    The most critical factor when buying a tennis racket is weight. A racket that is too heavy can incur arm, shoulder or wrist discomfort and will slow down your stroke. Conversely, a racket that is too light sacrifices power and can throw off your timing. Most adult strung rackets fall between 9 and 12 oz.

     Lighter Rackets (9-10 oz)Heavier Rackets (11-12 oz)
    ProsMore maneuverable, easier to
    swing and generate spin
    More powerful, more stable and
    helps maintain control
    ConsLess powerful, less stableHigher injury risk and less
    maneuverable
    Best ForPlayers with slower, more compact strokes –
    typically smaller players, juniors or
    anyone with arm discomfort
    Aggressive players with long, fast
    strokes – typically bigger players
    in or near their prime

    A racket’s head size, which is measured in square inches, will have a direct effect on racket performance. As racket head size increases, power and forgiveness also increase. For players who hit the sweet spot consistently, a smaller head size will afford more precision and control. Larger head sizes are classified as oversize (typically 106+ square inches). Any rackets smaller than that qualify as midsize.

     Midsize (< 106 sq in) Oversize (>106 sq in) 
    ProsMore precision, easier to
    quickly maneuver 
    More powerful, higher margin
    for error 
    ConsLess powerful, smaller margin
    for error 
    Less precision, more difficult to
    maneuver 
    Best ForMore experienced players
    who hit the sweet spot
    consistently 
    Beginners or intermediate
    players who prefer larger sweet
    spot 

    Another subtle factor for racket performance is its balance, which defines the weight distribution. Rackets can either be head-light, head-heavy or even-balanced. Head-light rackets have more weight concentrated toward the handle, whereas head-heavy rackets feature more weight concentrated toward the head. Even-balanced rackets strike a happy medium between the two. Balance is indicated on a point scale, with the larger negative numbers being more head-light and the larger positive numbers being more head-heavy. Smaller numbers close to 0 indicate more evenly balanced rackets.

     Head-Light (- pts) Head-Heavy (+ pts) 
    ProsReduced vibrations in the
    handle, easier to maneuver 
    More powerful, more stable
    through swing
    ConsLess powerful, more maneuverableMore difficult to maneuver
    Best ForPlayers who use heavier rackets
    and want to swing faster with
    more maneuverability 
    Players who use lighter rackets
    and want more stability to keep
    racket head from twisting 

    *Note: Strung rackets will be more head-heavy than unstrung rackets, so be sure to check whether the racket specs are strung or unstrung for accuracy.
