How to choose a tennis racquet

Do you want to know how to choose a tennis racquet? Learning how to choose a tennis racquet is not simple. Learning how to choose a tennis racquet involves many different aspects.

This article will help you learn how to choose a tennis racquet; but to learn this information, you do not simply need to know more about racquets, you must know about yourself and your own playing ability and skills.

In general you will find that tennis racquets are divided into three main categories:

• Power racquets, suitable for beginners and middle intermediates.
• Tweeners racquets, suitable for intermediate to advanced players.
• Control racquets, suitable for advanced players.

Basically, if you are just starting out in the game, or if you very rarely play, you are going to want a power racquet. Power racquets are very suitable for those who how shorter, weaker strokes. Power racquets tend to have larger heads – having a larger head gives a tennis racquet a larger “sweet spot” and a larger hitting spot, in general. A larger head also gives a racquet more power.

Power tennis racquets are also head-heavy or balanced. In other words, the head of the racquet is heavier than (or equal to) the weight of the handle. These racquets have great maneuverability and still retain great power.

Tweener racquets are lighter than power racquets. Some are head heavy, others are balanced, and others are head-light. They are generally longer than power racquets – the extra length cn be helpful with groundstrokes. Tweener racquets still retain some power, but have a bit more control than power racquets.

Control racquets have a lot of control and added precision. They do not have as much power as either power racquets or tweeners, but that is ok – the people that use control racquets can create their own power. Generally, control racquets have smaller head sizes and heavier weights.

This guide is only a starting point on how to choose a tennis racquet. If you want to know more on how to choose a tennis racquet, it is a good idea to check out different reviews of racquets. Also, read up on tennis weight, balance, frame size, length, and other topics related to tennis racquets.

I hope that this guide on how to choose a tennis racquet has helped you in your search for the perfect tennis racquet for you.
