Whether you’re playing tennis for the first time or play competitively, we’ve got the right tennis racket for every kind of tennis player.

The Science Behind Finding the Perfect Tennis Racket

When it comes to choosing the right racket for you and your playing style, there are three specs you want to focus on: weight, headsize and stiffness.

How does weight impact your racket?

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)
Pros More maneuverable, easier to
swing and generate spin
More powerful, more stable and
helps maintain control
Cons Less powerful, less stable Higher injury risk and less
Best For Players 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


If you are new to the sport of tennis and looking for the right racket to start with, then look no further. You’ll want a lighter racket with a larger headsize, one that generates a good amount of power, and one with a generous sweet spot. Check out the rackets below:
