President’s Statement Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Most manufacturers now make a variety of junior rackets and some even provide height charts as an easy reference for parents to use when selecting a racket for their child. Without guidance, parents see the size of the racket and size of the court that a child plays on as the measure of progress, so they want to move their child to a bigger racket.

Many rackets now have a label listing the recommended age or height of the child; some manufacturers are now even colour coding their rackets using the Red, Orange and Green system to help parents. As a rough guide, when a child stands upright holding the racket directly downwards, the end of the frame should be around 3cms from the ground. If the racket touches the ground, it is too big. When choosing a frame, you should consider how this bigger frame influences the child’s ability to: • control the racket face at impact • control the racket shape through the backswing and follow through • generate racket head speed to create spin and better control • use the segments of their body to create a smooth and fluent motion

14

A child playing with a racket that is too long for them may: • enjoy tennis less as they struggle to control the ball • develop a reactive rather than proactive playing style • possibly sustain an injury due to the stress placed upon developing limbs


As a simple rule, if you have a choice between a bigger and smaller racket, choose the smaller one until you are very conďŹ dent that the player is ready for the larger racket and that none of the above problems will occur. Finally, make sure that the grip size is small enough for a child to hold comfortably. Grips that are too big or too small can cause the child to grip too tightly, leading to injury or problems in creating a uent stroke production.
