Hi Coach,

I have encountered a strange thing.

Recently I played with a friend of mine and his racket made no sound (or almost inaudible) whenever he made contact with the ball. This is really confusing because I can't tell how hard his shots are. Is there a way to counter this?

Also, is there a way to make a racket absorb sound of the impact of the ball? Or is it some miracle bat?

I would love to know!

Hi Man-Fung,

It does sound like something weird.  A rubber can only have a certain thickness of sponge.  The sponge is what will make is sound softer as the ball isn't sinking into the wood of the racket.

See if you can find out what type of racket it is.
