With so many tennis string constructions and materials available, it is interesting to know how they affect the dynamical behaviour when they are woven to form the string-bed. This article investigates the usefulness of a high-speed camera in developing mechanical properties of tennis string-beds. Experimental findings of the ball-string-bed interaction are presented. The results show how recordings of the string-bed’s displacement are processed to plot frequency for different materials. The change in frequency between two different gauges of the same material is also plotted. The results include a full response of the string-bed and a means by which damping characteristics can be determined.
