How to choose your racquet?
Tennis racquets: how to choose the right equipment?
For a racquet to become a natural extension of your own arm, you must consider a thorough evaluation of a certain number of criteria to achieve optimal comfort and efficiency.
Whether you are a beginner just starting to learn tennis or an expert who are already familiar with tennis techniques, you will not choose the same type of equipment.
To make the right choice for your racquet, four criteria must be seriously considered :
Racquet’s weight : the more heavy the racquet, the more powerful your movement, but greater weight also makes the racquet less easy to handle.
Head size : the larger the head size, the more strength in your gesture, but you lose precision with a larger head size.
Grip size : once you put your hand around the grip, there should be a space of about one centimeter between the thumb and the middle finger.
Racquet’s balance : if you are looking for power, you will tend to choose a racquet that is more heavily balanced towards the head. If you look for precision and an easier handling of the racquet, you will opt for a handle-side balance.

Ventilation : It is essential to your foot’s health. An efficient expelling of perspiration is central to your comfort in an intense activity.
Dampening : By balancing shock waves along the sole of the foot, a good dampener provides optimal comfort on the court as well as a reduction of the risks of sports-related ailments.
Stability : Shoes that feature good support (through a lateral support system for example) lower the risks of ankle injuries (sprained ankles)
Resistance : It is a real investment to buy a pair of tennis shoes! If you choose resistant components, you ensure long-lasting efficiency for your shoes.
Dynamism : By allowing the restitution of the energy produced by the impact on the ground, your tennis shoes can improve your performance during break-ins.
Select the tennis shoes that are best adapted to your playing style and the types of courts you are used to. Nike, asics, Adidas, Babolat, Wilson... brands you can trust, as worn by your favorite champions.

Tennis grip or overgrip ?
An essential component of the tennis player’s equipment, the grip must be placed on a clean handle, free of old grip.

The overgrip is not essential but it can increase grip size slightly and make it easier for you to grab your racquet’s handle. Rubber-like or velvet-like touch? It is up to you to choose your overgrip according to the sensations you expect...
