Women's Skirts & Skorts
Women’s Tennis Apparel Has Come a Long Way
Women have been playing tennis in floor-length skirts and dresses for over 150 years, but it wasn’t until the 1960’s that the shorter, women’s skirts tennis apparel was seen on the courts. These tennis miniskirts have continued to evolve, and now women’s tennis skorts, and/or, skirts come with built-in panties, compartments to hold tennis balls, and are constructed of durable fabric that provides for both high-performance and a stylish appearance.
Tennis Skirts vs. Tennis Shorts
Although women can play effectively in both tennis skirts and tennis shorts, skirts are usually the desired choice, as they allow for greater flexibility of movement over tennis shorts, which can feel restrictive to some women. Women’s tennis shorts are usually referred to as compression shorts due to their form-fitting design, and their similarity to bicycle shorts.
Tennis Skirts vs. Tennis Skorts
Tennis skorts are shorts that are designed to look like skirts, with an overlaying panel of fabric, or skirt, around the garment. Terminology for tennis skirts can change from brand to brand; e.g. Adidas women’s apparel line refers to its skirts with built-in shorts as skorts, while Nike provides both skirts with built-in shorts and skorts.
It’s important to note that not all tennis skirts come with a built-in undergarment. In this case, a skirt will need to be paired with compression shorts or other type of shorts for coverage on the court.
Selecting the Best Women’s Skirts Tennis Apparel
As with any athletic clothing, tennis skirts come in different materials, sizes, and features. Here are key takeaways when selecting the best women’s skirts tennis apparel.
• Make sure to select material that dries quickly, and provides good ventilation. Avoid 100% cotton fabrics, and opt for polyester or poly/cotton blends to keep you dry and comfortable.
• Pleated skirts are considered the classic tennis skirt cut, but pleats also mean more fabric, so this skirt will be heavier. A-line or straight line cut skirts will be lighter.
• Tennis skirts come with either elastic or banded waists, so make sure to choose the waistband that’s most comfortable and functional for you.
