Why AVERY Racquets?
SUPER Light Stiff Racquets are many times the cause of Arm Problems.
IT’S SIMPLE PHYSICS
A tennis ball weighs in at 57 grams and is coming at you from 30 mph to over 100 mph. When racquet and ball collide your racquet needs a certain amount of weight (or mass) to give you the best result (deep penetrating shots with pace and spin) and arm protection.
If your racquet does not have enough weight (mass) there are numerous problems that occur:
- The racquet does not absorb the shock of ball and racquet collision and the shock is transferred to your arm resulting in wrist, elbow and shoulder problems.
- The racquet slows down at contact because there is not enough weight to plow through the contact area and maintain its speed resulting in weaker shots with less pace, less depth, and less spin.
AVERY Racquets proven method of racquet design give you the following benefits:
- At contact AVERY Racquets absorb the shock of racquet and ball collision making it easier and more comfortable on the arm, which means less wrist, elbow and shoulder problems.
- AVERY Racquets maintain there speed at contact and provide solid plow through the contact area which means more pace, more depth, more spin and a heavier ball to your opponents side of the court.

Why Choose AVERY Racquets?
You know it seems we live in a light society, there are super thin fashion models who are very light, we have light beer, light yogurt, it seems that everything has to be light to be considered good. Well, not when it comes to tennis racquets, really a lightweight racquet is not a good idea, as pro customizers attest. The touring pros know better, they add weight when they customize their racquets. They know that a heavier racquet will crush through the ball instead of bouncing off, which makes it more comfortable on impact and more accurate. They know that you need weight to return a heavy ball with lots of pace and spin.
At this point you may be thinking, “The heavier racquets are fine for tour players, but I’m certainly not at their level.” This statement raises a question. Are the heavier racquets that work for the tour players also the better one for you? The answer is yes, as long as you have no trouble maneuvering the racquet throughout a match. Obviously, you don’t want to play with anything that is “too heavy” and tough to maneuver, but, what most players don’t realize is that a racquet considered heavy by today’s standards is usually easy to deal with once given a chance. And think about this, AVERY racquets are used by 12 and 14 year old girls, who are USTA nationally top 25 and sectional top 10 who never complain about too much weight, or being unable to maneuver the racquet.
I’m convinced that 90% of tennis players are playing with racquets too light, and could easily maneuver anAVERY Racquet. But today many players stay away from the so-called player frames thinking they’re too heavy for them and that they may hurt their arm. That type of thinking is a common myth that I’d like to address at this time. First of all, you’re a tennis player why shouldn’t you use a player’s racquet? Second, the myth that a heavier racquet will hurt your arm is dead wrong. The opposite is actually true; a heavier racquet protects your arm.
Let me explain, if you were in a car accident which would you rather be driving a truck or a compact? Obviously, the truck. Well the collision of a racquet and ball is similar, the heavier racquet will crush and plough through the ball and absorb the shock of that collision; therefore, the heavier racquet protects your arm against tendon and muscle tears. On the other hand, a light racquet will not crush through and absorb the shock, and the shock of that collision will transfer to your arm. It’s this trend in light racquets that has really been the cause of many of the arm injuries we see today.
So, to the uninformed a heavier racquet may hurt your arm, but to those who know the truth about racquets it’s a recognized fact that weight in a racquet is your friend, it protects your arm. And remember I’m not saying to play with a racquet that’s “too heavy”, AVERY Racquets are not “too heavy” but they are heavy enough to provide plough through, at contact, and absorb the shock.
And arm protection is not the only advantage; think about this, what would happen if you tried to hit a hardball home run with a softball bat that is lightweight? Well, a softball bat cannot hit a hardball very far because it doesn’t bring enough mass to the collision, and therefore its momentum on impact is low. The same is true in tennis, you’ll never hit a ball with the pace and spin you’re capable of with a light racquet. On the other hand when you’re holding a racquet that has some weight it enables you to hit a “heavy ball” which means you’ll hit with more pace, spin and control.
