Junior Tennis Rackets

How to choose the right size Junior Tennis Racket: The most important thing about junior rackets is the size (literally the length in inches of the rackets). We have made the process of choosing really easy for you. All you have to do is measure the height of the young person and pick from one of the following :

  • For Age 10 to 12 (4 ft 8 in. to 5 ft 2 in.) pick a 26 inch racket.
  • For Age 8 to 10 (4 ft 4 in. to 4 ft 8 in.) pick a 25 inch racket.
  • For Age 6 to 8 (3 ft 11 in. to 4 ft 4 in.) pick a 23 inch racket.
  • For Age 5 and 6 (under 3 ft 11 in.) pick a 21 inch racket.
  • For Age 2 to 4, pick a 19 inch racket.
  • Any younger, go for a 17 inch racket.

There are no hard and fast rules on picking the right size racket, but a good guide is if the junior is holding the racket in a normal grip, then hold it straight down the side of the body and legs and if the racket is just touching the ground, its perfect. If the racquet is dragging, then the junior is likely to do that on court as well and might scrape or damage the racket. If the racket is then above the ground, its probably too small. If the junior is physically very strong or a strong player, then can handle a bigger size. You can always go smaller if you think the junior cannot handle the recommended size.

Junior Graphite Rackets are serious rackets made of the same materials as adult rackets, and in most cases provide the same performance as the adult equivalent counterparts. Junior Aluminium Rackets are perfect as starter rackets or for those on a budget. Junior Composite Rackets are mid-range rackets constructed from a mixture of graphite and aluminium. If the junior plays a lot, has coaching and is really keen, it's well worth going for a graphite racket.
