We have provided below a general guide for the size of racket each age group should be suited to.If your child is tall or more advanced player for their age the size which you choose should be adjusted upwards.
Adult Rackets are sized by the thickness of the grip rather than the length of the racket.
Measuring Up for Tennis Racket Grip Size: With your playing hand, open your palm and extend your fingers keeping them together as shown in diagram 1.1 below. Then take a ruler and align the edge with your third (ring) finger (A in Image) and the bottom of the ruler in line with the joint where your thumb meets your hand, so that 0" on the ruler is in line with the dotted line shown below (B in Image).
Your grip size is then determined by the measurement between point A and the line of point B.
The 'hand measurement' show below correspond with the detailed grip sizes i.e. if your hand measurement is 4 3/8" (110 to 113 mm) then you should select a Grip Size 3 racket.
Childrens bikes are traditionally measured by wheel size in inches. The sizes are a guide as to what wheel size would be suitable for a particular age group.
N.B. All BMX bikes come with a 20" wheel and a frame size from 10" to 12" (frames do vary depending on the manufacturer). BMX bikes are suitable for ages from 8 years to mid teens.
Adult bikes are measured by the size of the frame (measured in inches from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat tube). The sizes below are a guide as to which frame size would be suitable for the riders height.
Road bikes are also measured by the frame size as above but the size is listed in centimeters rather than inches.
