26 in. racquets are generally for kids ages 11-12, who have played tennis for a few years or are able to handle swinging a longer racquet. If the junior is above the age of 12, we recommend that you look at purchasing an adult racquet ranging in length between 27 – 27.25 inches.

Keeping this in consideration, how do you size a tennis racket?
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 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.

The best tennis racket brands in 2021 are Dunlop, Prince, Tecnifibre, Yonex, Head, Babolat, and Wilson. … These brands have been around for a while, and are known to make high-quality racquets that are good for both professional players and beginners.
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.
The standard length for an adult tennis racquet is 27 inches, but racquets are available in lengths ranging from 26.5 to 29 inches (29 inches is the legal maximum for tournament play). … Many power racquets are lighter to keep them maneuverable even at longer lengths.
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.
