I'm leaving for California to train in a few weeks, and I'll obviously be taking me racquets with me. Although I've traveled with racquets before, it was mostly to places like South and North Carolina, where I could drive. I'll be flying to CA, so I was wondering, can you carry on a racquet bag? Or do you have to check it in? I'd like to carry it on as the stuff will probably end up getting tossed around a lot otherwise. Has anyone had some experience with this?

I flew to San Francisco over spring break, and they allowed me to carry on my rackets, so i dont see why you couldnt.

I have traveled with my tennis bag on a plane several times to Florida, Hawaii, etc. No problem at all to bring it as a carry-on (as long as it fits in overhead bin).

I've flown into Palm Springs a few times with carry on tennis bags. And there are many others too. And my racquets are weapons of mass destruction ha!!

Good to know..I'm flying into Jacksonville to visit my bro on Jekyll Island. Hoping to take my 3 pack onboard. Don't like to be parted from my racquets.

Considering the money i've spent on racquets, i don't really want them just floating around in some cargo hold. I'd ship them before i did that.

They went through that before they were yours.
