A tennis racquet is taped using racquet head tape that should be available at any sporting goods store. It is applied to the outside of the top half of the racquet to keep the racquet head from being scratched on the ground when hitting low shots. Weighted tape is also available for those who want to customize the weight distribution of the racquet head.
