The Play and Connect racquet is a hi-tech tennis tool that will help improve the technique and overall game of both professional and amateur players. Developed by French tennis equipment company Babolat, this racquet is equipped with electronic sensors that analyze a person's swing to the last detail.

From a person's service velocity and racquet speed to the point of contact between the ball and the Play and Connect racquet, it streams data in real time to a laptop as he or she plays. This ensures a minute-by-minute playback while also allowing the player to concentrate on the game or practice without stopping to connect the racquet manually to a laptop.

The Play and Connect racquet is the exact same weight and balance as a regular racquet.
