Shoulder Bags for Tennis

Wilson Match III 3R Bag
Shoulder bags are suitable for casual or occasional tennis players.
Shoulder bags are popular single compartment bags for ladies, teens and older children at the recreational level. They are designed to carry a single racquet, a tube of tennis balls and a small pair of shoes. Generally speaking, they are not very popular with men who tend to prefer bags with two straps and two or more compartments.

The problem with this bag style for men starts with capacity. While these bags are large enough to carry shoes sized for ladies or children, they are not usually big enough to handle men’s shoe sizes. A man with size 10 or larger feet will often have trouble getting their shoes in the bag along with their racquet and balls. And if they do manage to stuff everything in, the zipper soon starts to fail. The larger the man’s feet, the more of a problem a bag this size will be.

The other problem with bags this size for men is weight. Male racquet sports players tend to carry more equipment that women. Furthermore, the equipment they carry tends to be heavier. Men’s shoes, for example, are larger AND heavier that ladies shoes. Their racquets are heavier, too. Men also tend to carry more balls and more accessories that either women or children.

Shoulder bags are not designed to carry a lot of weight. In fact, too much weight causes them to sag in the middle which in turn causes them to want to fold and become very awkward to carry.

So if you are buying a bag for a recreational player you will want to consider how they will be using it before you opt for a shoulder bag.

If the player you are buying for is a woman who usually carries a purse, then you

If the player is a casual or occasional player who does not need anything more than one tennis racquet, a tube of balls and maybe a pair of small shoes, then a shoulder bag might be appropriate. If, however, they play tennis regularly, then you should probably look at getting a larger bag with two straps and two or more compartments.

Tennis Racquet Bags in Calgary

Wilson Team III 6R Bag
Our experts can help you pick the right tennis bag.
Racquet Network offers Calgary’s largest selection of tennis bags. We stock racquet bags at all price points including budget, recreational and professional. We also stock racquet bags for all ages: children, teens and adults.

Unfortunately, due to limited space in our store, we are not able to stock everything that is available in our warehouse. Therefore we encourage customers who are looking for a very specific bag to order it through the website and then choose SHIP TO STORE FOR LOCAL PICKUP. This ensures that customers who are looking for something very specific are able to get exactly what they want without wasting a trip.

If you are not sure exactly what you want or need, come into our store for consultation with an expert. Our experts know a lot about bags and they will be able to help you out with some practical advice that is specific to how you will be using your bag.

For example, if you are playing outdoors where it can be dirty, you will probably want a dark bag. You will also want a bag with the straps on top so that the dirt from the ground does not transfer from the straps to your clothing. On the other hand, if you play indoors at a club, you will want a bag that is narrow enough to fit in your locker.

When it comes to bag selection, our in-store experts know lots of little things that most people can’t even imagine. So rather than standing in the aisle at a box store trying to guess what you might need, come in and see us. We can help you find the right bag for your specific needs.

Where to Find Wilson Racquet Bags in Calgary

How do you know that a tennis bag is right for you?
You find yourself standing in front of a tennis bag display at a large sporting goods box store. This looks nice … but why is it $140? This one looks the same, but it’s only $79.00. What’s the difference?

Bags are like everything else in life. You get what you pay for.

Cheap bags are cheap for a reason. Generally speaking, they are cheap because they are made of cheap materials: thin fabrics, nylon zippers, weak stitching and no padding where padding is required.

While they may seem like a bargain, cheap bags are rarely a bargain. In most cases, cheap racquet bags are a bad investment that doesn’t last very long.

Racquet Bags

BABOLAT PURE DRIVE RACQUET BAG X9
We stock a large selection of racquet bags for tennis, squash, and badminton
We stock a large inventory of racquet bags for tennis, squash, and badminton in our southwest Calgary store.

However, racquet bags are highly seasonal. Particular styles and colours sell out quickly and it is impossible for us to have all bags in stock in all colours at all times.

We advise customers who are looking for a particular bag to order it online and then choose SHIP TO STORE. We will email you when your bag is ready to pick up. If the bag you want is unavailable, we will cancel the order and issue a refund.

All brands change their racquet bags change every year. So a bag that was available in a particular colour or style one year will not be available the following year. However, we carry new colours/styles at all three price points every season.
