First, pick your playing level

Before we go into detail, do you know the classifications according to performance classes? There are different systems for classifying tennis players according to their level of performance. The performance classes have existed in Germany for some time. We have used the performance classes as a reference in our recommendations.

Beginners (LK 28 to 33 or still without LK)
Once you've just started playing tennis, you will likely need a racket that will help you get the ball back with some power. And since you need to hone your technique and your strokes at the beginning, a club with a larger, more forgiving face will help if you don't hit the ball optimally.

Hobby media player (LK 27 - 12)
Players in this category can play rallies with good power and good consistency. You usually have a solid, reliable all-round game. These players often play up to a lot, successfully take part in point games and club championships. Rackets that offer a little extra power, but without compromising too much on control, are ideal here. Rackets that support your own strengths, be it a great forehand or a huge serve, and ideally also offer good playing comfort are also well suited here.

Media player - tournament player (LK 11 - LK 1)
Experienced players at this level have a technically sophisticated game and hit the ball optimally in almost every situation. You have a lot of competition experience and you set the pace yourself. For these players, excellent feedback and control in club selection is important.
