Here are some guidelines to keep in mind when you want to buy the perfect tennis racket for your kids:
- You must know that the regular rackets used by adults are not suitable for kids. You need to choose one for their size.
Tell your kid to hold the racket by their side with the hand by the body. If the racket is too small, it won’t touch the ground. If it touches the ground too much, it is big.
Check out a couple of rackets till you find the right one.
- Rackets from aluminium are lightweight and comfortable to use. If you are looking for power in the racket, choose one with a graphite frame.
- On average, rackets weigh between 200-260g and would be best suited to learning tennis.
- The grip size is important. Without the proper grip, it is difficult to swing the racket.
When your kid holds the racket, there should be sufficient space between the palm and the middle finger. If not, it is too small.
