Looking for a bike bag to hold tennis gear

Hi Everyone,

 I am an older person who just purchased an electric bike with a hub motor.I play tennis and want to bike to and from the tennis courts. It is by bike 20-30 minutes from my home. I have 1 tennis racquet and balls and purse. Does anyone  have a suggestion on a tennis bag, tote or anything else to carry these items back and forth to the tennis courts. There is a flat back on the back of the bike that I could put something on.  Or should I buy a front basket or rear basket or just a bungee????

Waiting for suggestions. HELP!!!!

Hi @karenm - Thanks for reaching out. It's exciting to hear about your new bike and the plans you have for it! 

One solution could be a front basket, such as the Electra Quick Release Basket. It is 12.5" wide, which should be just enough to fit the width of a tennis racket. Without knowing which specific bike you have, we cannot guarantee it will fit, but the mounting bracket included with that basket is adjustable and fits most standard handlebars. If you are concerned about things tumbling around while riding, you could use Voile Rack Straps or a Topeak Cargo Net to keep things in place.

For storage on the back, the type of bike you have will impact what your options are. If you tell us which model your bike is, we can help you with some more specifics that will fit your setup. There are lots of options, though most of them will require getting a rear rack system to attach either a rear basket or panniers.

Hopefully this helps!
