Three tips when buying a squash racket

Most models of squash rackets weigh anywhere between 115–170 grammes. Often the lighter models are also more expensive, as they are made from more exclusive materials. Rackets between 150–170 grammes are therefore generally the cheapest.

So what do the different weights mean for you?

  • A lighter racket gives you more flexibility, feel, and manoeuvrability, and is best suited for experienced players who do not need extra speed from the racket.
  • A heavier racket gives you more forgiving qualities, as the racket provides power, and is also more stable.
  • Head Heavy: The centre of gravity lies high up on the racket, which gives high pressure when hitting the ball. Head heavy rackets also provide good control, as you get a better feel for the racket's head. Suitable for fast-paced and offensive play.

  • Head Light: The weight is located down in the shaft. These rackets are easier to manoeuvre, which is suitable for beginners who need more forgiving and control-oriented qualities. These rackets are also good for more experienced players who are looking for maximum precision and manoeuvrability.

  • Even Balance: An intermediate between the two above, and a good all-round racket. Suitable for both offensive and control-oriented play. A good choice if you play with a large mix, or if you don't really know your playing style.

The racket's rigidity affects its target group. A more rigid racket is usually suitable for skilled players, both in terms of control and speed during the game. Just as weight plays a role in speed, so too does rigidity. Skilled players can generate speed on their own, and with a rigid racket they can achieve the stability and feel they desire.

A softer racket is easier to control, and is therefore more suitable for beginners and recreational squash players.
