We invented it in 1875. What came first: tennis string or tennis? Or does tennis exist because of tennis string? We’ll leave that debate to historians and philosophers. But we can tell you that we invented tennis string from natural gut in 1875. While many of the world’s top players use a modern version of natural gut, we’ve continued to drive the game with innovative materials and technologies that help players perform their best and enjoy the game more than ever.
YOUR TENNIS STRING MATTERS
Whether you’re getting into tennis or winning Wimbledon: your tennis string matters. Did you know 50% of your racquet’s performance comes from the strings?
When you hit a forehand, for four thousandths of a second, your strings are the only thing in contact with the ball. Which means your strings are as important as your racquet. Or as we like to say, “your strings are the engine of your racquet.”
THE RIGHT STRING FOR YOUR GAME
Traditionally, players wanted control, power, and durability from their strings.
