List of racket sports

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Racket sports are games in which players use a racket or paddle to hit a ball or other object.[1] Rackets consist of a handled frame with an open hoop that supports a network of tightly stretched strings. Paddles have a solid face rather than a network of strings, but may be perforated with a pattern of holes, or be covered with some form of textured surface.
