Tennis is a very popular sport. It is practiced not only by professional athletes, but also by amateurs of all ages. To achieve certain results in this sport, it is important to choose the right tennis racket. Each racket has basic and additional characteristics. The main ones are weight, length, balance and string surface area.
A racket for a novice amateur player can not delve too deeply into the choice, but pay attention only to the main parameters. The optimal racket length for a beginner player is 69 centimeters. Racket weight no more than 275 grams. String surface area not less than 670 sq. cm. When choosing a racket, pay attention to the handle. It is important that you feel comfortable. The hand and fingers should not strain, the hand as a whole should be comfortable and comfortable.
Professional players approach the choice of racket more carefully. With the help of a properly selected racket, it is advantageous to use the advantages of your individual game. A racquet with a larger string surface area has less string tension, resulting in less ball control. Professionals tend to choose a racquet with a smaller footprint but tighter string tension. Racket strings are made from natural and synthetic materials.
Moreover, the last option is in no way inferior in quality to the first. Synthetic strings are more affordable and therefore more popular. Professional tennis players choose rackets over 300g. Heavy weight racquet strengthens the hand and increases the power of impact. The balance of the racket is chosen depending on the style of play. To play defense, they buy rackets with a balance in the handle, and for an attacking game, rackets with a balance in the head.
It is not necessary to choose an expensive tennis racket for a child. As long as there is no experience of playing and proven technique, the child will not feel the difference between rackets. Therefore, pay attention not to the price, but to the length and weight of the racket.
The child will not be able to play with a racket that is too long. It will be very difficult to hit the ball in the middle of the string surface. Currently, manufacturers offer a lot of options for short rackets. The weight of the racket should also be taken into account. In no case should playing tennis become a heavy physical load, first of all, the child should enjoy this sport. The weight of the racket should allow the child to freely rotate the brush.
