Wilson Junior Prime Tennis Racket
A racket’s head size refers to the total surface area of the string bed and is measured in square inches or centimeters. The larger the head size, the more power and forgiveness the racket gives the player. Smaller head sizes afford players more precision and control with every shot.
Generally speaking, professional players and advanced club players will stick to standard rackets (< 98 sq inches) because they can provide their own power and hit the sweet spot with consistency. Beginner players often start with oversized rackets (106+ sq inches) for extra forgiveness on off-center hits, while intermediate players frequently use midplus rackets (99-105 sq inches) that offer a nice blend of power and control.
