If you are looking for a new racquet here are some things to consider:
Plan to spend between $50.00 and $100.00 for a decent racquet. You won’t
outgrow it at this point in your play and development.
Grip size will vary but most females fall into size 4 1/4 or 4 3/8. You
don’t want your fingers to overlap on the grip.
Head size to consider – mid to oversize provides the largest sweet spot.
Weight – under 10 oz is suggested.
More strings means more control.
Head, Wilson, Prince and Babolat are all good brands.

Court shoes are recommended. They are designed for lateral movement unlike
a running shoe.
