    I was thinking today if it's possible to sew two tennis bags together? You could just easily take out the sides of the bags and sew them together (I think that's how to do it). :confused:

    Instead of having only a maximum of 8 racquets, I could have a maximum of 16 racquets! :cool:

    I would love to have this to be sewn together with an identical bag.

    Also, would there be any point to it? Do you think the backpack straps could support the conjoined bags?

    I applaud you for your creativity, but honestly, I seriously doubt that you can sew two racket bags together with factory precision and durability.

    Thanks :)

    But couldn't I just take it to a someone who is good at crafts like this?

    I wonder what the folks at Micheal's or Hobby Lobby would say haha.

    "Sir, we don't do things like that".

    The question is "is it possible?"?? Ummm, why wouldn't it be possible, did you imagine? I assumed the question was "would there be any point to it?"

    Okay, would there be a point to it?

    I just wanted an opinion. Yes, I did imagine it, but it may also be not possible.. :)

    If you were to cut out one side of both bags and attach them together using a factory level sewing machine with like 5 passes using polyester thread, you might be able to :)

    Wouldn't recommend you carry a 16 racquet bag full of stuff, back problems are going to kill you.

    Still early in the year but already a great contender for weirdest question of the year.
    Why would you want to sew them together? If you buy a 9 racketbag and it isn't big enough just buy an extra duffel bag. You can wear on on each shoulder and I think it would look better than a homemade 16/18 racketbag imo :D.

    If you do however plan to sew them together I would really like to see sone pictures though :D.

    I hope I win.. :cool:

    Because, I love my Becker bag, and it wouldn't make sense to spend $65+ for the same bag that can fit 2 more racquets.

    I hate duffel bags. You have to stuff your racquets like putting clothes in a suitcase. Plus, the items besides the racquets can scratch them up and/or if you place your racquets at the bottom of the bag, you would have to take everything out again... :-|

    I don't want to ruin the bags myself, I could just ask a local crafting store to do it I guess... :-?

    If this thing works, I would love to send pictures!
