Etch swing

The ETCH-Swing is a very nice addition to anyone's conditioning arsenal.

Brad Gilbert

ETCH-Swing is great to use for tennis strength training, whether you’re working on your serve, forehand or backhand.

ETCH-Swing allows coaches to simultaneously combine a variety of elements of a technical practice such as footwork and stroke with a strengthening workout for more efficient and effective use of time and effort.

ETCH-Swing uses your own body weight and wind resistance from your swing, so it is safer and requires no additional weights.


ETCH-Swing has four blades on it which help build resistance when hitting tennis strokes. As you accelerate through the shot, ETCH-Swing creates a stronger resistance than you get using a normal racquet, even one with a weight attached.

I can tell in my matches that working with my

ETCH-Swing has been a huge help with my upper body strength. And it lets me combine my technical and my conditioning workouts to save time.
Jelena Jankovic - ranking #1 2008

ETCH-Swing works on sport-specific strength training by mimicking specific movements while introducing greater resistance, making your normal racquet feel much lighter and easier to use after training.


A significant factor in training with ETCH-Swing, and one that addresses a growing concern in the sport of tennis, is that it helps prevent injuries. How? As ETCH-Swing accelerates and decelerates, the wind slows it down after the stroke, not your shoulder, thus reducing the stress on your shoulder and arm. Other weight equipment currently in the marketplace can actually contribute to injury by placing too much pressure on vulnerable parts of the body.
