I carry my racket separately, and in my little rucksack I carry two cans of new or newish balls, wrist sweat bands, wallet, phone, keys, and a water bottle.

I play at courts nearby, and then go home after, dont have a need to carry that much stuff to be honest

I am amazed at the amount of stuff people carry. is it all necessary?

Do you expect to be stranded on a desert island somehow during or after the match?

Most of these people are talking about what they take to tournaments / etc when you could be playing 3-4 matches over the course of a day.

At least I hope so because frankly unless your a 5.0+ player you really don't need most of that stuff.

Babolat Team Line 12 pack

- 3 Racquets - Pure Drive GTs
- Reel of TournaGrip XL
- pack of VS Overgrips
- Assorted Babolat Custom Dampeners
- Usually extra shirt, shorts, and compression shorts
- 2-3 extra pairs of socks
- 2-3 extra Nike Featherlight hats
- 2 pairs of Nike CB 2.3s
- Assorted Wristbands
- Towel
- Exercise Band
- Camcorder
- Gorillapod Tripod for Camcorder
- First Aid Kit (Cold Compresses, Kinesis Tape, Elastic Tape/Bandage, Baby Powder, Advil, Scissors, etc...)
- Chapstick
- Sunscreen
- Sunglasses
- Water bottles
- Multiple packs of GU Roctane
- EAS Myoplex Lite Bars
- Gum
- Moleskin Notebook and Pen
- 1-2 cans of balls...

...that's about it. FWIW, I have used my first aid kit twice in the last month..not on myself, but others. One guy cracked himself in the face with his racquet and a gal on our mixed team severely strained/pulled a calf muscle during a match. I'd really recommend building up a kit and keeping it stocked. I never would have imagined how useful cold compresses are...never had a need for them before. :)
