Considering this, what age should a child use a full size tennis racket?
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.
Beside above, how do you know what size tennis racket you need?
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.
What size tennis racket does a 10 year old need?
A racquet sizing chart for children
|4-5 years||40-44 inches||21 inches|
|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|
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.
Generally speaking, a light racquet will be more maneuverable; a heavy racquet will be more stable. Beginners should choose a racquet that weighs somewhere between 9.5 and 11 ounces – on the heavier end if you’re strong or relatively athletic.
Ruler Test: To measure grip size using the ruler test, first place the fingers of your racket hand together, then align a ruler’s edge with the the bottom horizontal crease of your palm. Next, measure to the tip of your ring finger, this measurement is your grip size.
Another method for finding the right sized racket is based on size rather than age.
- 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)
Measuring Your Grip Size
Manufactured tennis racquet grip sizes range from less than 4” for juniors to 4 7/8” for the largest adult hands.
