If you are starting to get into tournament play, you'll quickly find that the good old typical duffle bag isn't roomy enough for all the gear.
After all, you'll be there all day, or maybe even longer. So you'll be packing shoes, a towel, water, paddles, maybe a change of shirt or two, a jacket, and who knows what!
That's when a Tournament Bag serves the purpose, and the Tyrol Tournament Bag is purpose built for this.
Tyrol Tournament Bag
This bag comes in some great colours.
You can carry the Tyrol Tournament bag or wear it as a backpack.
If you are flying, this bag is carry-on capable, and I've even been able to carry a smaller laptop computer in it.
There's a nice side storage compartment for your favourite paddles.
The bag also features two smaller compartments to store accessories and whatnot, a zippered compartment inside to store wallet, keys, and valuables, and at the end a ventilated shoe compartment.
There's a neat insulated side pocket you can use for lunch and snacks, and a zippered compartment on the top that's perfect for a cell phone.
It even has a clip so you can hang it on a fence at the courts should you wish to keep it off the ground.
I love the Tyrol Tournament Bag. I think it's price is great for what you get. Some paddle companies are charging $300 bucks or more for a tournament bag, yet Tyrol makes theirs available in Canada for half of that.
Fun Fact: Even though we see Tyrol shoes being advertised on the PPA tour and worn by some use pros, Tyrol is a CANADIAN company based in Waterloo Ontario.
Tyrol's management also founded the Canadian Professional Pickleball League.
