Bags often get overlooked when tennis players walk into a store. Most players search for bags that match the color of their racquet or their tennis apparel.

These three major factors will assist you in picking the right bag that could last you several years. Below are our top choices of bags released in 2018. They will range in size and color, but will not lack in technology upgrades.
