Tennis Racquet Technology

Tennis Racquet Technology

Tennis racquets have evolved over the generations. Looking back and tennis racquet history; it all by using only bare hands in the 11th or 12th century to today`s racquets full of technology like Graphite Tungsten. The evolution of tennis racquet technology from flesh racquets to the technology-packed racquets of today, was not quick. Tennis racquets have been changed and updated over hundreds of years. From cumbersome wooden tennis racquets with tear-drop shaped heads to the extremely oversized head racquets to the widebody design, tennis racquets are constantly changing to enhance the game of tennis even more.

By the 14th century, tennis racquet technology started evolving, the Italians began using a wooden frame and strings composed of gut. These racquets had long handles and small, oval shaped heads. Metal tennis racquets entered the tennis world as early as 1889 but it never gained much popularity among players until 1967 when Wilson produced the T2000 which was stronger and more light-weight than metal racquets. By 1980, tennis players basically had two choices of tennis racquets; cheap aluminum racquets or the more expensive ones composed of graphite or composite. Wood tennis racquets became obsolete. They no longer offered anything to the game but have become collectibles.

Tennis racquet manufacturers didn’t stop with the discovery of a more durable frame. They have evaluated and advanced every part of the racquet, from the frame composition to the string grommets, creating lighter, faster and more powerful sticks that have revolutionized the game.

The tennis racquet technology and innovations implemented in Head tennis racquets have given these players the advantage they need to dominate all other players.
