How to measure a kid’s tennis racket
- 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)
- Your child should be able to comfortably hold the tip of the handle with their fingers (no leaning over or stretching!)

However, if your child has been playing tennis for several years now, a smaller-sized racket will suffice. They’ve likely learned to be accurate when hitting tennis balls, which means they don’t need a big sweet spot.
When choosing a racket, there are three elements which affect power and control: headsize, weight, and string pattern.
- Larger Headsize = More Power; Smaller Headsize = More Control.
- Lighter Racket = More Power; Heavier Racket = More Control.
- Open Stringbed = More Power; Denser Stringbed = More Control.
These rackets all come pre-strung and are recommended based on age and height rather than skill level. The smallest racket Wilson makes is 17 inches and is meant for really young kids, aged 2-3, while the slightly longer 19-inch racket can be used for kids up to 4 years old.
