  • The grip must feel comfortable!
  • When evaluating your grip size, take into consideration if are going to use an overgrip.  An overgrip will build the grip up slightly, sometimes a full grip size.
  • Easier to build-up than take down a grip.  In fact most of the racquets today can not have the racquet handle reduced in size.  A racquet with a  Styrofoam pallet can have thegrip size reduced.  However most of today's lighter racquets remove the Styrofoam pallet because of weight constraints.
  • A proper fit will allow a "e;one-finger"e; spread between the palm and fingertips (shown in theright picture below).
  • Measure your grip by measuring the tip of the ring finger down to the bottom lateral crease of the thumb (shownin the left picture below).
  • Figuring Your Grip Size

    There are some basic facts to consider when determining the right grip size for your racquet. 

    • The right size is the bestsize, but being on the bigger side is better for tennis elbow.   Most players fall between sizes, with the bigger size being better for the  elbow. The right grip size allows you to grip the racquet handle comfortably without over squeezing. Any extra working necessary to hold on to the racquet can cause the muscles to fatigue in the forearm.  This is not good!
    What Grip Size Means... and How To Determine Your Current Grip Size

    Adult Grip Sizes range from 4 1/8"e; to 4 5/8"e; - in 1 inch increments.

    Junior Racquet Grip Sizes range from 3"e; to 4"e;.


    The butt cap of most racquets will display the grip size in one of two ways:
     

    1.  Full Grip Size in inches- (4 3/8, for example)
  • Displays a number
  • (1,2,3,4 0r 5) whichmeans the "e;number of eighths"e;(4/8"e;- assuming the number "e;4"e; as the inch indicator).
    • For example, a number "e;3"e; would indicate a grip size of4 3/8"e;-  a number "e;5"e; would indicate a grip size of4 5/8"e;, and so on.
