Many tennis players will know how important it is to find a comfortable pair of shorts that hold tennis balls effectively while playing. In this article, we bring you a selection of tennis shorts and skorts that can be worn on their own, or comfortably under a tennis dress or looser fitting shorts. Having tried and tested many of these, we are confident you will find your perfect pair.
1. Nike Women’s Flex Short Sport Shorts
Designed with Nike’s Dry Fit technology, these shorts are made for sweat resistance, style, and comfort. Available in a variety of colours, including black, white, and purple, they will ensure you can play at your best whilst looking and feeling great as you move around the court.
2. HEAD Women’s Club Basic Skort
The fixed inner pants on these Head tennis shorts provide a snug fit for keeping tennis balls secure and the side slits encourage movement and keep players cool. Available in red, white, navy, and black, these are a good selection for players looking for a classic, timeless style.
3. Adidas Women’s T19 Skort
This is one of the most popular items from Adidas’s women’s tennis clothes range. The fitted shorts and skirt are made with anti-humidity fabric and an elasticated waistband providing maximum comfort and tennis ball security. Available in a range of colours and at a good price point.
4. Nike Women’s Pro Flex 2 in 1 Shorts
Nike Flex fabric stretches with your body, helping you get the most out of your performance – without getting in the way. The built-in shorts have a slim fit to provide support as you move through the ball. We love the exposed elastic waistband which provides a stay-put fit and a smooth feel. Mesh on the sides lets air flow to help keep you cool and as sweat-free as possible. They are only available in black, however a design this cool and ticking so many boxes need only come as one option.
5. Under Armour Women’s mid-rise Compression Gym Shorts
A perfect short for wearing under your tennis dress. We are also big fans of Nike’s Pro Fit shorts. The fabric is super light which provides coverage and support without weighing you down or making you feel too hot. Whilst at the same time, the tight fit hugs the hips and outer thighs providing compression and keeping tennis balls secure. Under Armour’s four-way stretch construction moves in every direction and the anti-odour technology prevents the growth of odour causing microbes. Available in an extensive range of colours. Our favourites are black and navy.
