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.
End of the world is coming ... 2012 is coming, you'd better be prepared
What I've got in a Fischer 12 pack for start of Spring Season:
2 MG Prestige Mids
Reel of Wilson Pro overgrips (for other guys on the team)

sweat shirt (for when it's cold)
Heavier jacket (for when it's cold)

Bladder replacement? I mean, people don't actually grow bladders made from metal.
Maybe ordinary people don't, but SUPER PEOPLE like ME do!
I carry bagels and bread-sticks, but only if you're a 3.0, cuz 3.5's are too good for me.
Whatever I need to drink

...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.
