Grabbed a couple of these, I know they're cheap but good for a knock around, I think it must be cheaper than getting a racket re-strung. They were at Tamworth Store at the front, don't buy the balls next to them though, I tried bouncing one on the shop floor and it didn't

pic added, sorry about the poor quality - rushing!

It's 'racquet', not 'racket' :thumbsup:

Or he knows something we don't!

Both are correct spellings.

Are these the Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2009 special editions? :whistling:

ownt.

I saw these in the Ipswich store. They had a massive box of them. If you play once a year for a bit of fun they looked OK, clearly you wouldn't buy one if you were intending to take it seriously.

Agreed on the balls! Trash!

If you're American, which we're not

American do spell it "racket" but it is also accepted in UK English usage. One could argue that the actual nomenclature is raquet which is French derived since tennis originated in France. Therefore, it can be argued that raquet is the original spelling (therefore the argument may hold that it's raquet and not racquet) but they are all correct spellings for UK usage, to all intents and purposes.

I call em Rackets. I'm English, not French

I call it a wracket.

Y'all pwned.

the grip of the racket is terrible wrapped round by thin electrical tape. And the tension is too soft because the string are so bad.So be warned.

In Asda Store in 'Leyton Mills' - Leytonstone - London E10., this deal was for £2 for the same 'Raquet' and a set of 3 balls for £1.....!

Racket? Raquet?

I hate to be pedantic, but it's actually a tennis bat. FACT.:thumbsup:

So no good for Wimbledon then?

No, there isn't an Asda in Wimbledon ;-)

Have to remember the strings are far more important than the racket itself. Prices start from £10 - I can restring this and put a good reliable string on it for you. RacketRestrings.com for more info... I also own RacquetRestrings as I believe both are used in the UK

for those moaning about the spelling, I knew both were acceptable so just put racket. Now changed and includes Racquet. However, I am not including wracket

had a knock about yesterday evening, it appears these rackets (oops, sorry Racquets) are just as good as the Sports Centre hire ones, probably better as they're new and not battered.

so definitely worth a punt IMO, I may go and get some spares for doubles

LMAO about racquet or racket or bat ,still LMAO ,WHO CARES??? LMAO Again......

Have they got any left-handed ones?

best for air guitar / guitar hero type use...were £5...bargain at £3...bajaysus !

I think "you gets what you pay for " is a suitable saying here. I can imagine something going wrong with the however you spell it just as you are fantasizing winning game, set and match at Wimbledon! I was tempted to get one though when I saw them for £2 at Bolton Asda! Isn't having a "W " running through the strings known as "passing off" in legal terms - you know,copying that much worthier racket?

It's acceptable as long as you accept color, favorite, humor, thru and nite as acceptable spellings too. Some of us take a little pride in the English Language and like to see it being used correctly (not that Frankenstein version which is used across the pond). It also makes it easier for your stuff to be found when searching online for it (see below).

People who use search engines care!

google.co.uk/sea…q=t

There's no mention of this item (as Google's cache hasn't moved since the last update), but

google.co.uk/sea…q=t

has this listed as the first post. Racket is the American spelling (don't get me started, please) and as much as you can call it valid, I hardly think this deal would be of any use to them :thumbsup:

pwned i see people use the word on here, on urban dictionary is from warcraft where you had to sell some dudes head in a pawn shop................. erm......... why are we turning american and saying garbage words that in english mean nothing :roll:

Haven't you started yet? Lol

There is nothing wrong with having pride in the English Language, fair play.:thumbsup:

nice, probably better than my plastic string dunlops

nice play on the wilson 'w' btw

I got one of these a few weeks ago so I can play against my son who's just started having tennis lessons, and it's fine.

Although I must admit the tape on the grip is starting to slip, but otherwise I have no complaints.

With this racquet I can beat my 7 year old son with his Andy Murray replica easily:thumbsup:
