Average or Most Common Size Grip
A size 3 or 4 3/8 grip is the most common, and you’ll find a lot of crossover between men and women at this size. The vast majority of women will play with a grip size that’s a size 1, 2, or 3. Men, on the other hand, will typically have a size 3, 4, or 5.
The right grip size makes a huge difference in how a racquet performs. … If there is space between your finger and palm, the grip is too big.

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.
