Babolat, the leading French racquet sports producer, has announced an interesting collaboration with HumanFab, a French company specializing in the application of human engineering to sports performance, to jointly explore racquet sports dynamics. The collaboration will start this year with the construction of a dedicated, 2,500-square-meter Racquet Sports Laboratory in Aix en Provence, where HumanFab has one of its two centers. The idea is to deepen the scientific knowledge of the tennis, pàdel tennis and badminton player in order to ensure that the racquet is perfectly adapted to the player, irrespective of age or experience, in order to optimize his or her performance. The partners in the project will use an innovative approach that combines the development of the product with research on sports training and sports medicine.
