Babolat is a French tennis, badminton, and squash equipment company, headquartered in Lyon, best known for its strings and tennis racquets which are used by several top players. The company has made strings since 1875, when Pierre Babolat created the first strings made of natural gut. Babolat continued to focus on strings until 1994, when it became a "total tennis" company, producing also racquet frames and selling them in Europe. It then expanded sales to Japan, and later to the United States in 2000. Sales of Babolat racquets increased rapidly in North America and Europe. Babolat is also a pioneer in connected sport technology and launched a connected tennis racket in 2014[1] and a connected wrist-worn tennis wearable with PIQ in 2015.[2] The Babolat Pop is used worldwide, and one of the leaders in tennis sensors.
