Double Trouble: Two-Handled Tennis Racquet

Doubles partners Dann and Brian Battistone are double trouble in more ways than one. Not only are they brothers, but they also both play with two-handled tennis racquets. Equipped with forked handles, these swatters were designed with fitness in mind, to work both sides of the body equally. But the Battistones have found that the racquets work to their advantage come game time.

The rather bizarre racquets enable players to hit two-handed forehands as well as the more common two-handed backhand for extra power. The Battistones frequently switch grips while serving and hit open-stance forehands from both sides, though they admit that the racquet mostly appeals to kids and novices. Personally, I can't quite understand what advantage it would afford to intermediate or advanced players, but I guess it works for these guys.

Still don't quite get how it works? I've found a video that explains it, so to see it,

i can understand how you wouldn't want to go with this racquet but i have to say that i don't play tennis at all and i'm a bit scared of it too :) i think that it would just not know how to use it properly and that if i learned to play on it, then i would just mess up any chance that i have of learning to play with a normal one.

i play tennis competitively and i don't think i'd ever even touch that thing. i have a fear it would throw me off...placement is everything for speed power and precision. and it looks ugly. ew why do people have to ruin every classic in the book?
