Choosing Grip Size

The best ways  to determine grip size:



  • The easiest way is to grab a tennis racket handle and place your index finger from your opposite hand in the space between your fingers and your palm. If your index finger fits comfortably, the grip is just right. If your finger will not fit, the grip is too small.


  • The proper size can be determined by measuring the distance between the tip of the ring finger and the first palm crease (life line).   For example:  The distance between your first palm line and the tip of your ring finger is 11.5 cm .1 inch = 2.54 cm11.5 cm = 4.53 inch = 4 and 1/2 inch.Your grip size - 4 1/2 (US system) or 4 (European system).


  • A general rule of thumb is to choose the largest grip you feel comfortable with, but again there are exceptions to every rule.
