Choosing your grip size

Date Posted:13 April 2023 

Let's grip it and rip it, shall we? Choosing the right grip size for your tennis racquet is like finding the perfect fit for your favorite pair of shoes. Too small, and your hand will slip like a banana peel on a wet floor. Too large, and your hand will feel like it's wearing a boxing glove.

To measure your grip size, grab a ruler and measure the distance between the tip of your ring finger and the second crease of your palm. This will help you identify the grip size that's right for you. Grip sizes typically range from 4 inches to 4 ¾ inches, so there's no need to feel like Goldilocks searching for the perfect porridge.

Keep in mind that grip size is a personal preference, and what works for your tennis buddy may not work for you. It all depends on your hand size and how you hold the racquet. So, if you have smaller hands, go for a smaller grip size, and if you have larger hands, opt for a larger grip size.

Oh, and don't forget that you can modify the grip size by adding an overgrip or removing the base grip. It's like accessorizing your racquet to match your style and comfort needs.

In a nutshell, finding the right grip size is key for comfort, control, and preventing injuries. So, grab your ruler, measure up, and get ready to serve up some aces!
