Buying Guide

Tennis Grips Buying Guide

When looking for a grip for your racket, let’s face it, there are loads to choose from, what are the key things to look for when choosing?

1. Type of Grip

Full Grip / Replacement Grip – Usually made of a synthetic compound and generally used by players that want 1 major grip on their racket. These are typically the most popular style of grip for players.

Leather Grip – These give players a firm response setup, these traditionally were the gold standard, usually players use these as their base for their handle and often wrap an overgrip on top.

Overgrip – This is placed over the top of a standard grip, it’s used to build the overall size of the handle, and is usually thinner than a regular grip. Typically you’ll see an over grip is particularly tacky and sticky to the hand.

2. What size of grip do I need?

Measure your tennis grip size with a ruler in your hand. Hold your hand open with your fingers fully extended and closed together, Next, measure from the bottom crease of your hand up to the top of the ring finger. Write down the number of inches (to the 1/8 of an inch). You’ll find the typical measurement will be between 4 ¼ (Grip Size 2) and 4 ⅜ (Grip Size 3).

For a full guide on how to do this with photos see our Ultimate Tennis Grips Buying Guide

3. What Style of Player you are?

The below are only generalisations;

Power Attacking – Usually suits a Thicker Grip

Speed, Spin, Control & Deception – Thinner Grip Size is preferred
