engine1946, shortly after the end of World War II, Yonex began as Yoneyama Company, Ltd, founded by Minoru Yoneyama, a manufacturer of wooden floats for fishing nets. Yoneyama's wooden business grew rapidly until modern developments - particularly plastic floats - put the company out of business. Frustrated at being displaced by advancing technology, he vowed never to be left behind technologically and committed to constant innovation in future ventures.
of wooden racketsBuilding on its strengths in woodworking, the Yoneyama company began manufacturing badminton rackets in 1957 as the original equipment supplier for the Sanbata racket brand. Today, Yonex manufactures its own tennis rackets, golf clubs, snowboards, racing bikes, tennis and badminton strings and much more. Over the years, Yonex has learned that "the most difficult situations create the greatest opportunities" - and this spirit continues in its mission to enrich the world with sports through high-quality products.
The first Yoneyama racket
With the bankruptcy of Sanbata in 1961 and the burning of Yoneyama's production headquarters in 1963, the 1960s became a real test of the spirit of creating opportunities in difficult situations. Despite these setbacks, Yoneyama established Yoneyama Sports Co, Ltd. to manufacture Yoneyama-branded rackets, rebuilt the factory in three days, and expanded into the United States and Europe during this pivotal decade.
In 1965, the factory in Tokyo opened its doors for the production of shuttlecocks - today Yonex is the official tournament racket of all major events of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) as well as the Olympic Games since 1992 in Barcelona.
In 1969, Yonex expanded into the tennis industry with the T-7000 aluminium racket.

To improve the widely popular T-7000, Yonex developed the Oval Pressed Shaft (OPS), which allowed for a stronger, more stable racket and was used in the T-7500.
In 1973, the "YY Yoneyama" logo is introduced and eight-time (seven times in a row) All England Open badminton champion and badminton icon Rudy Hartono starts playing with Yonex.

Yonex's iconic square ISOMETRIC™ racket was first introduced in 1980 with the launch of the R-1, R-2 and R-3. That same year, Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova began playing with Yonex.
In 1983, Navratilova won the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open in both singles and doubles with the best-selling R-22 racket.
In 1984, Yonex becomes the title sponsor of the sport's oldest and most prestigious tournament, the All England Open Badminton Championships.
In 1989, Yonex introduces the ADX 200 in the United States, the wide-body graphite driver that changes the game of golf. The ADX 200 entered the Guinness Book of Records with the longest drive of 412 yards.
In 1990, Navratilova won her 9th Wimbledon title with the wide RQ-180, and in 1991 Monica Seles became the youngest player to become a world number one.
