Advanced tennis rackets review

Advanced tennis rackets: We test the 8 best rackets for advanced players in 2019


Best of the best: how eight leading advanced tennis rackets from Head, Wilson, Dunlop, Tecnifibre, Mantis, Volkl, Yonex and Prince fared in our advanced racket reviews

 

Professional players become very attached to their rackets, to the point where many stay with the same manufacturer throughout their careers. It can be a matter of the racket’s weight, how much it suits their game or simply how it feels in their hands. The same thinking can apply to advanced level players – top club competitors, those in performance squads or juniors eager to break on to the pro circuit.

We put eight of the best advanced tennis rackets in the hands of two exceptional young players at Winchester Racquets and Fitness.

Liam, aged 19, trains across Hampshire and is the perfect candidate for this test as he hopes to go pro within the next year. Joining him was Will, a Loughborough University Tennis Team student who trains at the club when he returns from his studies. First watch the video of our advanced racket reviews (with a big thanks to Jack from JackMansfieldVideography.com) from the testing day then read their verdicts on the eight rackets.
