Totes for your tennis game and beyond


Nothing combines fashion and function quite like a quality handbag.  Bags have become an extension of our personalities, careers, and activities. The very best however, are the ones that can transition through the day enabling you to look chic without changing it out through the day. Cross-functionality is key.

For me, a day of rest and relaxation means hitting the court which means I need something roomy that can hold a racquet, a light jacket, sunblock, visor and more. That bag then needs to go to the market, out to lunch and maybe to the pool. The solution is a tote. Here are a few I’m loving right now:

The Multi-Tasker—The Maggie Mather Tennis Tote

If you’re looking for a bag that does as much as you do, look no further. It’s got a front compartment that holds two tennis rackets—and that’s just the beginning. Its main compartment and multiple pockets give you a place for everything so whatever you’ll need for the day, just throw it in! Plus, the tote is made from the highest quality canvas that is both water repellent and lightweight, so toss it over your shoulder in any weather. You can register to win one right here.

There’s nothing better than a day at the beach (or pool) —except for maybe the perfect beach bag! Cool off after a match by heading straight for the water, and bring the Scout Original Deano with you. Its simple, spacious interior leaves you plenty of room to store your beach towels, books, snacks, whatever you require. The pattern choices are endless, but  the starfish or coral print are of course perfect.
