I was inspired to play tennis, not by the game of tennis itself, but by the fashion of tennis. I needed an excuse to wear cute tennis clothes! Just as every player has a distinct game style, tennis players also have unique ways of expressing themselves in their fashion on court. From knee high socks, to brightly colored dresses and shoes, catsuits, ballerina inspired dresses, and the classic pleated skirts, tennis players definitely have unlimited ways of highlighting their personal style.

The fashion of tennis has evolved immensely over the course of the professional sport. In the 1900s, women's tennis fashion consisted of long restrictive all white uniform like skirt and shirt combinations. Today, the trend is vibrantly colored, highly technical and high-fashion inspired sporty looks. The fashion of tennis will continue to evolve to be more trendy as the sport grows a broader fan base.

I have always enjoyed expressing myself through my clothing and accessories, especially on the tennis court. I truly believe that vibrant colors positively affect our moods and have the power to uplift our spirits. When I set out to find a tennis bag to carry my racquet, all I found were basic tennis bags in black -- of very boring form and function. I was not inspired by these bland bags at all, so I decided to make them better, bolder and more vibrant! I wanted to create a tennis bag that would be trendy yet allow me to connect with what inspires me most: nature, flowers and vibrant colors. We created deucekat with this vision in mind:

BOLD

VIBRANT

FLAMBOYANT

IN YOUR FACE

CREATIVE

EYE-CATCHING

BRIGHT…

I take great pride in having sketched and painted all of the fabric designs in the deucekat collection. I believe our bags are very special because of this, as the fabric designs are special and are not pulled from a generic mass produced roll of fabric. Never say never, but if you are looking for a black tennis bag, you will not likely find it in the deucekat product line-up. Find your winning flowers, marbled succulents and bold tropical bird prints all right here. We have created bag designs that allow you to express yourself through your tennis accessories and your boldness on court!

Tennis is energy! We invite you share our vision and style of vibrant tennis.
