5. Choosing the Right Grip Size:

    1. Open your dominant hand and extend your fingers.
    2. Using a ruler, measure the distance from the middle of your palm to the tip of your ring finger.
    3. Typically, measurements between 4 to 4 3/8 inches suit most adults.
  • Method 2: On-Racket Test:

    1. Hold the racket as you would for a backhand.
    2. There should be a finger's width of space between your fingers and the base of your thumb.
