Yonex was founded as a wood crafting business in 1946 Japan. From these humble beginnings, the brand rose to become a racquet manufacturer and, eventually, a paragon in the sports world, creating high-tech golf clubs, snowboards, and badminton racquets â€“ and, of course, tennis racquets and shoes. Founder Minoru Yoneyama’s goal was to never be surpassed by the technological advancements of other companies, and the Yonex brand has adhered to this commitment for the last 60 years.
Pro players that currently play with Yonex include Bernard Tomic, Stanislas Wawrinka, Ana Ivanovic, Maria Kirilenko, Caroline Wozniacki, and Angelique Kerber - and more! The reason all these ATP and WTA pros are choosing Yonek? This brand features a wide variety of styles of racquet, to suit every type of play. For the player wanting to emulate the pros, the V-Core series is the way to go; used by most every Yonex-sponsored player, these racquets offer versatility and control with nice pace and spin. Yonex racquets also features a unique square shape, called isometric design that enlarges the sweet spot on the racquet, giving you a 7% more effective hitting area - enough to help you make that winning shot.
Yonex also offers a line of string and a line of shoes for all your tennis needs.
