grip size on tennis rackets is the diameter of the handle on the bottom of the tennis racket.
Grip tape is needed to have good tension with your racquet, the better you can hold the racquet the better of your game
One common grip, the Western, makes the grip appear to look like the handle of a frying pan, which is exactly how tennis teaching professionals instruct their students to hold the racquet.
The size of tennis racquet you choose is really a personal preference. Basically, tennis racquets come in a mid-size and oversize. The mid-size racquet has a smaller tennis face and less surface area of tennis strings. Mid-size racquets are more compact and usually lighter. They are easier to swing and move around quickly. Serve and volley type players often prefer the smaller mid-size racquet. An oversize racquet has a large surface area of tennis strings. This can make the racquet feel heavier and it is more difficult to swing the racquet around quickly. However, the "sweet" spot on the racquet is larger. The sweet spot is where you want the ball to hit your strings more maximum effectiveness. Players that hug the baseline tend to enjoy using an oversize racquet. You can always "demo" different racquets at your tennis club to see which size is best for you. Your tennis pro can also give you great reccomendations.
no becaues it would not be strong enouph.
Your non-hitting hand holds the tennis racquet at the throat (below the strings but above the grip), so when you are getting ready for a shot, your non-hitting hand moves the tennis racquet back so your hitting hand does not get tired of moving the racquet back and swinging at the ball.

There are a few different grips you use in tennis. The different grips include: the Continental Grip, Eastern Grip, Western Grip, Semi-Western Grip, and two-handed backhand grip. Let's start with the Continental Grip. You would use this grip when you are at the net hitting volleys and overheads. You will also use it when serving. You hold the racquet like a hammer with the "V" of your thumb and index finger on the narrower edge of the racquet grip. You'll want to use the Eastern Grip when you wish to hit ground storkes that are flat or have topspin. Hold the racquet with the "V" slightly off to the right. You'll want to use the Western Grip when you want to use extreme topspin. This grip is a preferred grip of clay court players because topspin rules on clay. The "V" extremely far off to the right. You'll want to use the Semi-Western Grip when you want to add power and you are a baseliner. You can either hit topsin or flat with this grip. The "V" is between that of the Eastern Grip and the Western Grip. It is recommended to have a Tennis professional demonstrate the different grips for you, so that you are doing them properly.
Tennis racquet overgrips (i.e., a wrapper that goes around the grip (handle) of a tennis racquet (also, golf clubs, baseball bats, hockey sticks, etc) for extra holding power and to protect the underlying surface) come in many thicknesses and materials, so there is no set answer. A general number would be about 4 grams or 0.14 ounces.
Tennis rackets are now built exclusively by machine. The frame is built first, followed next by the grip and the wiring. Videos of rackets being built can be found on YouTube.
Legally, in competition, no. The size and shape of a racquetball racquet is specific to the structural integrity and overall safety of the racquet.
