“ Manufacturer: Prince / Type: Tennis „
I actually won this racket bag in a competition at my club, but sometimes I wish I had bought it earlier!
It was my first racket bag. I had been playing tennis for 5 or 6 years but only in the previous two had I begun to take it more serious. (I define serious as playing two or more times a week). With this bag I was able to look the part without looking too serious. Let me explain what I mean by that.
I was probably 15 when I got this bag, and previously had been carrying onto court a racket (maybe 2), some drinks, a can of balls, sometimes a skipping rope for drills, a coat or jacket and probably more. Yet I didn't have a bag? When I got this bag it made life so much easier for me, and also made me look the part. I definitely preferred turning up to coaching lessons or matches carrying a genuine racket bag!
On the other hand, one thing that both my friends and I absolutely HATED, was when we would see people turn up with 12 racket bags. Makes these people look so unbelievably arrogant. Don't get me wrong, I've lost to people with 12 racket bags 6-0 6-0. But most of them I sent back home with a loss, but hey at least they had the nice bag!
So overall if you want to look the part, like you're not playing tennis for the first time, then this bag is definitely the one for you (or maybe the 6 racket also). But PLEASE don't go out and get a 12 racket bag if you don't deserve it. If you're top ten in the county - Fine. If you earn money from tennis - Fine. Otherwise it's a big no no.
Finally, I'll give you an idea of how I used the bag.
In recollection, (I had the bag 5-6 years ago now), the bag has two main compartments, one slightly bigger than the other.
The bigger compartment I would put my rackets - at this point I only had two.
The smaller compartment I would store drinks as well as a couple of tubes of balls. There would be a couple of small pockets in this smaller compartment where I would put things like money and often my LTA membership card for safe keeping.
Then there is outside pocket which I found to be a fairly reasonable size too. I would tend to keep small things in hear, like a spare pair of shoelaces, a skipping rope and miscellaneous items like that. It also gave me a place to put my phone safely while I was on court.
