Best Answer

Women wear skirts while playing tennis because it has become a tradition over the years to do so. When tennis was first played women wore skirts, so it just stuck with the sport. Although, nowadays they are usually skorts (skirts with shorts attached) to make things more appropriate since the length is very short. This is what I was told. If it's not true...sorry :) I hope I helped!

Why female tennis players wear skirts?

It obviously is easier to run with a skirt than with shorts or pants. The legs are more free and less constricted. The tennis skirts have an attached "panty", if you will. A bonus is some of them have side pockets to conceal extra tennis balls. Any sport can make you sweat and tennis is no different. So the cooler the outfit, the better.
