Racket for younger players

childrensrcketAt some time, probably in the 1980’s Carlton produced a racket with a shortened handle and grip to accommodate younger players. The grip measures 11.5 cms, while the shaft has been reduced to 21 cms. The result is a sturdy racket with an overall length of 56.5 cms well suited to children taking up the game and illustrated in our image.
The museum racket was donated by Racket Sports of Bedford, a shop that no longer exists.
