Abstract

In this chapter, various racket head designs were evaluated to identify the parameter that influences the performance of the racket. Based on the analysis, performance of racket head design was affected by two main factors which are the area of string-bed and the deflection of sting. In-depth analysis on the relationship between string-bed surface area and deflection of string were discussed in greater details. Furthermore, this finding provides the understanding in development for greater head shape design in future.
