What size tennis racquet works best?

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.

How do you measure your grip size in tennis?

Importance of a proper grip size fit:A properly fitted grip will improve your control over the tennis racquet, enhancing your performance. A grip that is too small will allow the racquet to twist in your hand and can eventually lead to Tennis Elbow. A grip that is too large will decrease wrist snap on serves and prolonged use can also cause Tennis Elbow. It is easier, however, to build up a grip that is too small, than to modify a grip that is too large. So if guessing, go with the smaller size.How to choose the right size grip:Most adult tennis racquet grip sizes range from 4" to 4-5/8", and are at 1/8" intervals in between. The grip size refers to the circumference of the grip, measured in inches. One method of determining your grip size, involves measuring the size of your hand. To do this, place the end of a ruler at the bottom horizontal crease in the palm of your open racquet hand. Measure from this point to the tip of your ring finger. This is your ideal grip size. For example, in the illustration shown here the correct grip size is 4 1/2". If you are between sizes, go with the smaller size. You can always wrap on an Overgrip which typically adds about 1/16". Another popular method is gripping a racquet of known grip size, and observing the gap / amount of space between the fleshy part of the palm and fingertips. It is desirable to have a gap that you can just plug your index finger from your other hand into. If there is a lot of extra space, the grip is too big. If you can't fit a finger in the gap, the grip is much too small. You can extrapolate from there to approximate your correct grip size.

Different parts of a racket?

There are three parts of a tennis racquet. The part that you hold is the "grip". Above the grip is the "neck". Someone who holds their tennis racket by the neck is said to be "choking" their racquet; this is not the correct way to play. The part that you hit the ball with (and the largest part of the racquet) is called the "head". The part makes up the head is the "rim". As for a badminton racquet, I would assume that it's very similar.

What does your non-hitting hand do in tennis?

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.
