1930 to 1945 Tennis Racquets
The era of budding professionalism bred photo decal racquets and leather grips over the previously bare wooden handle. Progress was on the move, enameled colors, wind resistant profiles, lighter and more durable was the goal. The manufacturers competed to sell frames by how they looked and felt rather than by simply offering a single utilitarian style that everybody was familiar with. Tennis was truly on the verge of being a major international sport.
