Manufactured tennis racquet grip sizes range from less than 4″ for juniors to 4 7/8″ for the largest adult hands. This might not seem like much of a range, but the difference even 1/8″ makes is surprising

The most commonly used method for finding your grip size is by using the following steps:
• On your dominant hand, note that your palm has three main creases.
• Hold your hand flat, with the fingers alongside one another.
• Measure from the middle crease of your palm, up the line between your middle and ring fingers, to a point equal to the height of the tip of your ring finger.

if you’re between an eighth of an inch when you measure and you’re not growing, you’ll be better off going with the smaller grip, as a slightly small grip can be fattened up easily with an overwrap, One thing to keep in mind is that overwraps can’t fatten a grip effectively more than 1/8 of an inch without rounding off of the bevel edges on your handle.

Grip sizes between 4 1/8″ and 4 5/8″ are easy to find in adult racquets. Larger and smaller grips are made for some racquets, but not all. Players with unusually small or large hands often have their racquet handles custom-sized at a pro shop, you May also be able to get a do-it-yourself grip enlargement kit.
