Racquet Balance

There is a point along the length of a tennis racquet where it can be balanced on your finger or the edge of a table. This is called the Balance Point of the racquet.

The distance of this point is measured from the base of the handle. The Balance point is then compared to the midpoint of the racquet.

Example: A standard length racquet is 686 mm or 27 inches. An evenly balanced racquet would have a Balance Point of 343 mm or 13.5 inches.

Some racquets are evenly balanced as described in the example. Others are known as either Head-Heavy or Head-Light.
