Solo practice with squash

Starting to play squash
For a sport like squash, where you have to bring a racket, a good fitting bag is recommended. A squash bag is an important part of your squash equipment. Not only does it easily transport your belongings, but it also offers protection to your squash racquets. A good squash bag will help you maintain your racket(s) and other gear.

Protection of your squash racket(s)
Squashtas and supplies
A squash racket is very sensitive to weather influences such as low and high temperatures. The string of a racket can dry out and snap faster. Many squash bags are equipped with a thermal lining to protect the materials against these influences. In this way, the tension remains optimal.

In an ordinary sports bag a racket usually does not fit in its entirety and the handle of the squahsracket often protrudes. This makes your racket a lot less protected, such as against rainwater. You’ll notice this when you’re playing squash. As a result, the grip on the rink can no longer absorb moisture. The handle of your racket is also much more vulnerable when it protrudes. If other bags or stuff are put on top of or against it, there can be a break in your racket. In addition, large temperature fluctuations are also not desirable. Did you know that the grip and the string of your racket can dry out due to high temperatures? Chances are that your racket has little or no grip after that and the racket loses its control and power.

All these negative consequences can be remedied with a good squash bag. The thermolayer in a squash bag counteracts the temperature fluctuations and the size of these bags is large enough to be able to store a squash racket in its entirety. This will protect your racket much better and it will last longer.

Better for your squash shoes
A good bag is also recommended for your shoes. A professional squash bag is equipped with ventilation so that all your squash gear, including your shoes, can evaporate after exercise. By playing squash intensively, your shoes get wet. If your shoes don’t evaporate, they stay wet and that is detrimental to the line of your squash shoes. The result is that your shoes need to be replaced sooner.

Everything at your fingertips
It is also very nice to have a good bag where you can store everything neatly, so you won’t forget to bring anything with you. Many squash bags have handy shoe compartments and many small extra compartments for accessories such as sweatbands, valuables and squash grips. Very handy, because that way all things have their own place and they also stay neat. A squash bag is an ideal bag to have everything at hand!

Squash sports bags are available in different models, sizes, colours etc. What size do you need? How to choose the best bag for you?

What should I pay attention to when buying a squash bag?
When you are going to buy a new squash bag, it is sometimes difficult to make a choice. It is useful to pay attention to a number of things like the size of the bag, the number of rackets you can carry in it, the number of separate compartments and the carrying system. Also how often you squash is a point of attention that you can take into consideration. Of course, it does matter whether you only use the bag once a week or more often. I will explain the points of attention for you below. If you know roughly what criteria your bag should meet, it will be easier to find the perfect squashtasks.

The size
Squash bags are available in different sizes, for the avid recreational player or for the active match player. The exact size you need is mainly determined by the number of rackets, the shoe size and the amount of other stuff you want to take with you. The right size determines what you need to bring to the squash court.

Sports outfit with squash bag
Squash bags are available in different sizes: 3, 6, 8/9, 10/12, backpacks and duffels. Are you looking for a squash bag that can hold your racket, bottle and some other materials? Then a backpack or a 1-compartment bag is sufficient. Would you like to be able to bring a pair of squash shoes with you? For example, a 3-pocket squash bag is recommended.

It is advised to choose a slightly larger squash bag than you actually need, so you don’t clog up and the squash bag will stay good for longer.

The shoe size
Do you think it’s important that the squashtas has a separate compartment your shoes? Then it’s good to know that your shoes are one of the bigger things in the bag. Don’t choose a bag that is too small if you have a large shoe size. Not all squash bags also have a thermal layer. So pay attention to this when making your choice.

The carrying system
The carrying system may vary from one squash bag to another. There are bags with one shoulder strap, but also with two shoulder straps.
