My Winter Tennis Bag Check

what's inside my tennis bag


My Winter Tennis Bag Check

As I was organizing my tennis bag, I realized I have a LOT of stuff – and this is just my winter stuff. Check it out…the first photo is my bag. It’s pretty big because, well, I carry a lot of stuff.

In one section, I have five Prince tennis rackets. Yeah… Five. And they’re all identical, and 3 (with the blue overgrip) are strung for more control, and 2 (with the white overgrip) are strung for more power. I carry five at a time, mainly because I have room for them, and because there is nothing worse than breaking a string in the middle of a match and having no backup racket. I also have five rackets because this particular one works for me, and since tennis rackets are updated more frequently than iPhones, I bought as many as I could find before they were gone.

In the other section I have all my stuff which I may or may not end up needing, but is always good to have on hand:

tennis essentials


  • A sweatshirt for layering
  • Two towels
  • Two extra hats
  • An ice pack for occasional tennis elbow
  • My knee brace – I had surgery on my left knee about 7 years ago, and sometimes it’ll act up, so I use the brace as support.
  • Pen. I’m co-captain on one of my 2 teams, so I need a pen for filling out the lineup sheets
  • Sugarpova sports gum. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this gum! (It’s so sour that my mouth is watering just thinking about it, lol!)
  • Pack of tissues – my nose tends to run in cold weather
  • Two unopened cans of tennis balls – because you never know when you’ll feel like playing
  • Nike sports sunglasses
  • Ralph Lauren Polo wrist bands – these were a gift, I’m not a snob!
  • Hairbrush with hair bands in case it’s windy on the court
  • My Marc Jacobs accessory bag (OK, I’m a snob, lol!) for my “lady junk” – tampons, Carmex, bandaids, alcohol wipes, Motrin
  • I did have my rule book, but it disappeared after a match and I haven’t gotten a new one yet.

Alrighty then… I showed you mine, so you show me yours ;-)

No seriously… We are all really interested to know what’s in your tennis bag. Please share with us in the comment section below.

Right now I'm either up to my eyeballs in paint swatches and fabric samples, or kicking some butt on a tennis court (hopefully the latter).
