I am looking for a tennis bag. I need it to be a backpack style bag (so that I can ride a bicycle while wearing it without worrying about it rubbing against the wheel while seated or falling between myself and the seat when standing). It needs to be able to hold...
1 tennis racket
tennis balls (probably like a small net bag of them - maybe 10 to 25 balls)
1 shaker bottle (roughly the size of a 1 liter bottle of water)
1 gallon jug of water
cellphone and wallet
1 bicycle lock
weight belt, wraps, gloves, and knee wraps
The reason I need this is because there are tennis courts right next to my gym so I often like to play tennis right after lifting. Also, with gas prices through the roof and rising I bought a bicycle that I plan on riding to both places. My house is roughly 20-30 mins by bike from the gym/courts so I need a bag that can hold everything I need for both at once.
I have looked online and saw a few promising bags.. but unfortunately nothing is descriptive enough to let me know if it will work and the waiting for a bag to come, trying it out to realize it doesn't work, and having to deal with whatever return policies isn't what I want to have to do, so I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on bags that could handle all of this.
Thanks alot. I did find a bag that should work. Not only are they descriptive on the site, but I was able to use their 800 number and talk to someone who was very helpful and actually looked at a couple of the bags in the warehouse to confirm it should work.
Thanks again for the recommendation

Actually, in the end the bag that I had mentioned before was too small and I had to return it. In the end, I bought a laptop backpack at the local bestbuy and it works to fit everything. The front couple of pockets are in a section that is connected via clickable straps so I can put the racket in there and click it shut. Everything fits with space left over. Thanks for all your help everyone though. :D
