If you need help finding a racquet, then you've come to the right place! We have all the tools and resources you'll need to not only find the perfect racquet for your game, but to also educate yourself on subjects ranging from technologies and customization to how to measure your grip size, strings and much, much more. We've put together a comprehensive and easy-to-use Racquet Selector program that can help guide you through the vast selection of racquet brands and models. Our hope is that with all these tools at your disposal, you will be able to make an educated and informed decision on the best possible racquet for you.
Before we get started, do you know your playing level or NTRP rating? The United States Tennis Association uses a number system to rate the playing level of tennis players. We reference this rating system in our racquet descriptions as well as in this Racquet Selector.
BEGINNER (NTRP 1.0 - 2.5)
If you're a beginner just starting out, you'll want a racquet that helps you return the ball with some power. Because you're developing technique and strokes, a racquet with a larger headsize will be forgiving when you don't hit the ball in the sweetspot.
INTERMEDIATE (NTRP 3.0 - 4.5)
If you're an intermediate player, you will be able to rally with moderate power and consistency, and you now have a good all-around game. You'll want racquets that can provide some additional power to your own without sacrificing control. You have experience playing matches and have developed the ability to put together points. You'll want a racquet that'll magnify the part of your game that is your weapon, whether it be a big forehand or serve.
ADVANCED (NTRP 4.5 - 7.0)
If you're an advanced player, you have a fully developed game and extensive experience playing competitive matches. Because you can consistently hit the ball hard when you want to or ease up on the power for touch, you'll be looking for racquets that build upon your strengths.
