SIZE & GRIP
- Racquets with a narrow profile, or beam width, are flexible with a maneuverable feel.
- A wide-profile racquet offers increased power and a larger sweet spot.
- Novices should choose a mid-profile racquet that balances power and control.
- Every player has an individual preference for grip feel.
Similarly one may ask, what size squash racket should I get?
Squash rackets vary in weight between 110g & 160g. Lighter weight rackets are great for more manoeuvrability and fast movement. You get more power with heavier rackets, but these are harder to move around quickly. A few years ago, the fashion was to go for lighter and lighter rackets.

What squash balls do professionals use?
The Dunlop Pro Squash Ball is the official ball at all national and international tournaments. The Pro has the lowest bounce and requires a good technique by both players. The ball with a single yellow dot is called the Competition Squash ball. It´s the best choice for quite an experienced player.
A lighter squash racket is generally the best choice if your style of play is aggressive, fast and involves snapping through the ball in order to make directional changes (Such as the Dunlop Aerogel 4D Pro GT-X).
Medium Weight Squash Rackets (130g – 140g)
This weight range is what most players go for, including professionals. They provide a good trade-off between power and maneuverability.
You should not use a tennis racket to play squash because they are far heavier than squash rackets, and could result in wrist and shoulder injuries. A tennis racket would also sap stamina much quicker, and would be hard to swing hard enough to get force into your shots. All in all, don’t do it!
