1. No such thing as female racquets. I think what you mean is a lighter racquet, bigger head size racquet, headlight racquet... It'll be a more specific criteria. If you're not sure what these mean, here's some advice:
- get as heavy as you can swing.
- headlight is more maneuverable. However, head heavy helps you generate more power if you don't have your own.
- big head size gives more power but also more twisting possibilities.

Strings play an important role as well.

2. Go to tennis Malaysia Facebook page. Many selling preloved racquets which fall into your budget. If you're not sure what the specifications of the racquets are, just Google the name. Remember to check for Asian spec and not us specs.

3. Visit topper sports in ampang Park. Plenty of racquets to choose from and even second hand ones. Pertama complex also has a good shop called racquet world. Cheap and 2nd hand racquets also available. The other shop is ultimate sports which is opposite ampang point and de palma hotel. Good places to shop for racquets.

Hi guys.. I'm just starting in tennis after I got a taste of the game last year.

So I bought my first racquet, a Wilson Frontenis Classic. I chose it over Wilson Energy XL since the two is of the same price and the shop owner said Frontenis is more expensive. But I ultimately pick it because it has a better grip and heavier. I don't know anything about tennis racquets but I played badminton and favoured heavier racquets.

My question is, is it true that it is more expensive than the Energy XL and is my choice suitable for a beginner? I checked online but apparently it is a very old model and out of stock so no price. Also not much info on it too.. Really appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.

Normally lighter racket are more suitable for beginners as it will be easier to swing and this makes the learning process easier . If you can handle the weight and swing freely then it is ok. Also head size also for beginner normally is bigger so it is easier to hit . Just enjoy the process of learning the game and apply proper technique to be able to improve . smile.gif

Thanks for the reply. I went back and exchange the racquet to Energy XL because when I searched Frontenis, it says it is a different kind of sport from tennis but use a similar or equal racquet to tennis. Just to be safe, since I don't want any variation to actual tennis racquets. About the headsize, I was looking for size 100 but the one that I got is 112. So I should hit better I guess laugh.gif

Thanks for the tip, I'm looking forward to enjoying tennis and improve myself. biggrin.gif

Hi Wisithir ,

I would recommend you join Tennis Malaysia FB group. there is alot of people selling 2nd hand rackets and mostly in good condition . you can get them half the price from retail . Besides that if you want new , i would recommend topper sports as they have old models going on discount normally around 300-400 .

Hi there,

I just started tennis and currently taking lessons from a coach. I'm looking for a racquet to buy but I'm drowning in all the options available. My coach tells me to buy nice don't buy twice but the 'nice' are prett expensive. I'm not looking to go pro and taking up tennis is just for recreational purposes. Would it be advisable to spend on an expensive one? Would a cheap one affect my learning? Would also be great if I can get some recommendation on which racquet to consider buying. Thanks!

Hellooo any tennis fans still around?

Gutted by Federer's loss to DelPo in the US Open quarters today. Looks like there might never be a Fedal match at Flushing Meadows.

But winning Aus Open and Wimby ain't too shabby for a 36 y.o right. Can't say it wasn't a magical year. Who would've expected? rclxms.gif

Nadal looks locked in to finish as year end No.1

Fantastic year for both legends it's been.

I was taken by surprise when buying an ankle guard at a sports shop as the attendant mentioned wearing it on bare ankle UNDER the socks. Well I always wear mine OVER my socks...Would love to hear comments from you guys.🤔😁
