The Ultimate Guide to Tennis Equipment

Tennis is a game that can be played by anyone. The equipment needed to play tennis, however, can be very expensive. The right gear will make all of the difference in your game and give you an edge on the competition! In this guide Fitose provides everything you need to know about how to choose from different types of tennis rackets, strings, sneakers and more so that you get the most out of your money.

Decide what type of court you want 

The first thing you have to decide is whether or not you want an indoor court, a clay court, hard surface tennis courts such as concrete and asphalt, grass courts or outdoor hardcourts. The type of turf will change the way your racket plays so this should be taken into consideration before buying one.

The most common type of court is grass because it feels more natural and allows for a bouncier ball. The downside, however, to playing on a lawn is that you have to be careful about slipping and sliding when the ground gets wet or damp.

Stringing options in rackets

The next important thing to consider is what kind of stringing options your racket has. The two main types are multifilament strings and traditional gut racquets with nylon (or synthetic) strings. Multifilaments are made from materials such as polyester or kevlar which offer better elasticity than normal tennis rackets but don’t provide as much power in return. Traditional guts give players the ability to hit powerful shots all over the court without having to worry about breaking their racket. The downside is that they are more likely to break than multifilament strings and the cost of replacing them will be a lot higher.

The type of court surface you play on can also change how your racket plays so it’s important to take this into consideration, especially if you’re playing with traditional nylon stringing and want to use your racket on other surfaces such as hard courts or clay. The best way for someone who wants to buy one tennis racquet that covers all types of ground would be an aluminum head with both polyester and gut strings in order to get maximum durability but still have some elasticity when needed.

Grip on your racquet

The next thing to take into consideration is the grip on your racquet. The best way to do this would be by feeling what it’s like when you shake someone else’s hand and then using that as a reference point for how strong or weak of a grip you should go with. The stronger your handshake, the stronger the grip should be on your tennis racket. A weaker one may need more padding around their palm in order to feel better at gripping without slipping.

Other factors

Of course, there are many other things that can affect how much power comes from each stroke such as height, weight and arm length but these factors will vary depending on who’s playing so they’re not all important at once time. What size shoe you wear is important because the size of your feet will affect how well you can move around on court. The length and thickness of your arm is also another key factor in determining which racket to buy as this will have an effect on whether or not it’s too heavy for you.

Know your level

The last thing that needs to be taken into consideration when buying a tennis racquet depends largely upon what level of player you are, but there are other factors such as sweatiness and grip preference (whether they like a dryer palm or want more moisture) that should all come into play here. The best way to find out what type of tennis equipment would work best for you is by visiting a local store that specializes in selling them so they can help guide you to what would be the best purchase for you. The store should also have a wide selection of different types and brands so you can see how each cut looks when it comes to playing on different ground types.
