As the official footwear sponsors of Wimbledon’s ball boys and girls for a number of years, and now the tournament’s official licensee of tennis rackets, bags and accessories, Babolat’s burgeoning relationship with the oldest tennis tournament in the world has spurned a range of exclusively-designed products dressed in Wimbledon colours.
The Babolat Pure Drive Jnr 26 Wimbledon stands as part of a range of Babolat-Wimbledon rackets that combine top performance and exclusive design.
A 100% graphite racket, it will provide all the power and precision the junior needs to excel. To this end, the Pure Drive 26 Junior has GT technology, which consists of a hybrid material combining braided carbon fibres and tungsten filaments throughout the entire racket to improve racket performance. The concentration of Tungsten fibres at various strategic parts of the frame aids control, feel and feel and provides 10% additional energy recovery for even more power.
An elliptic frame design for added resistance against twisting and flexing brings increased power, while a CDS (Cortex Dampening System) interface transmits useful information to the player and the new handle design brings that information closer to the player's hand for perfect control on every hit.
The Pure Drive 26 also incorporates Babolat’s Woofer System, which is the first technology that makes the frame and the strings interact when striking the ball, providing 25% more contact time between the balls and strings. More control equals a comfortable feel.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
