Junior Rackets 

If purchasing a tennis racket for a Junior player, the best option is a full graphite junior tennis racket as opposed to aluminium or composite ones which are  heavier and not so user friendly.  These come in sizes of 25”-27” in half inch increases.  They should not weigh more than 250 grams. 

Full graphite junior rackets are available for lending.
