Today's tennis rackets are exclusively made from high-tech synthetics, which means that the time of those legendary wooden rackets has passed. Preferred materials are graphite, kevlar, fibreglass, and, of course, carbon. Visually, most rackets have an "open heart," meaning that the frame converges in two strands underneath the racket head.
In our shop, we have divided our tennis rackets into four main categories. At the same time, you can also look for specific brands whose rackets are again split up into different categories. Those main categories are:
When it comes to sports equipment, many have their favourite brands. If you want to pick your racket straight from your favourite tennis brand, we can offer the following ones:
No matter which racket attracts you most, we will string it according to your preferences by request. In some cases, the rackets have already been stringed ex-factory. However, we recommend replacing the original stringing with a new one after some time, which we offer as part of our service package.
Every single premium tennis racket you find at Tennis-Point distinguishes itself through a particular mix of features and details. Most manufacturers imprint those numbers on the frame, so you can check even after a few years, which are the ones that make your racket and what you are supposed to look for if you have improved your game and now want to find the right racket. Here, we will give you a quick overview of a tennis racket's features and what every single term stands for:
The world federation determines the basic features every tennis racket needs to comply with. This is binding for manufacturers, which also goes for a racket's length. It can measure up to 73.3 centimetres; however, you can hardly stroke the ball accurately with a racket that long. In reality, most rackets that are used worldwide are between 68.0 and 69.0 centimetres in length. Longer models improve leverage, which increases your range. On the other hand, shorter rackets facilitate handling and are therefore best suitable for beginners or slightly advanced players.
The size of a racket's head determines the amount of precision you need to hit the ball cleanly. Simply speaking, larger racket heads forgive more mistakes, while smaller ones help you accelerate the ball. Generally, pros carry the smallest head size available in their bags. If you are just getting started with tennis, you should aim for a larger racket head, though. On average, the heads of available tennis rackets measure 645 cm2 (100 inches).
In our shop, you can choose between rackets with heads sized as follows:
With a racket's weight, you affect the strength and precision you hit the ball with. Since they are trained accordingly and need maximum ball acceleration for their game, pros prefer heavy frames. In contrast, beginners are better off with lighter tennis rackets that are easier to handle. Tour rackets for above-average players, on the other hand, weigh way over 300 grams, which is why you need accurate technique and well-trained arms and shoulders. While club players usually pick rackets with a weight of around 300 grams, beginners should aim for models between 260 and 290 grams. Even lighter models work best for juniors. When picking your racket's weight, be aware that manufacturer specifications always determine the racket without strings. An average tennis stringing usually adds around 15 grams to a racket's basic weight.
Essentially, when picking your tennis racket, you choose from five different grip strengths, which describe the handle's diameter. All manufacturers use the same standardised grip strengths to facilitate comparisons, ranging from L1 (very narrow grip) to L5 (for lumberjack hands). If you want to determine your ideal grip strength, start by grabbing your racket's hold at the bottom with your striking hand. Now, there should be roughly enough room for your index finger between the ball of the thumb and your fingertips. However, the most critical factor when looking for the right grip strength is that you feel comfortable grabbing it. Many players, therefore, tend to use smaller grips because that helps to manoeuvre their tennis racket more accurately.
Another factor you need to consider is a tennis racket's balance point. It tells you if the racket is balanced, heavier at the head, or the grip. Models that are head heavy accelerate the ball more quickly while facilitating strokes like topspins. On the other hand, a grip heavy racket increases your level of control. Therefore, it is particularly popular among tournament and pro players who do not need their racket's support to hit hard. If you look at the average racket length of 68 centimetres, an even balance point lays at 34 centimetres. When below 33 centimetres, we hold a grip heavy racket. Models whose balance point lays over 34 centimetres are head heavy.
The stringing affects how easily you can spin the ball forward or backward (provided you strike correctly). Most tennis rackets are sold with an 18 x 20 pattern. However, since the sport has sped up, 16 x 19 stringings have caught on over the years. With those models, the gap between the strings is bigger, which helps you spin even when you hit the ball hard. As a rule of thumb, keep in mind: the more significant the gap between the strings, the deeper every single string cuts into the ball. Hence, broad-meshed stringings facilitate topspin and slice. If the gap is narrower, the strings cannot cut as deeply into the ball, which ultimately allows for more control with less impact on your hitting arm. Another aspect: narrow stringings are a bit more durable than the wider ones.
There is a lot of theory involved when looking for a tennis racket tailored to your game and preferences. That is why we have developed our racket advisor. This tool assembles all parameters correctly after you have provided a bit of information about your style of play and preferences. This way, you can pick a racket that helps you be successful on the court without needing expertise. Moreover, here, we offer you the opportunity to test tennis rackets on attractive terms.
