Tennis Grips & Tennis Overgrips
The right tennis grips are just as important as the right racket. In fact, if you try to use your racket with several types of tennis grips and tennis overgrips, you'll notice some considerable differences, which can alter your style completely.
Some players swear by a brand or another, others prefer the leather tennis grips, and there are also some who do not use tennis overgrips at all, they just replace the original one whenever needed.
Get the Right Tennis Grips
Since we understand the importance of finding the right one to suit your unique style, we carry a huge selection of both replacement tennis grips and tennis overgrips, from major producers such as Wilson, Head, Babolat, Tecnifibre, Yonex, Tourna, RAB, Karakal, Black Knight, and Dunlop.
When you're an avid player, you have to replace the tennis grips every couple of weeks or so. They will wear out and lose tackiness is you fail to do so – increasing the risk of having the racket slip off your hand.
In addition, old and dirty tennis grips are a source of germs, so it's best to stay safe. (If you've taken your rackets to be restrung and the specialist gave you an awkward look, it could be because he was rather reluctant to touch the sticky and dirty tennis grips on your rackets, which should have been replaced a long time ago.)
One good way to remember that your tennis grips need replacement is to purchase them in white, as they'll get dirty quicker, and it will be easier to see when it's time to get new ones. For those who do not need a visual reminder, we also supply tennis grips in black, for a slicker and more fashionable look.
When to Replace Your Tennis Overgrips
If you play daily and you need replacements often, we offer great purchase value with our two packs of tennis grips, or even boxes of 24 pieces – so that you're never short of a new one when you need it most.
The decision whether to purchase replacement grips or tennis overgrips is not an easy one, and comes with experience. Most players prefer the overgrips because they add more cushioning, and they're also easier to replace.
If you're satisfied with your current tennis grips and you don't want to increase their diameter, you should purchase the thin ones, of 0.50 mm or smaller, which do not alter the original size too much. In general, most tennis overgrips will increase the grip by about half a size.
If your hands get sweaty, or if you play in a warm and damp environment, tennis grips that absorb moisture are essential not just to improve your game, but also to prevent injuries. Changing the old tennis grips is quite simple, and, with a bit of practice, it takes just a few minutes. Test your rackets after that, in order to make sure that the tennis grips are tight enough, and they do not move during play.
Overall, good, comfortable tennis grips are essential for any player, and they're a small investment that can drastically improve your game. We are confident that you'll find exactly what you're looking for by browsing our wide selection.
