CRP Technology has produced an unusual tennis racket grip in association with two students from the Rimini Academy of Fine Arts. The company played a key role in the project by constructing the prototype using its Windform materials.

The main aim was to make the grip more aerodynamic and responsive, combined with distinctive styling. As well as their striking appearance, the remodelled parts also incorporate the results of aerodynamic research intended to improve the player’s match performance.

The prototype was designed by breaking the tennis racket down into its three fundamental parts: the handle, the neck and the head. Structural variants were developed for each part. At the same time, work was carried out on the entire frame to achieve maximum uniformity and balance.

Key benefits of product application

  • The changes made have reportedly delivered fundamental improvements in the racket’s performance.
  • Thanks to the professional printers installed in the additive manufacturing department, it was possible to create the racket as a single monolithic piece. It was constructed in Windform XT 2.0.
  • This material is popular with those working in the motorsport and space industries thanks to its excellent mechanical properties.
  • Carbon fibre filled and polyamide based, Windform XT 2.0 is resistant to stresses and damage and is very lightweight.
