Tennis Grips

Replacement grip and over grips

There are two kinds of grips for a tennis racket. The over grip and the replacement (or standard grip) of a tennis racket.

Over grips

  • An over grip has to be placed over the existing replacement grip of your tennis racket.
  • The over grip provides extra absorption and heightens the moisture intake, which of course improves the playing comfort.
  • Never use an over grip directly on the frame. Vibrations will not be absorbed sufficiently, which increases the risk of injuries.
  • All over grips come in packs of three, unless stated otherwise.

  • The replacement grip is the standard grip which is already on the tennis racket when you buy it.
  • The replacement grip absorbs a large part of the shocks and plays an instrumental part in the eventual playing comfort of your tennis racket.
  • More and more tennis players are discovering the importance of a good replacement grip.

How to replace an over grip of a tennis racket?

If applicable, remove the old over grip first. Then remove the foil of the new over grip. Carefully tape the thin ending against the side of the widest area of the ending butt of your tennis racket. While you keep a hold of the over grip, turn around the racket so you will end up with an overlap at the starting point. Right handed players turn their grip to the right, left handed players turn to the left.

  1. Now keep turning and the grip will roll upwards by itself. Make sure the overlap is no more than 2 or 3 mm.
  2. When you reach the tape of the replacement grip, cut of the remaining part of the over grip at an angle.
  3. Turn the last piece further around the handle and tie up the ending with the enclosed tape. The tape is elastic and allows itself to be tightly wrapped over the replacement grip and around the handle.

 

How to replace a replacement grip of a tennis racket?

 

  1. Remove the old replacement grip from your tennis racket and as much of the remaining left over glue as possible.
  2. Remove the tape strip from the new replacement grip you are about to use. Carefully tape the thin ending against the side of the widest area of the ending butt of your tennis racket. Turn around the racket and follow the outer edge of the ending butt with the grip. At the overlap with the starting point, you pull the grip slightly upwards, so the upward spiral is initialised. Right handed players turn their grip to the right, left handed players turn to the left.
  3. Now keep turning and the grip will roll upwards by itself. Make sure the thinner finished sides of the replacement grip only overlap by 2 or 3 mm.
  4. When the whole grip is neatly covered, cut of the remaining part of the grip at an angle.
  5. Turn the last piece further around the handle and tie up the ending with the enclosed tape. The tape is elastic and allows itself to be tightly wrapped over the replacement grip and around the handle.
