How to Choose the Perfect Tennis Racket for your Game
A lot of people buy tennis racket whatever their favorite player is using, instead of looking at what will actually suit their style of play. It is one of the common mistake people do as we are individuals and it’s important that the racket you choose is the racket you like the feel of. Working of racket depend on what style of player you are, what you like to do and what you want to achieve.
Try to find a racquet that feels comfortable, because if you feel comfortable and confident then you will play better. Four things you must consider when choosing a tennis racquet are:
Check Weight of the Racket
The weight of the racket you choose should depend on your strength and how you swing it. Lighter rackets are easy to move and swing, and has balance of weight in the head. So when you hit the ball, the head drops and that’s where the weight comes into play. A heavier racket has more weight in the handle than the head, and is solid for those who play harder to the faster balls that come towards them.
It depends on your style of playing that whether you need a smaller head size that gives you more control or a larger head size that gives you bigger sweet spot i.e. the area on the strings where you get the maximum response from the racket. These more forgiving tennis rackets are generally more suited to beginners.
Strings are the most important part of the racket. They’re what give you power and control depending on the tension. The looser the strings the more power, the tighter the strings the more control you have. Tighter strings gives more control if you have a big swing, while if you have a slower swing you should have looser strings for more power.
If you hold the racket in your hand, you should have about a finger’s width distance between the tips of your fingers and the base of your palm. The wrong grip size can cause tennis elbow, and a worn out grip will cause you to grip the racket too hard and too firm and stiffen your arm up. The grip sizes convert from US sizes to UK sizes as follows with size 1 being the smallest and Grip size 5 is the largest:
4 1/8 = 1
4 1/4" = 2
4 3/8 = 3
4 1/2" = 4
4 5/8 = 5
Most juniors using full size tennis rackets choose grip size 1 or 2, most women opt for grip sizes 2 or 3 and most men opt for grip sizes 3 or 4.
