ProKennex Tennis Equipment

It’s not rocket science, but it is racket science.


ProKennex is dedicated to improving the racket sports through research, development and innovation. 
ProKennex is not a brand to turn around quick and minor improvements season after season.  Nor is it one to invest in heavy duty marketing, devoting its resources to real research and development over product placement and pro-endorsement.  That said Andreas Seppi, Daniel Yoo, Pablo Pires de Almeida and Ryan Redondo all play with ProKennex.


Key to ProKennex’s approach is its on-going study of athletes in motion which it merges with science and creativity to push the boundaries of every racket sport making radical leap-sized changes rather than incremental tweaks and adaptions.


Accordingly every one of Prokennex’s rackets’ features is vigorously patented and protected, so if you buy ProKennex you buy something genuinely unique.


ProKennex’s Taiwanese founder Lo Kunnan was manufacturing wooden tennis rackets back in 1968 and aluminium ones in 1973.  He launched the ProKennex brand in 1978 and made the world’s first mid-size graphite tennis rackets in 1980.


ProKennex’s most famous breakthrough came with its KINETIC series of rackets, the first to radically reduce the shock and vibration famous for causing the most persistent of injuries to pro and amateur players alike, tennis elbow.  The system increases frame stability when it connects with the ball, particularly on off-centre shots and continues to stand the test of time today.


In 1999, ProKennex launched the CORE series of racquets. The CORE system utilizes dual graphite cylinders in conjunction with a natural wood spine to produce unprecedented feel, touch and control. The two cylinders create separate, opposing shock waves on impact with the ball which ultimately cancel one another out at the point of intersection (the wood spine).  Science and nostalgia have combined here to create a popular and high performance range of rackets.


ProKennex remains dedicated to advancing the game through its strict scientific approach and its passion and commitment to developing exclusive advances that no other competitor can match.
