The WEED Story

The WEED Tennis Racquet was invented in the early 1970's by Thurlow 'Tad' Weed, a former placekicker for Ohio State in the 1950's, who started playing tennis but was always hitting overheads on the throat.  The racquet became a favorite among ranked senior players who saw the benefit of having a larger hitting area to generate added power and steady play.

Our famous 135 square inch hitting area can benefit any player, whether a beginner or a ranked player.
