When To Replace Your Grip

Over time, as you play tennis, your base grip will wear down, become less effective, and need replacing. How often you play tennis, and your preference for maintaining the grip’s efficacy will dictate the frequency at which it needs replacement. For example, if you’re noticing that your racquet’s handle is becoming firm, it might be time to replace it. Similarly, if your grip is becoming slippery or difficult to control due to sweat, you might want to consider a replacement. Any grip will eventually start to fall apart with rips or tears that occur due to friction if you wait long enough. If you’ve reached this point, then you’ve waited too long, and it’s time to replace it!

Overgrips vs Replacements

The alternative option is to use overgrips, which wrap over the top. Most players use overgrips instead, which are thinner and don’t have a soft cushion. They rely on the original grip beneath them for a cushioning effect when wrapped over the top, and provide different features such as sweat absorption and tackiness. The great thing about overgrips is that they’re cheaper than replacement grips and you can change them regularly to keep your grip feeling new and comfortable. Some players prefer to use the original grip that comes with the racquet, but you need to use a replacement grip once they’re worn. These cost significantly more but do tend to last longer, provide cushioning and can also offer special features like finger ridges.
