SNOWSHOE-SHAPED RACKET MAKES TENNIS EASIER (Mar, 1935)

SNOWSHOE-SHAPED RACKET MAKES TENNIS EASIER
Designed to distribute strain evenly, a curious new tennis racket has made its appearance in England. The shape of its frame suggests that of a snowshoe. Branching arms form a “V” with a short handle at their bottom and a webbed oval for striking the ball is enclosed between them at the top. The inventor of the new racket is F. W. Donisthorpe, professional tennis champion of Great Britain in 1924-1925 and an internationally famous player of the game.

    Hua. As a kid I always thought snowshoes looked like tennis rackets for the feet, but I guess I had it backwards.
