What is a racket and what is it used for?

The racket is a kind of bag made to measure for the storage and transport of rackets. This is because, due to the shape of the rackets, it would be very difficult to transport them in a bag that was not developed exclusively for this. In addition, some models can also be used to store other accessories related to the sport, such as socks and wrist pads.

Did you know: The first rackets of which we have records were documented in the Trattato del Giuco della Palle (Treatise on the Ball Game), written by Antonio Scaino in 1555. They were 150 cm long and were developed from a piece of plywood

They also help to conserve your equipment by protecting it from variations in temperature, impacts, dust and other factors that can result in damage to rackets. Next, we will present all the advantages that this item presents. We will also talk about the disadvantages.

  • Conservation of the equipment
  • Practicality
  • Possibility of carrying several important items for the game

What are the types of racket?

The most common racket is the one that looks like a side bag. Within this category there are variations in size as some models can hold more rackets than others. But in general, this type of racket bag has two side straps, a shorter one so that you can carry it with your hands and a longer one if you prefer to carry it on your shoulders.

There are also models in the shape of a backpack. Apparently this model is an ordinary backpack, but on the sides, where there should be pockets, there are spaces for the rackets. Some models also have internal space for the rackets.

Finally, there is a much simpler version that is a little bigger than the racket. It is a "glove" for this accessory. Because its size is almost identical to that of the racket, this model cannot accommodate any other accessory.

What to take in the racket?

The main item that should be carried in a racquetrack, as the name implies, is the racquet. However, sports played with rackets also require the use of other equipment such as socks, shoes, clothing, balls and suitable racket pads.

It is also important to stay hydrated during matches, so it is essential to carry a small bottle of water. In other words, apart from the racket, there are several items that a player needs to carry and the racket case holds them all.

Number of compartments

If you need to carry more than one racket you will need to buy a larger model, but more than that, you should opt for a version with several compartments. The amount of compartments is related to the amount of rackets you will be able to store in the racket.

Material

As mentioned above, it is common for players to carry several rackets in their racket, accessories used during matches and some personal items. Therefore, it is necessary that the material of the product be resistant and of quality, in order to support all this weight.

Prefer rackets made of 100% polyester and finished in carbon

That is why we recommend that you prefer racket rackets made of 100% polyester and with carbon finishes. Furthermore, depending on what you intend to take with you, you should also opt for those with thermal insulation. Finally, to keep your belongings even more protected, choose waterproof racket pads.

Indicated modality

The racket is an item used in various sports, and in each one it has specific characteristics. There are small variations in width and length, but they must be considered. This is because, although most racket rackets can be used with all types of rackets, some are made exclusively for a specific type of racket. It is therefore necessary to pay attention to this detail.
