Volkl Tennis

Völkl (pronounced fœlkl) is a German tennis racket manufacturer with an interesting story to tell.  It began life as a ski manufacturer, adding tennis rackets to its range in 1972 – just as the sport’s popularity was growing worldwide with the advent of pro tournaments and global TV coverage.


Every Völkl product combines cutting-edge technology and high quality with a boundless passion for sport.  Völkl’s has a dedicated R&D centre for tennis equipment at its ultra modern facility in Straubing-Sand, Germany.

 

Völkl’s first racket, the Zebra, was an extension of its established ski brand of the same name with its trademark stacked chevron design.  It was the world’s first full-composite (fibreglass) tennis racket to ever hit the courts and was an immediate hit with players because of how it handled on court and its unique design. 


What’s more the Völkl Zebra soon became the racket to have amongst Hollywood's A-list at a time when significant movie deals were done on court.


Völkl rackets have been in the hands of champions at the major tournaments ever since – McEnroe, Becker, Voegele, Novák, Mantilla and more have all favoured Völkl through their careers.  And when Petr Korda won the Australian Open and went on to be the first Grand Slam singles winner in 1998 he did it with a Völkl racket.


The following year when Becker announced his retirement from the game at Wimbledon he purchased a stake in Völkl Tennis GmbH.  Becker has since been involved in numerous innovations with Völkl and was key in the launch of Völkl’s ‘Boris Becker Tennis’ brand back in 2007.


Today Völkl manufactures tennis rackets, strings and accessories and continues to innovate every design element along the way.  Völkl’s trademark bright colours and vivid patterns have also made a lasting impression on the game.

Many brands claim they’ve revolutionised a sport but in Völkl’s case the contention is justified.
