Tennis Shorts

Be your most agile on the court in adidas tennis shorts, available in a variety of inseam lengths and colors. Stay dry with moisture-wicking AEROREADY technology.

Tennis shorts

Shorts are the classic choice of outfit for the game, and the adidas collection offers a variety of tennis shorts for both men and women, with a range of classic black or white styles and some coloured ones for the less traditional player. Whether you prefer a regular fit that gives a modern look without restricting movement, a tight fit for better support or a combination of both, you can rest assured that you’ll find comfort and protection in these adidas tennis shorts. This even includes UV protection to defend your skin from the harshness of the sun on hot days.

Technologies that support you

When you’re out on the court, having supportive tennis shorts that offer you a good level of comfort is of the utmost importance to ensure a better performance. Thanks to the adidas technologies that have been incorporated into this collection, you can stay dry through the use of moisture-wicking and quick-drying fabrics, and keep cool in fabric equipped with ventilation technology. To keep you comfortable and add support, built-in briefs or short tights are added to some styles, while stretchy fabric gives you the ability to move easily in every direction.

Details for a better performance

As you go through the adidas tennis shorts collection looking for your favourite pair, don’t forget to look at the details that might make a difference to your performance. Choose a pair with slide-in pockets if you want to be able to store a few tennis balls during the game, a style with a drawcord elastic around the waist for a more secure fit, or tennis shorts with mesh inserts for added ventilation and better breathability. And for a better performance for the planet, choose a style made using recycled polyester or nylon, helping reduce waste and emissions while performing your best in the game.

When you’re on the court, the way you look is as important as you feel. It may not be Wimbledon, but you do want to look your best during a game of tennis. When you look great, you’ll perform better – it’s that simple. You want to be able to feel comfortable and supported, as well as enjoying freedom of movement while you play. With adidas you can expect the best design when it comes to tennis shorts. We have a range of designs for both men and women, as well as children, featuring handy details like ball pockets, drawcord waists and in-built shorts.

Built with moisture management

You’ll find that a pair of adidas tennis shorts is much thinner and more breathable than other sports or training shorts, offering you a streamlined fit. These technologically advanced shorts protect you from harsh weather conditions and manage moisture to make your games more comfortable. With the help of Climalite fabric, many of our tennis shorts help to wick your sweat away from your body so that you stay dry and comfy.

Be match-ready

Whether you’re playing on an indoor or an outdoor court, you need shorts that will keep you cool. For warm match days, invest in a pair of adidas tennis shorts with Climacool technology. The fast-drying material provides ventilation by allowing cool air to flow in as your body heat escapes. Not only will you feel drier and ready for your match, the intelligent fabric will feel lighter on your body and enhance your range of movement. With these performance-enhancing materials, your shorts will help you play better for longer. You’ll find that our mens tennis shorts offer a loose fit and are longer, while our womens range features integrated short tights for extra supportive coverage.

Tennis Shorts Frequently Asked Questions

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.
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.
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.
