Are tennis racquets smaller or larger than badminton racquets?

According to the Badminton Information website (refer to the link, below), modern badminton racquets "shall not exceed 680mm [approximately 26.8 inches] in overall length and 230 mm [approximately 9 inches] in overall width."According to the USTA Rules (refer to the link, below), modern tennis racquets "shall not exceed 29.0 inches overall length, including the handle. The frame of the racket shall not exceed 12.5 inches in overall width."Given the above, a tennis racquet can be larger than a badminton racquet. However, for the record, tennis racquets can be (and have been) smaller than a badminton racquet, but that would be impractical for most modern players, as the shorter tennis racquet would not be as powerful as a larger one.
