Balanced for Beginners
Keeping new players comfortable and in control is paramount when it comes to learning any sport, and it’s the core premise of these beginner racquetball racquets. Lightweight aluminum-alloy construction is extremely easy to handle and non-intimidating in the hands of younger students, which leads to better control and more accuracy with each swing. In addition, the slightly smaller 21-1/2” frame makes learning easy, with proportions that are nearly official sized.
Despite the shorter length, these racquets are great for learning the sport thanks to their accommodating midsized heads, which are focused enough for speedy and accurate shots, yet forgiving of mishits and off-target swipes. 20mm head beams provide great playability in the string bed, which means younger players don’t need as much power behind their swings to produce shots with some zip behind them! A choice of nylon and coated-steel strings allows you to pick the optimal choice for your students—nylon for more fast-paced, responsive play or coated-steel for institutional longevity.
With beginners come the prospect of undue abuse to equipment, which means having a racquetball racquet that can stand up to hearty wear and tear, along with accidental impacts. The aluminum-alloy construction of these racquets promises resilience in the face of institutional training and will ensure racquets perform admirably at all times, without compromising in their structure or design.
In the event of floor hits or contact with another racquet, nylon bumpers protect the integrity of these racquets by allowing them to glance seamlessly off, while dissipating any impact energy to the more rigid frame design.
Also highly conducive to the durability of these racquets is the synthetic grip, which will offer an ergonomic hand feel in the face of fast-paced play and moist conditions. As students wind up for a big hit or make a quick adjustment on an incoming ball, they’ll do so with the confidence that a trustworthy grip provides. Less opportunity for mishandling means less chance for accidents or unwarranted equipment abuse.
