not the racquet but the strings
the strings in a tennis racquet are simply called "strings".
When you hit a tennis ball with a tennis racquet, you want the ball to contact the sweet spot of strings.
One. Goes all the way through.
probably because with so many strings needed in a racquet, the racquet itslef probably couldn't withstand the forces of the tension trying to pull the racquet apart! and if you made one that didnt collapse itself then it would be too heavy and cumbersome to use with agility on a tennis court! a bit like a lead balloon!!
When your current racquet gets too light/heavy, you are having an upgrade, it breaks or has a fracture. If you break the strings, just get them replaced, not the whole racquet.
A racquet used to play tennis.
The big difference of a table tennis paddle form a tennis racquet is it's size and composition. The table tennis paddle is small and made of red and black rubber while tennis racquet is long and made of slim steel and string.
The sweet spot is the central part of the strings. Players aim to hit as many shots in this area of the racquet as they can produce better quality shots. There is usually a drawing on the sweet spot of a racquet e.g. on a wilson racquet, the 'W' on the strings is the sweet spot
The size of tennis racquet you choose is really a personal preference. Basically, tennis racquets come in a mid-size and oversize. The mid-size racquet has a smaller tennis face and less surface area of tennis strings. Mid-size racquets are more compact and usually lighter. They are easier to swing and move around quickly. Serve and volley type players often prefer the smaller mid-size racquet. An oversize racquet has a large surface area of tennis strings. This can make the racquet feel heavier and it is more difficult to swing the racquet around quickly. However, the "sweet" spot on the racquet is larger. The sweet spot is where you want the ball to hit your strings more maximum effectiveness. Players that hug the baseline tend to enjoy using an oversize racquet. You can always "demo" different racquets at your tennis club to see which size is best for you. Your tennis pro can also give you great reccomendations.

To string a racquet, you will need to purchase a string machine which can be found at most tennis site, or you could bring it to your local tennis store and ask if they string racquets. They usually charge around $20.00 per racquet.
Your non-hitting hand holds the tennis racquet at the throat (below the strings but above the grip), so when you are getting ready for a shot, your non-hitting hand moves the tennis racquet back so your hitting hand does not get tired of moving the racquet back and swinging at the ball.

The "silver tennis racquet" is a myth and its made up.
A tennis racquet usually weighs anywhere from 9 ounces to 12.5 ounces. Every tennis racquet has a different weight, and with lead tape, players can customize their tennis racquet's weight past the standard weight of the racquet.

A tennis or other sports racquet sold at retail is technically "prestrung" (ready to use). Pre-strung means the racquet is shipped to the store already strung and that is the way you purchase it. In specialty sports stores and pro shops, you purchase the racquet, choose the strings, and have the racquet strung at the tension you request.
