What is the best tennis racket for beginners ? This page gives you the 10 best beginners rackets you can buy.










The big question is, what makes a tennis racket ideal for a beginner ? In our opinion, for beginners, a racket should be fairly easy to use, have a nice mixture of power and control, and be neither too easy or too difficult to use. Most starters will not be able to control a racket that is too powerful (oversize head, very light weight) - the ball will just fly off the racket. On the other hand, if the racket has a small head and is too heavy, beginners will find it harder to time their swings, hit the sweet-spot, and get the right amount of power and direction on their shots.

Be sure to check out our other tennis departments and guides, including our section on "How to Choose a tennis racket"  which aims to help you find the tennis racket that is most suited to you and your ability.

Choose the Ultimate Control rackets if you are an accomplished player or are looking for ultimate control as you have a long, powerful swing.

Choose the Power & Spin rackets if you are looking for a nice mixture of power and control.

Choose the Intermediate rackets for the ultimate in power and forgiveness...easy on the arm and lightweight.

Many of these tennis rackets come pre-strung from the manufacturers in strings and tensions which are suitable for the majority of players. If you do prefer a specific string or tension on a factory strung racket, or are looking to purchase a 'Frame Only' racket, we provide an optional stringing service.

Selecting the right tennis racket is a deeply personal process for players. Factors such as playing style, skill level, and personal preference come into play. It's crucial to consider factors like racket weight, head size, balance, and grip size to find the perfect match that complements one's game.
