We are big fans of Grays Real Tennis and the Grays brand.. here is a great story for you from the lads at the factory in Cambridge......top team!!! This write up was done by the guy who has introduced the Racket back to the tennis market..
............................................................................

It’s true that Grays rackets never won Grand Slam titles in modern times, but in 1991 a Grays racket was in the hands of a Grand Slam legend.

When 34-year-old Bjorn Borg wanted to come back to competition in 1991, his Donnay wood rackets weren’t available any more.

Grays of Cambridge came to the party. The rackets were all black and crafted with Borg’s trademark extended grip. Making these rackets was a big deal for the Grays team!

The tournament was the Monte Carlo Open. His first-round opponent was Spanish journeyman Jordi Arrese. Unfortunately, Borg went down 6-2 6-3.

Non-experts immediately pointed to the most obvious, that he was using a wood racket. But it takes many things to make up a performance and a comeback – not only equipment but a player’s physical condition, mental state, match toughness and many other things.

In his first match back Borg could not be match tough and he admitted his physical preparation had been lacking.

His old coach Lennart Bergelin saw the match and concluded the problem was not the racket but Borg’s slower movement.

Nick Bollettieri also pointed to a deficiency in Borg’s movement. “Of all the things I saw, he didn’t move like he used to,” the famed coach said.

The comeback was short-lived. Very soon he was playing on the 35’s and over "seniors" tour.

When I visited the Grays factory in January last year, one of these Borg comeback rackets was still hanging in the office. The design of the 2019 Grays Masterpiece is based on this racket.

Grays mastercraftsmen Tim Dowe, who worked on both rackets, told me there were a “few differences” between the two.

You can’t buy one of the Borg comeback rackets but you can buy a 2019 Grays Masterpiece. They are on sale now.

So we have had some time to start work on the club shop.... thankyou ZakEadle design  looking good. Please let us know w...
