A Look Inside My Tennis Bag

If there is one thing that I am especially terrible at, it is cleaning out my handbags. Much like the drawers in my house, they are full of things I really should have already thrown away. If you delve inside any of the bags stored in my wardrobe you are likely to find most, if not all, of the following:

  • A number of scrunched up receipts
  • An old lip balm
  • At least one hard boiled sweet (probably stuck to the lining of the bag)
  • A couple of tampons
  • Coins (usually pennies from my last trip to the UK)
  • A USB key
  • About 5 or 6 biros, none of which work…

I am a bit better when it comes to my tennis bags, probably because they are new and I have only really used them to go back and forth to tennis or workouts. In fact I am quite proud of the contents of my Idawen tennis bags. So what’s inside my tennis bag?

So in the end I improvised and created my own by combining a standard cheap camera tripod with the head of a selfie stick, e voilà!

So tell me, what’s inside your tennis bag?

I laughed it off and waited for the people around me to do the same, but I was instead met with an embarrassed silence. I hurriedly picked up my racket and carried on training, trying my best to keep control of the racket for the rest of the hour.
