PinExt Slazenger Tennis Racquets Reviews

Slazenger is one of the oldest brands in the sport of tennis. Founded in 1881, the company was one of the first to manufacture wooden racquets and tennis balls. Bjorn Borg played early on his career with a Slazenger racquet while in later years stars like Tim Henman used the racquets as well.

After not releasing any new racquets for a few years, the company is back with some new models that suit a variety of playing styles and experience levels.
