Hi all,

Looking to start my daughter in the world of tennis and wondering which racquet to start for her.

I play with Babolats and I think it is not recommended for her...yet.

Maybe Prince or Wilson or Head? Don't want to break the bank, so these discontinued racquets will probably work best.

K-factor six-one! lol jk
Any racket will do, a cheap one is prefered, she's gonna scratch the hcek out of it.

I would consider the Wilson ProStaff 6.0 original mid or the Prince Graphite Classic (Original) mid. good begginer racquets.

i'd suggest a 25 or 26 inch junior racquet i think TW sells a bunch of different one


or just head down to your local Walmart and pick her out a shiny one lol

depending on how tall she is go for a 25" or 26" racquet - my son is 7.5yrs old, 126cm tall and plays a wilson pro staff 25". a decent graphite junior frame should be around usd 40 - it's well spent money. don't get any metal frames, feels really bad when hitting the frame and this will happen quite often. hope she likes the game and has fun.

do it the old fashion way, the good'ol woodies. wilson advantage is a very light wood racquet.

but yea, any new jr. racquet will do if you wanna go the modern route.

I think Head's junior radical is $48, their junior prestige is $44
Or the Head Ti Agassi is 25" and is $25
Its a good bargain.

IT WAS IN!!!
