Racket Head Size. Whether it be for control, balance, power or stability, the size of the head racket determines what the player is looking for. Most head sizes range from 85 to 135 square inches. Larger racket head appeals more to beginner up to intermediate players who are looking for power and stability. Large Head Size: 106 to 118 square inches.
Generally, the shorter the length, the easier it is to control and maneuver on court. However, a longer racquet provides greater power for shots such as topspin and serves. For beginners, a tennis racquet length of 27 inches or less is recommended. A junior who has been playing for about two years might use an adult size of 29-30 inches, while someone who has been playing for five or more years may choose from 31-32 inch models.
Smaller junior rackets tend to use a standard size of 3.875 inches, although the grips of the tiniest frames will probably be even smaller. 26-inch rackets typically have a 4 inch (size 0) grip, and once the step to a full-sized 27-inch racket is taken a 4.125 inch (size 1) grip is common.
If you are an advanced player or are reasonably strong or tall with a long swing then a smaller head size (Less than 96 sq. in.) might be right for you. for example, we’d suggest that most men between the ages of 17 and 60 who are over 6 feet tall and in good shape will probably only need a medium or smaller head size racket.
Most kids tennis rackets are offered in these length sizes: 19 inches. 21 inches. 23 inches. 25 inches. 26 inches. Adult rackets can range all the way up to 29 inches, which is the maximum size allowed for tournament play. The width of kids tennis rackets are all very similar.
Children over 11 inches tall must use a 19” or 21” racket, whereas younger children should utilize a 17” racket. A 23” racket is recommended for children between the heights of 3 feet 11 inches and 4 feet 4 inches.
