Head is a long-standing and well-respected tennis brand that is endorsed by top ATP tour players like Novak Djokovic, Maria Sharapova, and Andy Murray. The company is one of the most popular in the world, offering a huge range of tennis racquets to suit all levels of player. When choosing your first tennis racquet, it is important to consider how much power you want to generate and whether or not you want to learn spin. Many racquets are head heavy, which increases the amount of energy transferred to the ball, but also puts more stress on the wrist, elbow, and shoulder. For beginners, a head light frame is better as it gives you more control while remaining easier to maneuver.
The Geo Speed pre-strung racquet is ideal for beginners, combining power and feel. This racquet features Geo Power Technology, which uses the latest data to optimize the geometry of the frame and combine stiffness, weight, and aerodynamics to increase power potential. It also has an open string pattern of 16 x 19, which increases power and access to spin.
The racquet also comes with MicroGel, which helps to absorb the shock of impact. This technology compresses the energy of the ball and distributes it evenly throughout the racquet for a solid feel. This racquet is less stable against pace than the Pro version, but is great for advanced intermediates who want to improve their accuracy while maintaining a good balance of spin and control.
