The word for today is tennis. Below is the first icon I created. It's very basic and looks a lot more like a table tennis racket than it does a tennis racket.
I then tried to add detail to the design. I don't think this is very successful as the icon doesn't rescale due to the closeness of the paths.
I then tried to spread this out. I think this is quite successful, however still doesn't look as good as I think I can make it.
Finally, I got rid of a lot of the detail within the racket and added a tennis ball. I think this is very successful and it is clear that it is a tennis racket.
I then added colour and detail to the racket to show what it could look like if it were used.
