Thereof, what is the difference between a tennis grip and an overgrip?
Grips are either replacement grips OR overgrips. A replacement grip can be applied directly onto the handle of a racquet, they have a sticky backing and offer a reasonable amount of cushioning. An overgrip, on the otherhand, does not have a sticky backing and is typically much thinner.

A general rule you can follow is to replace your overgrip every 6-8 hours of play, and your replacement grip 1-3 times per year.
So, do you need an overgrip for your tennis racquet? Yes. A racquet overgrip is necessary to preserve the original grip, add more cushion, absorb sweat and keep it from slipping in your hands. You might be on the fence about it.
Overgrip is the unsung hero of tennis. … Tennis overgrip is a long strip of material that is wrapped around and adheres to the grip or handle of your racket. Overgrip is designed to make it easier for you to maintain control and feel with the ball when things get, let’s say, a bit sweaty.
It’s not a good idea to use an overgrip as the replacement grip because they are thinner and not as durable. … If you find your grip is too thick with the original grip and an overgrip (but you still want to use the overgrip), then you might want to take the original grip off and just use two overgrips.
