Frequently Asked Questions about Tennis Shorts

What type of shorts are good for tennis?

Breathable shorts that allow for range of motion are good for tennis. The best tennis shorts let you make deep lunges and wide lateral movements without restriction. They have moisture-wicking technologies like adidas AEROREADY that help keep you dry and comfortable. Lightweight fabric is important, too, especially in hot weather. Look for shorts with deep pockets, so you can keep extra balls handy and not worry about them falling out. If you like muscle compression and extra coverage, choose tennis shorts that have built-in briefs or short tights.

Do tennis players wear compression shorts?

Some tennis players wear compression shorts, but it comes down to personal preference. Compression shorts with technology like adidas Techfit offer both muscle support and coverage. Some players find that the muscle support helps keep muscles fresh and ready to lunge and also helps reduce soreness. The added coverage is nice for all the quick, widespread movements. Other players prefer to play with looser-fitting shorts.

How long should tennis shorts be?

When considering how long your tennis shorts should be, keep mobility in mind. Usually tennis shorts come in 7-, 9- and 10-inch inseams. A 7-inch inseam, which falls around mid-thigh, offers the least restriction and also the least coverage. A 10-inch inseam might feel a little more restrictive but is good for added coverage. A 9-inch inseam is a common choice, striking a balance between the 7- and 10-inch lengths.
