Rackets & Bats

A racket is a piece of lightweight sports equipment made with a secure string mesh firmly stretched on an open-loop built for striking a ball in a ball sport. Rackets can be made from a variety of materials from traditional wood to modern composite or ceramic materials like titanium. Developed over many years with technological changes, rackets have changed shape from the traditional oval head shape to the isometric head shape made possible by new materials. Humans of all ages use rackets to hit balls in various racket sports around the world to make a goal and score a point.

Tennis Racket - Midplus
Size comparison drawing showing the length of a Tennis Racket (Midplus) in relation to other rackets

A Tennis Racket is the primary piece of equipment needed to play tennis. There is a handle that is connected to a neck that joins a roughly elliptical frame that holds a network of tightly pulled strings. In the first 100 years of modern tennis, the rackets were made of wood, and the strings were made of animal gut.

Through most of the 20th century, laminated wood rackets were more commonly used, and then metal and composites of carbon graphite, ceramics, and lighter metals like titanium were introduced. The strings now are made of a synthetic material that match the feel of gut, but with added durability.

The Midplus Tennis Racket has a length between 27”-27.5” (68.6-69.9 cm), width of 10.625” (27 cm), and racket frame depth of .625” (15.9 mm). The head size of a Midplus Tennis Racket is 96-105 in² | 619-677 cm²

Ice Hockey Goalie Stick
Size comparison diagram of the Ice Hockey Goalie Stick compared to other similar sports equipment

An Ice Hockey Goalie Stick is a sports equipment explicitly designed for the goaltenders in an ice hockey game. The stick has similar properties as those of a standard ice hockey stick. However, the goaltender stick has a slight modification at the lower part — which is more comprehensive, providing more blocking surface area, and bears a smaller angle. Besides, the blade is slightly curved toward the play direction. The goaltender uses his or her stick to play when needed, deflect a puck directed to his or her goal, block a puck, or absorb a puck shock when making a save.

Ice Hockey Goalie Sticks have a length of 56”-63” (142.2-160 cm), blade length of 15”-15.5” (38.1-39.4 cm), blade height between 3.5”-4” (88.9-101.6 mm), and shaft depth of .88”-1.13” (22.4-28.7 mm). The mass of an Ice Hockey Goalie Stick is 21.2-29.1 oz (600-825 g).

Badminton Racket

A Badminton Racket is a piece of sports equipment that has a handled frame with an open hoop with a network of strings stretched tightly. It is used to strike a shuttlecock in a Badminton match. Modern rackets are made of carbon fiber composite, which is stiff, has a good strength to weight ratio, and gives good kinetic energy transfer. Prior to the use of carbon fiber composite, Badminton Rackets were made of wood. While a Badminton Racket’s size and shape are limited by standards, there is a wide variety of racket designs, and different rackets have playing characteristics that appeal to different players.

Badminton Rackets have an overall length of 26.18”-26.77” (665-680 mm), head width from 8.66”-9.06” (220-230 mm), and a handle diameter of 1” (25.4 mm). The mass of a modern Badminton Racket is between 2.46-3.35 oz (70-95 g).

Polo Mallet
Scaled comparison drawings of the Polo Mallet and other sports equipment

A Polo Mallet, also known as a Pallet Stick, is the equipment that is used to hit a ball during a game of Polo. A Polo Ball is hit with the broad sides of the mallet head. The Polo Mallet is made up of a shaft with a grip, a sling to wrap around the thumb, and a cigar-shaped head. The shaft of the Polo Mallet is typically made from cane or composite materials. The head of the Polo Mallet is usually made from tipa, a hardwood. Female players typically use lighter mallets than male players. The length of the mallet varies and depends on the horse.

Polo Mallets have a length of 50”-53” (127-135 cm), head width of 9”-9.25” (228-235 mm), and head diameter of 1.77” (45 mm). The weight of a Polo Mallet is 17.1-19.93 oz (485-565 g).

Cricket Bat
Scaled comparison drawings of the Cricket Bat and other sports equipment

The Cricket Bat is a piece of sports equipment used in Cricket batsmen. The cricket bat is commonly made in India and Pakistan, featuring a flat-fronted willow-wood blade fixed to a cane handle. When new, it is knocked on old cricket balls in what they call "knocking-in" to allow the delicate fiber to hit a new cricket ball without damage to the bat. For maintenance and preparation, treat the cricket bat with linseed oil. Today, cricket bats are available in different sizes, including children's sizes, youth sizes, and adult sizes.

Cricket Bats have a length of common length of 33.5”-34.375” (85.1-87.3 cm), maximum of length of 38” (96.5 cm), width of 4.25” (10.8 cm), and depth of 2.64” (67 mm). The weight of a Cricket Bat is 2.63–3 lb (1.19-1.36 kg).
