There’s a lot of emphasis placed on what rackets and other equipment to get these days. But have you ever thought about what bag you should get to carry all of your chosen equipment around in the first place?

If not, or maybe you just haven’t thought about it until now, I’m glad you’re here.

There are a few things to consider when making this decision too, things that might be overlooked without the necessary research.

Just think – how many rackets do you own?

How much equipment do you usually carry to a match or to the practice court?

Do you like a larger or a smaller tennis bag?

Do your shoes smell after several hours of intense play?

All of this needs to be considered. But rather than produce a huge range of tennis bags for you to choose from, I’ll be providing you with a top-five list to help narrow things down.

The bags I’ll be talking about are all awesome in their own regard, but the one that you ultimately choose will naturally depend on what your preferences are (click here if you need a nudge in the right direction).

With this said, let’s kick things off with my rundown of the best tennis bags in the market right now.

The best tennis bags – my top five

Federer DNA 12 Racket Bag

I may as well kick things off with the bag from my all-time favorite player, Roger Federer.

For a man of his reputation, you’d have thought that he’s fairly good at picking the right bag to hold his equipment in.

Not only does this bag carry the signature of Roger Federer on the outside, but it’s got a great color, it will protect your rackets, and there are separate compartments to store your sweaty clothes and shoes after a match/practice.

Key Features

  • Holds 12 rackets
  • Matte black style
  • 2 shoulder straps
  • Hard exterior to protect rackets

Pros

  • The bag of Roger Federer
  • Awesome design

Cons

  • Expensive compared with others

Wilson RG Premium Backpack

A backpack is an ideal solution for a tennis bag if you don’t have a ton of equipment to carry around.

In most backpacks, you can fit a couple of rackets (three at a push), your shoes, some tennis balls, a tower, and a drink.

There’s not a whole lot more you’d typically need for a game of tennis, and the fact that it’s a backpack makes it perfect for those who might not have the luxury of a car to get to the courts.

And for this particular backpack, it’s made with sturdy material, the design is cool, and there are multiple compartments.

Key Features

  • Three compartments
  • Clean white design
  • Official Roland Garros Bag
  • Protected on the bottom

Pros

  • Cheaper than 12 racket bags
  • Ideal for cycling or walking to the courts

Cons

  • Limited space compared with larger bags

Babolat Pure Drive 6 Racket Bag

Since I’ve already covered the 12 rackets and the lightweight solution, I may as well cover the middle ground now.

For me, 6 racket bags are perfect if you have a decent amount of stuff to take with you, but you just don’t feel the need to upgrade to a 12 racket bag.

And no, don’t feel that you need 6 rackets to justify getting it. I had a 12 racket bag for most of my playing career, and not once did I ever travel with 12 rackets!

Now, coming back to this bag, it has a separate shoe compartment, insulated pockets, and hard material for the exterior to ensure your equipment won’t get damaged.

Key Features

  • Can hold 6 rackets
  • Removable shoulder straps
  • Clear shoe pocket
  • Insulated fabric to keep drinks cool

Pros

  • A more economical solution
  • Vibrant blue design – you won’t lose the bag!

Cons

  • Just three main compartments

Tecnifibre Tour Endurance 15 racket bag

This bag is endorsed by one of my favorite rising stars of the game – Daniil Medvedev.

On top of that, the bag (as you can see) is able to hold 15 rackets at once.

Of course, not many of us wander around with 15 rackets in our bags, if ever. But if you think about it, this bag can double up as a racket bag and a suitcase if you’re traveling away to play.

This saves space, and money if you are traveling by plane!

Besides the economical reasons for a 15 racket bag, this one really is slick, just check out the features below:

Key Features

  • Two ventilated pockets for wet shoes/clothes
  • Tarpaulin lining on the exterior
  • Two separate accessory pouches
  • Bag of choice for Daniil Medvedev

Pros

  • Used by many pro players on tour
  • Sizeable bag with plenty of storage

Cons

  • Fair expensive compared with others

Head Djokovic 12R Monstercombi Tennis Raquet

It’s hard to dispute the incredible achievements of Novak Djokovic over the last decade.

And while we could all only hope to play like him, we can definitely take advantage of the equipment he uses to give ourselves a boost!

This 12 racket bag gives another middle-of-the-park solution for those with quite a few rackets and plenty of equipment to cart around.

But it’s not just the size of the bag that made me pick this one, for it’s also easy on the eye, loaded with various compartments to separate equipment, and it’s cost-effective!

Key Features

  • Cool black and white design
  • 12 racket capacity
  • Insulated compartments
  • Approved by Djokovic

Pros

  • Padded straps for ease of carrying
  • Multiple compartments to separate gear

Cons

  • White design can get dirty easily

And the winner is …

At the end of the day, you want a tennis bag that is durable, high-quality, sizable to carry all of your equipment, and won’t break the bank.

That isn’t too much to ask for, right?

Of the list of tennis bags I’ve provided above, for me, the ultimate bag has to be the first one I have listed – the Federer 12 racket DNA bag.

And as you’d expect, Federer carries a fair amount of kit with him for events!

But coming back to the bag – the design on this one is sensational, it’s not overpriced for what it is, and it will keep your equipment dry and secure both at practice and at tournaments.

Therefore I must say – well done Roger for selecting such a quality tennis bag!
