Racquets

Racket groups

Choosing a racquet that fits is not always as easy. We will try to help you as much as possible by giving you the possibility to test a racquet in advance and by providing correct information about a certain frame. To make the choice easier we use the following groups:

Head size
  • Oversize (large head size / ± 105 sq. Inch or more): These racquets provide a lot of comfort and power and have a great sweetspot.
  • Midplus (average head size / ± 95 - 105 sq. Inch): These racqets provide a combination of comfort / power / control and have an average sweetspot.
  • Midsize (small head size / smaller than 95 sq. Inch): These racqets provide a lot of control and have a small sweetspot.

Below are some important aspects that can help you make the right choice.

Sweetspot

The optimum touch surface for maximum power and control.

Longbody

Longer racquets (longer than 68.5 cm) have both advantages and disadvantages:

  • More reach;
  • More power (especially noticeable in service and groundstrokes);
  • Less control;
  • Less handling (especially noticeable on body shots).
Level/Play

Generally speaking, tennis players with a limited technique and lower swing power want a racquet with a lot of power. Tennis players with a good technique and often a higher swing power, on the other hand, want a racquet with a lot of control. They usually get power from their technique.

A recreational player will in most cases prefer a racquet that feels light and viable. Advanced / top players often choose a stiff frame that is heavier and therefore has more control.

In between there is the group of players looking for a combination of power and control. This is the largest group.

Grip size

The correct grip size is also of great importance. This can be measured by grabbing the racquet and placing your thumb straight up. Now place the index finger of the other hand between the thumb and other fingers. If the index finger exactly matches, you have the correct grip size. If the index finger does not fit between them, the grip is too small. If you have space left then the grip is too big. Personal preference also plays a major role in choosing the grip size.

Strings

Which string is appropriate?

The choice of string and tightness is determined by a number of factors:

  • The player/play; defender/attacker, level, topspin, and so on;
  • Surface; clay, hardcourt, indoor, and so on;
  • Weather conditions; dry/humid weather;
  • Head size; midsize/midplus/oversize;
  • Price category; cheap or expensive;
  • Desired thickness of the string (1.10 to 1.40).

Below are some common facts that can help you choose the right string:

  • Thinner strings (great elasticity) give more power than thicker strings;
  • Thinner strings give more grip (spin) on the ball;
  • Thicker strings give more durability;
  • Soft strings or strings with a soft coating give a better vibration damping.

Impact of tension on the playing characteristics of a racquet:

Softer tension
  • More ball acceleration;
  • Less ball control;
  • More vibration;
  • More trampoline effect;
  • More comfort.
Higher tension
  • Less ball acceleration;
  • More ball control;
  • Less vibration;
  • Less trampoline effect;
  • Less comfort.

The average tension of a racquet is ± 25/24 kg. The lower your tension relative to the average, the stronger the properties get mentioned under softer tension. The higher your tension is compared to the average, the stronger the properties get mentioned under higher tension.
