RacquetWorld's Exclusive Racquetball Racquet Ratings ranks racquets on a 100 point scale. The main idea behind the age ratings is F=MA, or Force = Mass x Acceleration. What this means for a racquetball player is that to generate more power you either need to increase your swing speed or the weight of your racquet. On average a younger player is going to generate more swing speed so a lighter racquet usually fits a younger player while a older player with a slower swing speed would require a heavier racquet to generate the same amount of power. Our ratings also factor in the specific racquet technologies, frame shape and string pattern.
The products below are our 2018 - 2019 top 10 rated racquets for age 45+ overall (includes both power & control).
