You are on the right website to buy your junior tennis racket, why? - because we have a wide range of the main brands and for all ages.
We have been in the world of tennis for more than 30 years, on and off the courts, and our team is ready to give you all the information you need and answer all your questions. The purchase of a children's tennis racket is often a purchase that is not given the importance it has, we assume that it is due to the fact that they are "children", the price is small compared to adult ones and often we think that anyone is good to "tap the ball".
Well, we want to help you take care of your little players, although from the outside it seems that they don't do anything relevant, the training or the games they play are complete training sessions for their age and structure. Their bones, muscles and tendons are in the growth phase and they have memory, that is why there are certain factors to take into account when buying a junior tennis racket, and the main one is that it is the right size.
How do I know which junior racket to buy?
When in doubt, we always recommend that you consult with professionals, you can do so with us or with the coach of the school where you play or are going to play.
Within the junior tennis rackets there is a size for each age-height, the sizes that you can see in the rackets are 17,21,23,24,25 and 26, these numbers really indicate the length of the racket in inches being 17 the shortest and 26 the longest before becoming an adult. Normally when someone asks us about which racket they need, we usually ask two questions:
• How old is the child?
• How tall is he?
The websites parameterize the rackets by age group and height, but height always prevails over age, since the appropriate racket has to measure what the child's height needs.
This is important since the weight of the racket also varies with length, a longer than necessary racket weighs more than it should handle and a shorter than appropriate racket is very light. Both circumstances can physically affect the child and her learning, that is why we always recommend that when in doubt you consult, because we will be happy to help you.
What material should the racket be?
These are the materials you will find:
• Size 17 to 24. They are made of aluminum so that the weight and ductility of the racket is at the appropriate for their age.
• Size 25 and 26. We will find two options, graphite or fusion (graphite + aluminum)
Since the doubt appears in the sizes 25 and 26, we will explain it easily.
• Fusion. Recommended for more casual non-competitive players. It allows them to continue learning without problems and already conveniently protects the child's arm. They are cheaper.
• Graphite. It is recommended for everyone, but certainly for those who compete and/or have a lot of hitting power . Graphite is already the material used in adult rackets in medium and high ranges. The result is rackets that are much more stable, resistant and effective, they take much better care of the joints. Its price is higher as it also has more technologies that, together with the graphite, will take care of the player's health.
You already have the racket, now put on some good shoes, that health begins with the feet.
