The Guide to the Perfect Tennis Skirt

The Guide to the Perfect Tennis Skirt

When it comes to finding the perfect tennis skirt, it’s important to look at things like movement, use and fashion that fit your style on and off the court. When it comes to silhouette, you will typically see one of four popular styles:
  1. Pleated
Great for moving around on the court, with all that movement, make sure you go for build-in shorts (with ball pockets)!
TIP – look for a higher waisted skirt for good coverage and support

2. A-line
Comfortable snug fit at waistband with a flattering gradual looser fit as you get to bottom seam
    TIP – Perfect for tucking in your top, so don’t be afraid to try out a different waistband with color for a pop of vibrancy
    3. Straight
    For the practical player, lots of these skirts come in beautiful core colors like navy, black and white
        TIP – this silhouette often crosses over for walking/ running multi-use
        4. Capris
        Skirt + capris = skapris! The perfect combination for someone looking to cover up more for sun protection or cooler seasonal play.
            TIP – Capris don’t have shorts underneath, so make sure you look for pockets!
            Material-wise, top selling tennis skirts usually come with polyester/spandex fabrication as they hold up well to activity and repeated washes.
            PRO TIP! Always search for skirts with built-in shorts aka skorts! (balls, or even keys, credit cards for off court activity) and always check for sweat wicking fabric so you don’t worry about chafing. Every brand develops their own ‘technologies’ for their fabrications, so be sure to read technology descriptions and look for ‘wicking’ fabrics, designed to keep you dry and cool on the court.
            At EleVen, our proprietary technology was developed by Venus herself. Pro-Dri by EleVen provides quick-dry performance & superior breathability.

            Fun fact, Venus changed the game in tennis skirts when designing the EleVen tennis skirt as all our skirts feature TWO ball pockets on a skirt. Game changer. Created by a tennis legend with true function in mind. Double pockets is optimal for lefties and righties alike!
