A company founded in the heritage city of Lyon, France in 1875, Babolat invented the raquet strings and is the oldest company dedicated to producing racquet sports equipment. Marrying scientific precision, economy, and class, Babolat’s prestigious lines of string technologies and tennis, badminton and squash equipment have been the choice of champions for many generations. Top tennis players such as “King of Clay” Rafael Nadal and currently World No.12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga are two players that endorse the racquet brand.
The Babolat brand has been a fixture in the scene and has been deeply embedded in the tennis culture that people use the term “babolise” to refer to the practice of protecting their strings with Babol Spray, a popular tennis string maintenance developed by the company. Babolat has branches in over 100 countries and its products can be found in 20,000 sporting goods stores and 20,000 partner clubs.
