In the sport of Tennis, the most predominate lever used is the third class lever. The fulcrum is attached to the lever; applying this to Tennis it is represented as the shoulder being attached to the body. The force however, is located in the center of the axis; in Tennis on the human body this is the arm. Resistance or the load is positioned at the furthest point from the fulcrum, the Tennis racquet is the load in Tennis.
Demonstrate how it is a class 3 lever, with the length of the equipment being the lever arm, the hand gripping at the end is the fulcrum and the other hand (most sports) or the index finger of the fulcrum hand (tennis racquet) produces the force of the swing (the "force in" on the image, or the "effort"). The ball will be hit at the other end of the lever from the fulcrum (the "force out" on the image or the "load").

A third-class lever. The tennis racket is much longer and heavier than a racqetball racket as the handle is much shorter.
The tennis serve uses the third class lever system, as the racquet is extended to the fullest, generating the greatest force. Both the arm and the racquet are defined as third class levers. According to Wuest and Fisette (2012) This lever is a third class lever movement with the force being between the fulcrum and the resistance, the favors range of motion and speed.
Third - class levers. The effort is positioned between the fulcrum and the load, then the lever is called a third - class lever. The broom acts as a third - class lever because, it traded and increase in force for an increase in speed. e.g broom, tennis racquet, cricket bats, golf clubs, tweezers and tongs.
This makes it a first class lever, unless you are swinging on an inside curl, not a normal swing, in which case it would be a third class lever. The difference is biceps (third class) versus...
The tennis serve is a third class lever system. In this system the angular velocity is greater when the further the resistance is from the force. Therefore when serving a tennis ball an athlete will maximise the speed of the serve if they connect at the highest point.
held in the hand. Third-class levers allow you to do fast movements such as throwing, kick-ing, or swinging a tennis racket. When you kick a ball, you use the bones of the upper leg, the lower leg, and the foot as third-class levers.
