Kid’s tennis racquet sizing assistance:
Children’s racquets (19”, 21”, 23” frames) and Junior racquets (25”, 26” frames) are typically for players under 5 feet in height. They are designed with smaller grips that will better fit the hand of a younger player and they range in quality and performance from beginner style racquets to high performance graphite frames that are simply a shorter version of the same adult frame. The better the quality of the racquet, the easier it will be for your Junior player to transition to a graphite adult frame when the time comes. While height is the best criteria to determine the proper racquet size for a junior or child player, we have provided general age guidelines as well in the event that the player’s height is not known.
Lastly, in deciding between a 25” and 26” frame, we recommend the following guidelines: For the more serious Junior player, or a Junior closer to 5′ in height, we recommend a 26” frame. For the beginning Junior player or a Junior closer to 4’6” in height, a 25” frame should suffice.
The following chart provides a reference for sizing:
|Frame Size||Height of Player||Age of Player|
|25” or 26”||4′ 6” – 5′||9-12 years|
|23”||4′ – 4′ 5”||6-8 years|
|21”||3′ – 3’11”||4-5 years|
|19”||Up to 3′||2-3 years|
