When you purchase a racket the first thing you need to pay attention is the size of the handle. It is recommended to choose as much as possible the handle - this will allow you to feel much more comfortable and confident in the game. To check how well you fit the chosen handle, you can use the following technique: first, any of the arms, take the racket (the hand should grasp the handle, then the index finger of the other hand drop into the space between the fingers and palm of the hand that holds the racket. If the width of this gap is equal to your index finger, it means that the racket suit you completely.
You then need to determine the head size of the racket, it is of several options:- racket Oversize and Super Oversize suitable for those people who prefer to play in pairs or stand on the back of the line, as this type of racquet allows you to perform the most powerful kicks, spin and cut the ball. However, newcomers have a head size can only lead to the increase in the number of inaccurate shots;
- racket Mid Size and Mid Plus provide better control of the shot. In addition, the size Mid Plus has a more powerful impact.
The rim thickness typically ranges from 18 to 30 millimeters. It is thicker, the stronger the flow and tougher she a tennis racket. When choosing a rim, remember that in case you prefer to perform quick shots, you need a thin rim. The thicker will be the rim, the more the chance of failing to hit the ball on it. To get rid of such problems is possible only through regular training.
Length of racket is 27 to 29 inches (this is set by the rules). The longer you pick up the racket, the more powerful will get a shot.
The last thing to check is balance. Take the racket in the middle, so you check her balance. If the racquet tends to the side of the head, it is designed to play on the back line. If on the contrary, for filing. Professionals prefer to use tennis rackets balanced in the center.
