A tennis racquets are always just an extension of your arm. The process involved in choosing a tennis racquet depends on your player skill level. Beginner tennis players might look for a better all around racquet that can help them develop their stroke.

The following are the best tennis racquet recommendations from 2018, with a focus on the 3 player levels; beginners, intermediate and advanced tennis players.

The most important things to look at when choosing a suitable tennis racquet, are: the head size, the racquet weight, the racquet length, the balance of the racquet and the stiffness of the racquet. Last but not least, it is extremely important to choose the correct grip size as you want to get the right feel when hitting the tennis ball.

 

Tennis racquets vary so much. Some players prefer the weightier racquet to give them that added power to blow opponents off the court, while some prefer a lighter, more controlled racquet, to guide shots past the opponent standing on the other side of the net.

Not all tennis players will like all racquets, and most will prefer one to another, depending on their ability and the respective strengths and weaknesses on the court. That is why testing is key, as one player’s wand is another player’s stick.

Price ranges also vary so it is important to consider your price bracket, regardless of brand, getting the correct weight and balance is a lot more important than the name on the base of the handle.
