An adhesive sports tape windable about the handle of a sports appliance such as a tennis racquet to create a sheath thereabout which acts not only to enhance the grip of the handle but also as pneumatic cushioning minimizing the transmission of shock forces from the handle to the hand of the player. The tape is formed by a flexible band having an open-cell foam plastic core and opposing, gas-impermeable facing skins. The inner skin is coated with a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer to adhere the tape to the handle. The outer skin of the tape when the sheath is formed, is engaged by the hand of the player. The gas filling the cells of the core is entrapped within the tape by the skins, whereby when the tape-formed sheath is manually compressed by the player, it seeks to rebound to its original shape, thereby providing a pneumatic cushioning action. The surface of the skins is irregular, thereby enhancing the grip characteristics of the sheath.
