At Rackets Kingdom, we try and simplify by separating in 3 simple categories when trying to choose a new tennis racket. Social, intermediate and Advance.

Social tennis players: You are someone who plays occasional/seasonal Tennis along with other sports. You might not have decided to join a club yet. In this care you may want to consider Comfort as your main priority, as your technique may not be great right now. We would recommend a tennis racket that is more forgiving and kinder to your arm. This will help keep injury free and keep you playing on court enjoying your tennis for longer.

Intermediate tennis player: You are someone who is belong of a tennis club/LTA park program, and play at least a couple of times a week. Intermediate tennis racket range is more focused on mid to heavier weight giving you effortless power and perfect for an improving your game.

Advance tennis player: All of the above but you are someone who plays 3-4 times a week and Tennis is your main sport of choice. Generally speaking, here, you tend to go for heavier and stiffer frames mainly focusing on precision. As an advance player you bring power to the table so combining that with precision focused tennis rackets you have the winning formula for a consistent tennis player.


WIEGHT: This is one of the main and probably the most important factor to consider. You have light, mid weight and heavy. All manufacturers would normally produce each range of rackets in 4 to 5 different weights to suit all style of players. Generally, you have the lighter tennis rackets at around 230grams unstrung and heavier at 340grams unstrung. Lighter rackets tend to be head heavy balance and with larger than normal head sizes. Heavier rackets tend to be even or head light balance. Lighter rackets are easier to swing although you have to swing harder to get depth in your shots. Heavier rackets are a little slower to swing, but the plough through of the racket swing weight makes it more powerful. Lighter rackets although easier to swing will not absorb as much ball vibration on contact when compared with the heavier weights. Heavier tennis rackets tend to absorb more shock and are a lot more stable to use.

HEADSIZE: This is referring to the circumference of the racket head. In general, from the current range of tennis rackets form most leading manufacturers the smaller head sizes tend to be around 95 sq. inches and the larger ones at 120 sq. inches. Then you have Yonex tennis rackets that have isometric head shapes which are very different/smarter that a conventional round head shapes you are used to seeing in the shops.Yonex tennis rackets give you a larger sweet spot without compromising on the head size.

Larger head sized rackets give you more surface area to hit with, whereas the smaller head sized frames tend to be aimed at an advanced player who normally is early on the ball. Asmentioned in the weight section, its mainly the lighter weight rackets that tend to be available in larger head sizes which are aimed mainly for social player’s or perhaps some one that may not be as fast on the court. The bench mark is 100 sq. inches so anything above that is referred to as over size and anything less is usually for advance players looking for more precision.

GRIP SIZE: This is usually referring to the circumference of the tennis racket handle. Each tennis rackets come in 4 or 5 different grip sizes. A bit like your shirt size or shoes perhaps. It’s important that you don’t get this bit wrong. You can end up with a grip which is too small, and you will end up over squeezing, which may result in the over use of the forearm muscle.Thiscan result as a contributing factor to a tennis elbow issue. Alternatively, you may get a grip that is too big and that also will give you tennis elbow.Furthermore, it restricts your wrist movement, especially on the forehand shorts.

Getting a Grip – our guide to the best grip size for you.

Its best if you use our simple ‘grip guide’ pictures to help you judge the best size for you.

  a ‘first finger’ between your fingers (as shown in the pictures) is usually a good place to start.

Keep in mind that if you use an over grip (which we really recommend) then that will add about half a grip size. So don’t forget to factor that in to your sizing decision.

Don’t pay too much attention to the stated sizes for the racquets that the pros use. An awful lot of customisation goes in to pro racquets after they have been delivered from the factory. Sizes of grips and shapes of grips are often subtly altered to suit each pro.

Lastly, if you have a sore elbow or wrist try putting an over grip on your racquet and see if that helps. Lots of wrist and elbow trouble occurs because players squeeze too tightly racquets with grips that are too small (and/or frames that are too light). This quick fix is not guaranteed to work, but it’s certainly worth a try.
