack with a few extra features. It looks like a duffle bag, and might feature some golf-bag style stand-up legs.
There are also special backpacks and shoulder totes available, which have features of their own to distinguish them from these tennis-specific bags. Backpacks are more comfortable and convenient than other forms of bags, though they usually offer little in the way of carrying capacity, making them only ideal for players who just need the bare essentials. Shoulder totes allow for a little extra storage capacity and are a bit more stylish than other available options.
