Babolat is the oldest company specialising in racquet sports and with its ability to innovate, continues the game to this day.

Ever since the invention of the VS racquet string, Babolat has been producing innovative products to improve player performance.

Founded in Lyons, France, in 1875, Babolat remains a family-run business and its distinctive ‘Double Line' logo is easily identifiable on racquet equipment across the world.

The company has built its reputation by offering products at the forefront of technology and by supplying equipment to generations of champions, who have won many prestigious competitions.

Babolat has been driving the game forward through observation and analysis of how the game is played by top professionals and club players alike.

For example, by studying the specific details of Rafael Nadal's game, Babolat perfected his Aeropro Drive racquet with its unprecedented aerodynamic cross-section design.

Through similar analysis of player movement during tennis matches, Babolat shoe technologies were born to optimise performance.

Babolat players include world number ones, Nadal and Dinara Safina, as well as Andy Roddick, Nadia Petrova and Caroline Wozniacki to name but a few.

Today Babolat can be found in more than 100 countries, 20,000 sporting goods stores and 20,000 partner clubs.
