When you hit a tennis ball with a tennis racquet, you want the ball to contact the sweet spot of strings.

To hit a tennis ball with topspin, at the point of contact with the racquet being perpendicular to the ground, twist your wrist so the face of the racquet with the point of contact with the ball turns towards the ground. You must do this while you are swinging at the ball. Follow through with the ball, which means do not stop as soon as you hit the tennis ball and twist your wrist, but rather let the momentum let you take the racquet more forward after contact with the tennis ball has ceased. The best way to generate topspin is the "high-to-low" concept, by starting with your racquet low and ending up higher. View the Related Link to see a YouTube video of topspin demonstration.

Tennis, Squash or racquet ball.

Racquet comprising a ball striking surface, a racquet head frame, and a racquet handle. Different dimensions and lighter than a tennis racquet.

There are over twenty different forms of racquet sports. The most popular of these are: Racquet Ball, Tennis, BadMinton, Lacrosse, Paddle Ball and Ping Pong.

What do you mean by example? Striking the tennis ball with your racquet? Or are you asking how to show someone how to play tennis?

To serve in tennis, is to hit a tennis ball with your racquet, aiming to score against an opponent.

It depends on many factors. How will the tennis balls be propelled? Will you hit both with a racquet? Will you shoot them from a potato cannon?

There are three parts of a tennis racquet. The part that you hold is the "grip". Above the grip is the "neck". Someone who holds their tennis racket by the neck is said to be "choking" their racquet; this is not the correct way to play. The part that you hit the ball with (and the largest part of the racquet) is called the "head". The part makes up the head is the "rim". As for a badminton racquet, I would assume that it's very similar.

Although the vast majority of ball movement (i.e., direction, trajectory, speed, and spin) is under the control of the person wielding the tennis racquet, the string can have a slightaffect on the ball, depending on its thickness (gauge) and how tightly it is strung onto the racquet, even though the ball is on the strings only 1/100th of a second. For more information, refer to the "Introduction to Racquet Science" link, below.

Rubber can bounce for a longer time and it can be played be a tennis racquet (you can not hit a cricket ball with tennis racquet) and one more reason is there is none other material other than rubber balls are made of rubber

Your non-hitting hand holds the tennis racquet at the throat (below the strings but above the grip), so when you are getting ready for a shot, your non-hitting hand moves the tennis racquet back so your hitting hand does not get tired of moving the racquet back and swinging at the ball.

No,a racquetball racket is too light for playing tennis. You can not bear the hitting power of a tennis ball with a raquetball racket.

A tennis racquet is not a simple stick. It has a handle and a tight mesh across a circular frame that is used to hit the tennis ball back and forth.

It started in Europe by European monks. It was first played several thousand years ago. It was first played with bare human hands then it was played with special gloves and now we have the well known tennis racquet. The tennis racquet was invented as it could hit a ball and you would be alble to serve a ball.

There are numerous gifts you could give to a tennis player. How about a charm bracelet with a tennis ball and racquet charm. There is also a beautiful crystal Wilson tennis ball display that would make any tennis player happy.

There are no units of measure suitable for measuring a sport. A tennis court, net, ball, racquet, player can all be measured, but not tennis itself!

Several characteristics of a tennis racquet make it better at driving the ball deeper, which is the definition of a power racquet. One of the important factors is the balance of the tennis racquet. If it is more head heavy, it provides more power. Going too far with head heavy weight distribution can lead to arm problems however, so be careful when choosing. Another factor is the type of string you use and the tension that they are set at. Tension should always be within a range specified by the manufacturer. If you set your tension at the lower end of this range, you will be able to drive the ball further. Some purists say this doesn't qualify as power, because the ball is not leaving the racquet at a higher velocity. It's going farther because it stays in contact with the strings longer, but if that is one of the things you want, then what difference does it make? String materials also effect the power. If the string is made of stiffer materials like Kevlar or polyester, the ball will not go as far. Strings made of natural gut or synthetic gut are better for distance. Another characteristic affecting power is the head size of the tennis racquet. The larger the head, the larger the size of the sweet spot and the better you will be able to drive the ball.

The size of tennis racquet you choose is really a personal preference. Basically, tennis racquets come in a mid-size and oversize. The mid-size racquet has a smaller tennis face and less surface area of tennis strings. Mid-size racquets are more compact and usually lighter. They are easier to swing and move around quickly. Serve and volley type players often prefer the smaller mid-size racquet. An oversize racquet has a large surface area of tennis strings. This can make the racquet feel heavier and it is more difficult to swing the racquet around quickly. However, the "sweet" spot on the racquet is larger. The sweet spot is where you want the ball to hit your strings more maximum effectiveness. Players that hug the baseline tend to enjoy using an oversize racquet. You can always "demo" different racquets at your tennis club to see which size is best for you. Your tennis pro can also give you great reccomendations.

The force-displacement graph for the strings of a new type of graphite-head tennis racquet is shown in diagram (a). The racquet is tested in a laboratory by being secured vertically and then having a special type of non-deforming tennis ball fired at it horizontally, as shown in diagram (b). The initial velocity of the ball as it strikes the racquet is 10 m s-1 east. After striking the racquet, the ball has a velocity of 9.5 m s-1 west. The mass of the ball is 100 g. What is the maximum displacement of the strings of the racquet during this interaction?

When the ball hits the tennis racket, topspin (preffered stroke of tennis) makes the ball spin. The upward motion of the racket hitting the tennis ball.
