Grip Sizes

There are two general ways to determine your proper grip size.
  • Physical Fit: Hold the paddle by the handle as you would while playing. Insert your non-dominant index finger in the space between your palm and the tip of your ring finger. If your index finger is snug, then the grip is sized correctly. If you need to move the tip of your ring finger to accommodate the inserted finger, then you need a larger grip. If it is not snug, or there is space, then you need a smaller grip.
  • Ring Finger Measurement: A player can measure his or her grip size with a ruler. Your palm has three creases. Measure the distance from the tip of your ring finger, down to the middle crease in your palm as shown in the photo.
  • Between Sizes: If you are between grip sizes, then go with a smaller grip. Reducing the size of a handle is not an option. However, you can always increase the size of a handle by using a different grip, or an overgrip. An overgrip is approximately .023" thick (about .6 mm). An inexpensive overgrip is used to preserve your original grip, keep your paddle from slipping in your hand, and/or thicken a handle that is a little too small.
    • Small 4 1/8"
    • Medium 4 1/4"
    • Large 4 1/2"

Gripping Performance

  • Re-gripping: How often should a paddle grip be replaced? A grip needs to be replaced anytime it shows wear or loses tackiness. Remove the old grip and inspect the handle for any damage. If no damage is present, place the new grip on the paddle starting at the end cap. Keep the grip taut while overlapping the revolutions and working towards the head of the paddle. Trim the grip if it is too long, and apply the finishing tape.
