Mikael Applegren was one of Sweden’s all-time great players. He is a 4-time World Champion and 9-time European Champion. Teaming with Jan Ove Waldner and Jorgen Persson, they were the team that finally ended China’s dominance as the #1 team in the world in the late eighties and early nineties, winning the World Team Championships 3 times in a row. This namesake racket set honors Applegren’s great accomplishments.
The high quality set offers excellent quality for the price and consists of 4 Applegren 300 Level Rackets, a Classic Net Set, 3 Training Balls, and a handy carrying case for storage, transport, and keeping your set all in one place. The 5-ply rackets are ITTF-legal with red/black 1.5mm Jade inverted rubber and a flared ergonomic handle. These rackets offer high control, perfect for all-round players like Applegren who excelled at strategically placed, controlled shots with sudden flashes of fast play.
The net includes sturdy steel net posts and clamps and a green nylon net with steel ends. The steel ends slip easily over the posts and give rigid structure to the net ends. The posts can be pushed in or out to tension the net, or relieve tension between playing sessions. There are two 40mm white balls and one orange ball so you’re sure to have the right one for best visibility in a variety of playing conditions. A very good 4-player set that gives you all the basic gear you need to enjoy playing singles or doubles with friends or family.
