The best method for determining the grip size of a tennis racket is to measure the length between the tip of the ring finger (on your hitting hand) and the second line on your palm. This picture shows how to do this best. The measured length in ‘mm’ corresponds to the perimeter of the tennis racket handle.
Simply so, what size should my racket be?
Racquet Length Chart
|6-8 years||45-49 inches||23 inches|
|9-10 years||50-55 inches||25 inches|
|10 or older||55 inches or taller||26 inches|
|Adults||Any height||27-29 inches|
In respect to this, how do you measure a tennis racket for a child?
The measurement is the length of the racket — from the base of the handle to the top edge of the frame, in a straight line. A good way to check the measurement is: Have your child stand up straight. Stand the racket — handle upwards — next to their foot on their playing side (e.g. right foot if they’re right handed)
What grip size do I need for tennis?
The main rule with grip size is that you want a handle big enough so that there is some space between the tips of your fingers and your hand (like the image on the left). If your fingers go all the way around the handle and run back into your hand (like the image on the right), you need a larger grip size.
What age should a child use a full-size tennis racquet? Most kids won’t graduate to a full-sized 27-inch tennis racquet until they’re age 13 or older and roughly 60 inches or five feet tall. With that said, it’s important not to rush your child into a full-sized racquet.
