Tennis Gear Tips: Choosing the Right Racquet – Type

tennis racquet

With so many different racquets on the market, it can often be overwhelming for tennis players to choose which racquet will suit their game the best. 

With many different things to consider, one of the most important things players should know is the three main types of racquets and how to determine which type is the best fit for each individual’s game..

Power racquets

Characteristics:

- lighter - larger head size - open string pattern -

This type of racquet can provide generous amounts of power for a player who does not use a fast or full length swing. Because of the larger sweet spot, a power racquet can be a perfect racquet for someone with smaller and more relaxed sings to provide the needed power that their natural swing lacks.

Tweener Racquets

Characteristics 

- medium weight - medium head size- string pattern varies - medium frame width - 

A tweener racquet is great for players who are looking for a blend of power and control from their racquets.  These racquets are made for players who have medium to long swing speeds and take medium to long cuts at the ball.  This kind of racquet is especially ideal for players who are making the transition from junior to full length racquets.

Control Racquets

Characteristics 

- heavier weight - smaller head size - string pattern vaaries - thinner frame width

The control racquet is designed for the players who have long and fast swings at the ball.  Since the racquet itself provides little power, much of the pace must be generated from the player.  The benefit of using such a heavy racquet lies in the stability and control that is provided.  This racquet is not the best for transitioning juniors unless they can handle the weight.
