Founded in 1875 in Lyon, France, Babolat invented the first racket strings and is the oldest company specializing in racket sports. The Babolat "Double line" logo is easily recognizable (white, black or yellow on frames and black or red on strings). Babolat has built a reputation for offering products that are at the forefront of technology and providing equipment to generations of champions who have won the most prestigious competitions.
Babolat and Padel
In 2010 Babolat launched their new Padel Rackets and innovation is the key to the success of their improvements. Babolat partners with companies and universities that are known worldwide for their expertise. One example is the Michelin brand, specializing in ground contact, working together with Babolat on the design of the outsoles for their shoes. Juan Lebron Chincoa No. 1 WPT ranking, Fernando Poggi and Victoria Iglesias are well-known WPT players who play with Babolat.
