    Just wondering what size bag you use for your team. I have both a 6 and a 12 and i cant tell which i want. I was wondering if anyone uses a 12 raquet bag on the school team? thanks

    please only vote if you are on a HS team or what size bag you had when you were on your HS team, thanks

    Well i have a twelve and a six, but use the 12 for big matches when I bring all my racquets and the 6 for when I'm practicing or other stuff.

    I would think a 12 pack is a bit much for HS. I mean, you have to put it somewhere in school, and generally speaking, they don't fit into lockers (or at least lockers in my school). Last season I was restricted to a racket cover (not even my 3pack fit into the lockers).

    i know i could get my 12 into my locker, although it would be very tight. Just wondering if it is worth carring around the bulk. I would use the 12 as i like it much better but, if i am the only Hs kid with a 12 i will use the 6.

    My Wilson Team backpack holds everything I need. I can fit my two ProStaff Tour 95s, my Barricades, clothes, hat, extra grips, string, towel, Nalgene, iPod, keys, wallet...you name it! The bag does fit in a locker at my school, but I just keep it in my car.

    Right behind you, but i'll be gone before you fini
    12. It doesn't fit in my locker, not even close. I have that babolat team 12 pack...and it probably holds more than 12. It only holds that many if you don't use the _large_ middle pouch for racquets, otherwise it holds about 8 tops. I use that middle pouch to keep everything.


    Storage? I keep it in a teacher's locked closet. He's a cool guy, and I trust him. You can try keeping it in your coach's classroom, or ask if the tennis team could get a place to keep their stuff.

    i bring 3 racquets usually and i have a 6 pack. i easily fit everything i need in my bag, and what i put in it is EXACTLY the same as your list. So unless you have 2 wilson ncode n1 force racquets and size 18 shoes, it will fit in a 6 pack.

    My bag can hold 9 if there's nothing in it, probably 10 at max. Why doesn't anyone put 10 up there, it's always 6 , 9 , and 12 , lol.

    i went to the Ymca yesterday to play Round Robin and before i started i noticed a few college guys playing. Actually it was a match. They were very good most of them 5.0+ players. Almost all of them had 12 packs. I am still not sure which i want to keep. I can actually fit my 6 pack into my 12 pack. The one thing i did notice was when i has my 12 people said i looked like i was a real serious player. I think i am going to wait until practice starts and then see what everyone elese uses and make my decision from there.
