Sorry for yet another beginners thread, but the existing ones I've read haven't answered my questions. From some helpful looking racket articles online, and from reading threads on here, I've figured out that I probably need a head-light, lightweight, flexible shafted racket, with a small grip.I'm female, 4' 10", in my mid 40s, fairly fit but not very strong yet, with small hands. And tennis elbow. Translating that into an actual racket is incredibly confusing, especially as I've just learned that junior rackets are available. Would a junior racket be more appropriate for someone of my size? Should I be getting a racket with a longer handle to make up for my lack of reach, or a shorter one? In terms of play, I'm only a beginner, but have reached the stage where I'm no longer shocked when I manage to return an awkward shot, and really I'm enjoying it so much, it's time to buy a proper racket. The one I have is a 15 year old one that a friend passed on for me to use, it's rather too heavy for me, and it's very slightly warped. Any advice or suggestions regarding suitable rackets or helpful articles about this would be gratefully received!
