Wilson serves up sustainability with new tennis racket launch

April 25, 2022 |

In Chicago, Wilson Sporting Goods has launched new sustainable offerings for tennis players, including performance rackets made from bioplastics, recycled plastics, and waterborne coatings. 

Hans-Martin Reh, Global General Manager of Wilson Racquet Sports, says in a press statement that the Earth Day Series of rackets are “thoughtfully crafted in a more sustainable manner, while not compromising the performance integrity of the rackets that players around the world utilize to bring their best to every match.” 

The rackets are designated Pro Staff 97 v13, Blade 98 v8, and Clash 100 v2. All three retail for $299 and use Agiplast, a biobased and recycled material produced by Arkema, in their butt caps and bumper grommets. The rackets also use biodegradable polyurethane for their grips.
