Let’s face it, you treat your tennis bag kind of like a mobile locker. Lots of things get thrown in there only to be lost forever. But there are some items that you should really clear some room for. Along with used tennis balls, most tennis players will have the standard equipment in their bags: extra strings, overgrips, dampeners, and a towel. Here are 5 things that you probably don’t have in your bag, but should.
5. Roller Massage
This handy dandy little massage stick really helps with recovery time by stimulating deep muscle tissue.
4. Portable Ice Massager
Great for not just icing injuries, but to keep you cool during a hot day match or relief on your aching muscles. It stays frozen for up to 10 hours!
3. Blister Bands
All that side to side, front to back movement takes a toll on your poor feet. Which means one thing: blisters! We’ve all played with blisters on our feet before and it is no fun. When you need them, and you will at some point, you’ll be glad you had them.
