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.
Accordingly, how do you size a tennis racket for a child?
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!)
Then, 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.
