Junior Tennis - A Size Guide
Racket Restringing

Junior Tennis

Finding the right junior racket mainly depends on the height of the child. Please, find below an overview of what size racket you will require for your child. It is slightly more reliable than just going on the age of your child, as there can be quite a height difference between children of the same age. If you have any queries, please, phone us on 01225 466341.
