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.

Ice Hockey Stick
Scaled comparison drawings of the Ice Hockey Stick and other sports equipment

An Ice Hockey Stick is the primary piece of sports equipment used by players in ice hockey. It is usually long and slender with a blade at one end. The stick is curved in a manner that depends on how a player wields the stick, while the blade is the part used to make contact and manipulate the puck's direction. Ice hockey players use the stick for passing, shooting, or carrying the puck across the ice. Each blade on an ice hockey stick is made according to the National Hockey League (NHL) standards to limit illegal curves that may make the pluck behave erratically and pose a danger to the goaltender.

Ice Hockey Sticks have a length of 56”-63” (142.2-160 cm), blade length of 12.6”-15.75” (32-40 cm), blade height of 2”-3” (50.8-76.2 mm), and shaft depth of .88”-1.13” (22.4-28.7 mm). The weight of an Ice Hockey Stick is 14.64-16.75 oz (415-475 g).

Ping-Pong Paddle | Table Tennis Racket
Illustrated diagram comparing the size of a Ping-Pong Paddle to other Rackets used in sports

Ping-Pong Paddles, or Table Tennis Rackets, are laminated rubber sponge covered wooden rackets comprised of a blade and a handle. The ping pong blade refers to the upper wooden portion of the racket that is built up with one to seven layers (piles) of wood, cork, glass fiber, carbon fiber, aluminum fiber, or Kevlar customized for various play styles.

Ping-Pong Paddles (Table Tennis Rackets) have an average blade length of 6.7” (17 cm), blade width of 5.9” (15 cm), an overall length between 9.45”-10.25” (240-260 mm). The weight of a Ping-Pong Paddle is between of 2.47-3.53 oz (70-100 g). Players looking for more ‘control’ of the ball should choose a thinner sponge thickness between .06”-.07” (1.5-1.9 mm), while players looking for a more offensive play style should select a thicker sponge of larger than .08” (2 mm).

Pickleball paddles were originally made from wood, but are currently constructed from lightweight materials like aluminum and graphite. A Pickleball paddle is smaller than a tennis racket, but is bigger than the standard ping-pong paddle.

Players should consider its weight and grip size when selecting their Pickleball paddle. Each Pickleball paddle has a distinctive feel. Some are designed for power while others are designed to improve control. Pickleball paddles come in a wide variety of colors are able to last for years.

Pickleball Paddles have an overall maximum length of 15.5”-17” (39.37-43.18 cm), width of 7”-8.25” (177.8-209.6 mm), and typical depth of 1.25” (31.8 mm). The length of the handle is 4”-5.5” (101.6-139.7 mm) with a grip circumference between 4”-4.5” (101.6-114.3 mm). The mass of a Pickleball Paddle is 6.5-9.5 oz (185-270 g). The combined width and length of a Pickleball Paddle cannot exceed 24" (61 cm).

Fencing Sabre
Scaled comparison drawings of the Fencing Sabre and other sports equipment

A Fencing Sabre is used by Fencing players to score with both the cutting edge and back of the blade, as opposed to only using the tip like the other Fencing weapons. The blade of the Fencing Sabre is made out of steel and is rectangular. The Fencing Sabre also has a guard that provides hand protection. Similar to the other Fencing weapons, Fencing Sabres are available in electric or non-electric types. When using a Fencing Sabre the target areas include the torso above the waist, head, and arms. The hands and any area below the waist are off-target.

Fencing Sabres have a length of 41.34” (105 cm), handguard width of 5.5” (14 cm), and handguard depth of 5.9” (15 cm). The mass of a Fencing Sabre is 17.63 oz (500 g).

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
