Take a look at our advice to help you choose your kids tennis racket!READ MORE
So your child has decided to give tennis a try, but you're having difficulty choosing a racket from the many available choices. How would you like a little help setting one apart from the others? Have a look at our tips to help you choose your child's tennis racket.
The choice of a junior racket is based first and foremost on the level at which your child plays, which will define your expectations with regard to the products available. In addition to this, the size of the racket in relation to your child is also important.
Whether your child is only just starting tennis or has been playing for a while, it is vital to choose a racket based on his or her playing level.
First and foremost the racket must be easy to handle. When your child is beginning, he or she might be playing anything from once a year to once a month. He or she will therefore need an aluminium, composite racket.
REGULAR AND INTENSIVE PRACTICE
Your child will be looking for power and tolerance. He or she will be playing between once and several times per week. In order to progress in his or her play, we recommend a graphite and composite racket with a racket with a contact surface of 654 cm² and that is head heavy.
The selection of a racket is then made based on the height of your child. It goes without saying that an adult racket will not be suitable for your child, especial when he or she is still a beginner.
