10 Fun Facts about US Open

  4. In 1975, the U.S. Open became the first Grand Slam tourney to have night games.
  5. A shot rang out during a game between John McEnroe and Eddie Dibbs’ match in 1977.

  6. Since 1978, matches have been on a hard-court surface covered with DecoTurf II.

What Makes Tennis Bags For Women And Girls Unique Part – I

Court Couture tennis bags for women and girls were designed with meticulous attention to detail, taking into account everything today’s stylish females would desire to have in a great tennis bag. Being a tennis player myself gives me a unique insight into the psyches of today’s modern tennis players, and it has often been commented that specific features Court Couture women’s tennis bags offer are missing in many other standard female tennis bags available today.

And this is where Court Couture is proud to announce their unique selling point. Court Couture’s tennis bags for women were created for those who want to play well while still looking good. With their unique style and fresh looks, Court Couture tennis bags for women and girls have swiftly become the most sought after women’s tennis bags in the US as well as many other countries.

Our tennis bags for women are multi-functional, with extra padding and ample inside storage; these are versatile women’s tennis bags which work perfectly as a laptop bag.

Tennis is so much more than ‘just a game.’ It is far more than that, especially so to today’s fashion conscious woman. To many women out there tennis is actually more of a lifestyle choice. To the women who regularly play it involves not only sport, but also fashion, socialization, food and wines. Every USTA match is followed with a party that includes this social aspect of enjoying fine food and wine with one’s peers.

These stylish female tennis players do not appreciate having a women’s tennis bag which is big, bulky and nylon and emblazoned with big and sometimes, tacky, logos.

Their appearance matters as much as their performance on the court.

The matching cosmetic case is great to carry on its own, or comes in useful when kept inside the tennis bags.

How To Stuff Your Tennis Bag?

Court Couture is a leading name for high quality designer tennis bags for women. Court Couture’s high quality materials and remarkable craftsmanship sets our tennis bags apart from the rest. Feel free to visit our online store at https://courtcouturetennis.com.

Women who are just starting out in playing tennis maybe having this usual beginner’s dilemma of how to stuff their tennis bags. For new tennis players, knowing the basic things to bring in a tennis match is important in order to be prepared well. Knowing what to bring for a tennis match simply makes sense – especially for women. Women tend to bring more things than men – but worry not, because women’s tennis bags are pretty easy to organize if you have the right tennis bag with you.

So how do you stuff your tennis bag? Here are some of the most important things to bring in your tennis bag and why:

Handy Towels – Handy towels are essentials. After a tennis match, you need to freshen up and take a shower. Fold up your towel neatly and seal it in a ziploc to keep it clean and fresh until the time you’re actually going to use it.

Racquets – Perhaps two racquets just in case something happens to the one you’re using. It’s the same as bringing a spare tire anywhere you drive your car. This is the most basic thing you need to bring and you need a bag that can store at least up to two racquets at the same time.

Snacks, Water or Energy Drink – Bring trail mix, bananas, power bars or anything that can help you keep your sugar levels balanced, keep you hydrated and help nourish your muscles. You will need energy-giving foods and replenishing liquids as you sweat and tire your muscles. Pack in some handy snacks unless you want to pay more for just a single chocolate bar inside the club!

Extra Clothes and Sunglasses – An extra shirt and undergarments are must-haves in your tennis bag. In general, if the weather is warm, you can bring in extra tennis skirt and if it’s cold out, leg warmers are recommended. Sunglasses are also excellent to bring when it’s too bright and sunny outdoors. Keep your sunglasses in a hard case to prevent it from breaking. Your clothes must be neatly folded and kept in a ziploc to keep them clean. This way, you also avoid your clothes from collecting stains from whatever else is inside your bag.

Toiletries and Makeup – Unless the hotel you’re staying in is not offering toiletries like soap, body wash, shampoo and lotion, you need to bring some. Keep your toiletries and makeup inside a makeup bag or pouch that will prevent anything from spilling all over your bag. Good makeup bags or pouches to be placed inside women’s tennis bags are made of materials that would prevent leaks if anything spills inside it.

Remember to bring just a few things but don’t forget the most important ones. One way to save yourself from shoulder pains and back aches is to bring a lightweight tennis bag that has everything you need inside it.

Where Have You Gathered The Inspiration For Your Designs?

The Best Tennis Bags for Women

Lightweight and Durable – When finding the perfect tennis bag for women, one needs to choose something that’s lightweight yet very durable. Court Couture women’s tennis bags use polyurethane material for the majority of the bags’ body. It’s a type of synthetic leather that can withstand daily exposure to different types of environmental changes. Unlike genuine leather that will be too high maintenance for a sport bag, polyurethane material is lightweight, highly durable and equally beautiful. Its appearance mimics the beauty of genuine leather yet it’s better in keeping up with the demands of an athletic lifestyle.

Style – Women love fashion and each one of us has our own personal fashion statement. No matter what you put on or use along with your outfits, you are making a statement. What you wear and how you carry yourself reflects how you are as a person. It is somehow true when they say that you are what you wear and when you carry yourself well, it shows through your confidence.
