Pydra Beach Tennis Bat

The game of beach tennis encourages physical health and social interaction. This concept features a specific grip design to enable rapid switching between forehand and backhand stroke without axial wrist rotation. It reduces wrist load, provides accuracy and accelerates the game. The bat is made from a rigid foam core with a tough polymer or fibre-reinforced composite skin.
