What Is The Best Tennis Racket Grip Size? – The One That Feels Right.

Not only will it feel right but you will also avoid any problems associated with tennis elbow.

To avoid Tennis Elbow a racket grip size should be neither too small or too big.

The USA grip sizes for Tennis Rackets range from 4 – 4 3/4

If you’ll be using an over-grip you’ll want to reduce your usual grip size by about 1/2 or a full grip size, as over-grips add about 1/16 to 1/8.

It’s always easier to build up a Tennis Racket grip rather than trying to reduce the size.

Also you should consider the type of forehand grip you use to play with. Eastern or Continental forehand grips have less distance to travel when changing from forehand to backhand.

Therefore a slightly larger grip is needed. If you use a Semi-Western to Western forehand grip, a smaller grip is better.

There are 2 basic ways to measure Tennis Racket grip size.

The first is to hold the racket with an Eastern or Continental grip and then see if you can place your index finger between the third finger and the base of your thumb. If there is not enough room there, then the grip is too small and you may need an over-grip to build it up.

If there is too much space there, then you will be inhibiting the ability to snap the wrist on serves and overheads, also making the forehand to backhand grip change more difficult.

Prolonged use of too small or too big of a grip contributes to Tennis Elbow.

The second method of measuring Tennis Racket grip size, is to get a wooden ruler and measure the distance from the second lateral palm line of your hand to the end of the ring finger. That should be your ideal grip size, including the build up of an over grip.

The best choices for Tennis Racket over-grips are the Wilson Pro Over-grip. It’s absorbent but with a slight tackiness, it has a cushy feel and comes in white, green and pink. Next would be the Yonex Super Over-grip which is slightly more tacky and less absorbent. It’s also slightly thinner and is available in more colors to match your Tennis Racket colors.
Finally the choice of most tennis pros is Tourna-Grip. It’s very thin and absorbent and also comes in a tacky version. It feels great but because of it’s thinness doesn’t last as long as thicker grips.

Once you’ve determined your ideal grip size, make a trip to your local sporting goods store and try swinging some rackets with different grip sizes to get a feel for what’s right for you.
