HEAD tennis rackets are designed and manufactured by the HEAD Company Inc., who are a sports and sports clothing company perhaps best known for their alpine skis as well as their tennis rackets. The company currently has its global headquarters in Seattle, Washington in the east of the USA.
In the late 1960's Howard Head devised the idea to strengthen the existing wooden tennis racket by using an aluminium frame and with that came the birth of the HEAD Tennis Division. It was an innovation that was quickly adapted into the tennis rackets of top professional layers and the first aluminium framed racket was played with in the 1969 US Tennis Open. Fast forward nearly 25 years and HEAD were again at the forefront of tennis technological development by creating the first titanium and graphite racket.
In the modern game HEAD rackets are used by a plethora of the top names on both the men's and women's professional tours. So much so that HEAD where top of an unofficial ranking for the amount of success achieved by top tour professionals playing with their rackets. In fact, about 30% of the top 100 players on the world ATP Tour are armed with a HEAD tennis racket.
Head Racket Rebels, as they are 'affectionately' known, include current US Open Champion Andy Murray, (the Scottish star who has slowly but surely put British tennis on the map), current Australian Open Champion and 'two handed backhand King,' Novak Djokovic, and the current women's French Open winner Maria Sharapova. These stars, amongst others, work hard to improve the profile of the HEAD brand and have a massive and dedicated team of developers and innovators behind them to help ensure they stay at the top of their game.
