Why racket bags are the best gifts for tennis players

by Kristin November 11, 2018

Know someone that loves tennis (and/or other racket sports) but you’re at a loss as to what to get them? Step away from the rackets and warm up gear and consider a much more unique and thoughtful option: A racket bag.

Here’s why the right racket bag could be the perfect gift you've been looking for:

1. They are much more likely to be a success than other tennis accessories

Rackets, strings and other types of equipment are a very personal choice based entirely on feel. Which means: They need to be play-tested.

If you opt for a tennis racket, they will almost certainly return it and find something they actually like. And if they don't return it (out of politeness), they may be left with something that isn't actually a good fit for their game.

Thus, it’s a risky proposition to go the route of blindly selecting an accessory for tennis (or other racket sports like squash, badminton, padel or real tennis) and hoping you’ve magically nailed the specific item they love and use.

2. They can be unique

There are different kinds of tennis bags. You're probably familiar with the traditional, heavily-branded, racket-shaped bags and maybe the flashy fashion bags that only fit one racket.

But there are also unique bags like those made by Epirus which are created by expert tennis players working with a renowned designer.

Each item in the collection is handmade in small batches or limited runs, so you can be confident the recipient of your gift will have something truly out of the ordinary.

3. They can be versatile

Even if the recipient doesn't end up playing much tennis or other racket sports, they can still get a lot of use out of their bag elsewhere in their lives. Epirus bags are understated (and not racket-shaped!) so they can be used both on and off the court.

Some Epirus owners have adopted their 24 hour bag as their go-to carry on bag for all their flights. Others take their Borderless Backpack or Transition Tote to work everyday, whether they have rackets in it or not, and find it to be the perfect complement to their commute.

4. They can be timeless

Racket and string technology changes fast but these bags are timeless. People often keep the same bag for years - making your gift more meaningful. Grips, shoes, apparel all wear out rapidly, meaning they're forgotten about quickly.

Epirus bags not only have a modern design and span all seasons, but are made to stand the test of time and backed by a 105% guarantee.

5. They are tailored to your gift recipient's lifestyle

You can choose a style of bag that suits your recipients lifestyle perfectly, which is always the sign of an amazing gift.The backpack is a great option for cyclists or gear minimalists who want a compact size. The 24 hour bag is both perfect for daily commuting as well as carry on luggage for a quick getaway. The Transition Tote is ideal for someone that dedicates time to both racket sports and yoga. And the weekend bags are made for seamless transitions between business, tennis and travel.

It's an amazing feeling to have your gift buying sorted in advance, so check out all the options in the Epirus collections now
