Learn the Fundamentals
This beginner tennis racquet provides students with the same shape and feel as a traditional model, with the caveat of being an average of 2 inches shorter and 2 ounces lighter. This slight compromise on size and weight allows younger students—primarily ages 8-12—to get a feel for holding and swinging a racquet as they learn the mechanics of tennis. Players who might not yet have the arm strength and power to volley and serve will be complemented by the ease of swinging and the moderate reach of the racquet.
When a connection is made, a midsized head and abounding 95 in2 surface area will send shots powerfully back over the net with minimal effort on the part of the player. Nylon strings promote playability on every shot and, when connecting with the sweet spot or best bounce area, will channel inertia on the return. 23 mm head beams also create a trampoline effect that improves string reverberation for more “give” on shots that may be slightly off target.
Lightweight and Swift
The entire aluminum frame weighs just 10 oz, which is easy for younger, smaller students to swing freely without throwing themselves off balance or swinging wildly. In addition to stability, the lightweight design also improves swiftness and accuracy, allowing students to make more accurate connections with a fraction of the power needed on titanium racquets or longer models.
As students become more acclimated with the feel of the racquet in their hands, the pace of a tennis match, and the rules, they’ll be more apt to upgrading their abilities via heavier racquets and larger head sizes. This beginner tennis racquet provides younger players with a natural segue into more advanced techniques and more intimidating racquets by building the confidence they require early on.Which tennis racquet is right for me?
