One of our chief goals is to improve the tennis experience through innovation and objective analysis.

We believe that access to objective technical analysis is critical to enable modern athletes to make sound choices about equipment use. We hope to help lead this trend toward a more competitive market which will lead to generally better products in a faster cycle, long term thinking about innovation, and most importantly an improved tennis experience. Welcome to BOLT Racquet Lab!

Tech Driven Growth

It's safe to say that the design and performance of tennis equipment, and racquets in particular, have been the target of focus as both an art and a science since the earliest days of the game. A brief glance through etchings, drawings, photos and patents makes clear the depth of thought and creativity that have gone into the field over more than 100 years.

BOLT celebrates this rich history. We know that tennis players often develop "special" relationships with their racquets. It is a players' direct connection to the ball and the game itself and the most experienced players will invariably have a long list of very specific preferences including the weight and balance, grip size, string tension and type, to name just a few.

It's this special relationship of player and racquet that has made technological breakthroughs in racquet design particularly impactful over the history of the game. A single significant shift in technological capacity has often fueled major leaps in interest and participation, as well as changes in the way the game is played.

We hope to provide the innovation spark for growth. We're committed to making the game easier to play, more comfortable, and more powerful than ever before.
