If you hold a grip and it feels too big or too small, it probably is. Grips are available in 4 even, 4-1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, and 5/8. Junior 26" racquets come in 4; 25" in 3-7/8. Grips are sometimes in G sizes. G1 is 4-1/8, G2 is 4-1/4 , etc. A little number (like 3) on the butt cap means this is a G3 or 4-3/8 grip.

For example on my N55 (G2) I have a layer of electrical tape followed by an elite grip - no overlap - just to build up and then another grap that has lost its tackiness and is worn out to build up further with no overlap then I use the soft75 with around 30-505% overlap. This gives me a slightly ribbed grip and its nice and cushiony.
History of Tennis Grips. In the early days of the sport, the continental grip dominated. Wooden racquets strung with natural gut strings were the norm, and up until 1974, three of the world’s biggest tournaments were played on grass, including Wimbledon, the Australian Open, and the US Open.
How do I choose a tennis racket grip size? The grip size is the circumference of the handle of the racket, and the size you need will therefore depend on the size of your hand.
