Tennis rackets can be strung up to a much higher tension than squash rackets. Unlike Squash and Badminton rackets, the size of the racket head plays a big part in the range of tensions that the racket can be strung. As with squash and badminton rackets, a racket strung at a higher tension yields more control, whereas a racket strung at a lower tension yields more power. The various tension ranges are illustrated below:
