Hi everyone :)

I recently acquired two racquets and was wondering of their value. The two racquets are Slazenger Challenge 1 and Slazenger Challenge x-2. Both racquets have been used but are in decent condition but the Challenge x-2 has a replacement grip which is nothing like the original.

Thanks.

Welcome, leedsfan93! :)

Probably not worth very much, but of course, they are great racquets, especially the Challenge No 1, which I believe was produced in Australia and New Zealand, as well as in the UK.

I don't know too much about the x-2, but I'm sure someone here will be able to tell you something about it.

thanks i didnt think the x-2 was worth much but when i picked up the No 1 i thought it was a brilliant racquet and saw they were worth around $(AUS)180 on the net but please tell me if i'm wrong :lol:

90 quid seems a lot for a battered woody.

The Challenge no. 1 is a great old wood racquet, but there are tons of them. I got two recently on e b a y, both in just average condition, with some wear. One cost $9.99 US plus shipping, the other $1.04 plus shipping.

But the fact that they're available and inexpensive doesn't mean they're not fun to have and hit once in a while. IMO, Slazenger made some of the best wood frames ever.

Have fun with it.

hmm i wonder why that other one went for so much...
anyway i don't have many wooden frames but you could be right about them being the best
i fell in love with it when i picked it up lol

ur gotta be joking me. they were selling on e-bay for 90 pounds

But that's about 70 pounds too expensive - for one in mint condition. As far as the X2 is concerned, they are very common and, here in Australia, you wouldn't expect to pay more than $10 for one in good condition.

I don't see people rushing to bid, much less buy it outright, so yeah 90 pounds is way too much for this racquet.
