You can call it a racket or racquet…it really doesn’t matter. What does matter is performance, cost and what level of play you are at.
There is beginner, intermediate and advanced and those are the sections I’m going to break those down for you so we can find the best tennis racket.
There are several different brands to choose from and you’ll find a mix of those down below. The most popular are Wilson, Head, Prince and Volkl to name a few.
There are a couple of things to consider when really narrowing down your choices.
- What level of player are you? Are you a beginner or advanced player? This is super important to consider because you don’t want too much racket if you’re just a casual player.
- What is your age? Are you a teenager or child? Are you in the 16-60 age range or are you older?
- Do you have a price range? This somewhat depends on your age group and skill level but are you looking at something under $100 or higher?
- Will you mostly be playing singles games or doubles games? Believe it or not this truly is a factor.
- Lastly I would say design and colors is a final factor.
What I listed above are major factors. Within those main factors are things such as grip size, head size, weight and materials, length and string tension just to name a few.
Let’s get started and find the best racket for you!
Beginner Level of Play
If beginner is your level of play there are typically three age brackets.
Under 14, 14-60 and 60 plus. After that you need to decide what price range you want.
I would choose something under $100 or something in-between $100 and $150 for the younger one’s and up to or over $200 for older players.
Here are a few choices for you to consider.
If you are interested click on a picture or two to get a better look at the racket and what it offers.
It’s also a great idea to read some of the customer reviews. Many times after reading three or four testimonials you’ll be able to come to a decision as to whether or not you want it.

I’ve always enjoyed the Prince brand of tennis equipment.

Have you ever used Prince products?
Intermediate Level of Play
All of the age brackets and price ranges are similar to the beginner one’s except this is the competition level where you pay a little more attention to things like power, comfort, control and a forgiving racket which just means the more you have of it the larger the sweet spot is.
All the major brands are represented here including a Volkl racket which is made with German engineering and current player Stefanie Voegele uses them.
I really like the first one pictured below. It’s the Wilson ’13 Steam 23 and super cheap!

Best Tennis Racket For Advanced Level of Play
Okay, this is the advanced group where you can expect a bit more customization but not have to spend a ton of money to get what you want.
The junior rackets are quite affordable. I have one listed below.
You can also expect to find one like the Wilson Six.One 95 which is often used on professional tour. It’s got a lot of pop and the strings will last you a long time.
Another great one to consider is the Volkl PowerBridge 10 Mid. It’s part of their upper tier of rackets and offers the most control.
