Same as the Original?Babolat Play Pure Drive

The Babolat Play Pure Drive racquet looks like a regular racquet on the outside. However, sensors integrated into the handle allow players to have access to a lot of information: power, impact locator, type and number of strokes (forehand, backhand, serve, overhead smash),…

The Technology

Babolat Play Bluetooth USB

Bluetooth & USB: Babolat’s challenge has been to integrate sensors in the handle of the racquet without changing the playability or the feel of the racquet. The design seamlessly integrates 2 buttons and a USB port inside the butt cap without changing the performance of the racquet.

Pulse: The Pulse is a dynamic interface that changes according to the Power, Technique and Endurance of your game. “Pulse” changes according to your game improvement and motivates you to play more. The technology measures how strong you hit the ball, consistency of each type of shot, and the total energy you use during each session.

Battery Life: The high performance battery allows 6 hours of playing time with a memory capacity of 150 hours of tennis game.

Tags Session: The Tag allows you to divide your game session into sequences.  By pressing the tag button on your racquet’s butt cap, you can review your match set by set.

Babolat Tags Session

How does it work? To split a playing session (1st set, 2nd set…), you have to press the Tag/Bluetooth button quickly (less than 1 second), a red light turns on for 1.5 seconds.


Impact Locator: The Impact Locator analyzes each ball impact, determining the location of the ball on the string bed. This helps to measure your consistency.
