The Slazenger Challenge was one of the most popular rackets in Australia during the 1960s and 1970s and was used by Ken Rosewall, John Newcombe and Margaret Court (Smith). The Royal Crown racket was a lesser grade racket during that time. Use of the term Slazenger or Slazengers varies from racket to racket and era to era. The Challenge racket was made until the end of the wood era (around 1982).
