What are bumper guards on tennis racquets?

Avoiding Racket Cracks

Avoid impacts with hard objects or court surfaces which may cause cracks or breakage in the frame. Tennis Racquets have bumper guards or head tape that protect the tennis racquet from on-court scrapes. If the bumper shows excessive wear or exposes the frame, replace both the bumper guard and the grommet strips.
