QUICK TIP – What’s all the racket about a racket?

Truly, only you can choose the right racket for you. There are so many different rackets and too much subjectivity and psychology involved in selecting the perfect racket. The manufacturers expound on this and that about the intricacies of their racket and strings which leaves your head whirling.
