Technique For Choosing The Best Tennis RacquetStep 1

Consider your level of play. There are tennis rackets that are made specifically for beginners, intermediate players, and experts. Beginners will do best choosing a light racquet. More experienced tennis players should use a heavier racket with a light racket head.

Step 2

Consider the grip size. Measure your hand carefully and select the grip size that will feel comfortable while swinging your racket. Your tennis pro or salesperson can help you out with this.

Step 3

Consider the size of the racket head. There are 3 different sizes to choose from: Mid size, Mid plus, and Oversize. The larger tennis racket heads will have a larger sweet spot, making it easier to hit a tennis ball well.

Step 4

Consider the length of the racket. The standard racket length for adults is 27 inches, although longer tennis rackets are made. Though more difficult to move around, the advantage of a longer racket is increased power in serves.

Step 5

Consider the weight. Weights can vary between 8 to 12.5 ounces when a racket is unstrung. The weights of tennis rackets are not balanced evenly, and could be heavier in the racket's handle or heavier in the head.

Step 6

Consider the material. Tennis rackets are made of things such as aluminum, graphite, titanium, fiberglass, and Kevlar. Graphite tennis rackets are widely considered to be superior to other materials.

Step 7

Consider if you want your racket to be unstrung, or already strung when you get it. If you get a racket that is unstrung, be prepared to select a string for your racket before you can play any tennis.

Step 8

Consider the price. Higher priced rackets do have a wider range of features for more serious players, but a lower priced racket is sufficient for the recreational tennis player.
