As a racket sports brand we have plenty of advice to help you with your game.
A new grip will have a considerable impact on your game, that's why it's important to choose the right one for you. Your main selection criteria should be how it feels when you’re playing.
There are three different types of grips/overgrips, you'll find more details on them below. Though they do the same thing overall – provide more grip – each one has a slightly different property to enhance a different aspect of handling or playing.
Grips improve the hold between your fingers and the racket handle. It helps you get a firm grip on the racket in your hand, and also absorbs vibrations.
As well as ensuring you have a good hold on the racket, overgrips increase the size of your handle . Like we said before, overgrips have the same qualities as grips, however they usually go over a base grip and are much thinner.
We’re throwing something new into the mix here. Towelling grips. They have a rather different function to grips or overgrips as they are used to absorb sweat from your hands. Their main quality is absorption, which is why they’re made of cotton.
- Wind the grip around the handle, starting from the bottom.
- Let each turn of the grip overlap the one before by about 3mm and then cut off the excess just beneath the neck of the racket.
- To keep the grip in place, use finishing glue on the final turn of the grip.
