HEAD Tennis Racquets

Tennis is a great way to get outside, stay active, and lose to your friend who always beats you at everything. You know the one: Whether it's sports, trivia, or just general life skills, he or she always makes you look like a pathetic waste of space in comparison.

Could someone please explain the sizing of these? I can't find any online explanation of Size 3, Size 2, etc.

The sizing is in reference to grip diameter, with 1 being the smallest. The grip sizes referenced under the Specs tab are what you should be looking at if you want to know the measurements in inches.

Interesting, owned plenty of racquets and never saw handle size presented this way before. For those not familiar with the normal sizing of the handle, an average grip is roughly 4 3/8" (size 3) or 4 1/2" (Size 4) for men, 4 1/4 (Size 2) to 4 3/8" (Size 3) for women. A larger man's hand would take 4 5/8" (Size 5) while a smaller women's hand or older child would be 4 1/8 (Size 1) or less. Too large a grip can give slightly more control but puts more stress on the wrist and elbow leading to injury. Additional wrapping can add up to an 1/8".

I'll also mention that of the common racquet manufacturers, I prefer Head first, Prince second and Wilson third. Others may disagree but that's only because they're ignorant fools.
