    Default Do women's rackets have shorter handles?

    One of the girls that plays in our club is more comfortable using a shorter grip on her racket but as a result she is getting bruises on her wrist. She's a beginner and is using a cheap off the shelf Carlton racket.

    I've seen some women's rackets which are more suitable to their game, but do they have shorter handles?

    Any tips would be appreciated.

    I don't think I've seen any racket with a shorter handle but you can shorten it a little by yourself. Take off the grip and the butt cap and then you can see how much you can take off of the handle.

    There are some which are designed for women like the Yonex Arcsaber 9FL or some Li-Ning rackets. The main difference to a "male" racket would be the paint job I guess. Those "female" rackets are pink most of the time.

    Shorter handles? No, but some decidedly girly rackets have thinner handles (Arc 9 and its sisters come in G6, for example).

    IMO, all Victor rackets should! I'd use a G1 (aka YY G6) if I could.
