Babolat Team Line Maxi Tennis Backpack

Babolat Team Line Maxi Tennis Backpack

Babolat Team Line Maxi Tennis Backpack

Babolat Team Line Maxi Tennis Backpack – I have this bag and LOVE it!!!! I really can’t say enough good things about it – and neither can all the people who compliment me on it every time I get on the court. I carry it around the world (as my carry on bag) and it holds everything. Three racquets, laptop, shoes, water bottle and tons of other stuff. The bag has lots of pockets, both inside and outside and, as it gets pretty heavy, the waist and chest straps make it so much easier and lighter to carry. My racquet is very well protected (especially by the grip cover and the Thermo Guard 2.0 compartment) and I can put this bag in an airplane overhead compartment or even under the seat if I remove the racquets.

The Babolat tennis backpack has two very minor design flaws. The laptop compartment strap is too short for a 15" laptop, as it’s designed more for an iPad. This doesn’t really matter because all laptops will still fit in the padded compartment and be protected, but you can’t use the strap to lock them in. The second minor flaw is the outside top pocket zips all the way around, meaning you can’t open it while the backpack is on one shoulder and you’ll have to remove it to use that pocket. But there are plenty of other pockets to use on the bag.

This video below gives a great overview of the bag and all its awesome features.

Choosing the Best Tennis Bags Tips

Some things to consider when looking for the perfect tennis bag for your gear:

  • Do you carry the bag all day, such as on a subway, or to travel. Or do you generally just throw it in the truck of your car and carry it to the court?
  • Do you need to carry your laptop with your tennis equipment?
  • Do you prefer a backpack style, tote or tournament type bag?
  • How many racquets do you want to carry?
  • How protected do you want your racquets (if very protected, make sure to choose a bag with special heat protection or padding in the racquet compartment)?
  • Which player’s name do you want on your bag? For a die hard Nadal fan, you can’t very well carry a Djokovich backpack, right?

There are no shortage of amazing tennis tennis bags from which to choose, and you can see how much thought has gone into the design of each of these bags, all targeted to tennis players. Whether you are a weekend club player, a beginner, a tournament player – or a wanna be tournament player, like myself, who travels and plays all over the world, there’s a definitely a perfect tennis bag for you!
