The business side of tennis is as highly competitive as the sport itself. The constant pressure of new products from new manufacturers and established companies makes for a dynamic and creative industry. The folks at Gamma are keenly aware of this in the grip market.

For years they were the leader of the pack for replacement and overgrips. Now, everybody is in the business. And they have responded thanks to their research and development efforts. If players are looking for overgrips or replacement grips, Gamma has a product to fit your needs. 

What is the Best Tennis Replacement Grip?

Tennis players may want the grip to do one or more of several things. Possible objectives include:

  • Absorb perspiration 

  • Have sufficient tackiness to keep the racquet from slipping 

  • Expanding the size of the handle 

  • Provide cushioning to absorb vibrations. 

Therefore, the definition of the “best” will be different from individual to individual. Gamma has products to address all of these needs.

Overgrips vs. Replacement Grips

Gamma makes both. See our guide that explains all the differences. But there are no rules! The key is to find a grip or combination of grips to meet all your objectives. All racquets have a grip covering the handle needing replacement from time to time. This would normally be a replacement grip but it doesn’t have to be. It could just be overgrip material.

Many times a grip is covered by an overgrip or grip tape. Trying to get just the right combination requires trial and error. Since prices are so reasonable, you can afford to experiment until you find just the right grip for you. Some racquet makers have constructed their handles to need grips that are proprietary due to their length.

When Should I Replace my Grip?

Pros will replace their grips after every match and sometimes even during a match. Most players do not need to do it that frequently. There are several indications it is time to replace:

  • The grip is hard.

  • The grip is no longer absorbing any perspiration.

  • If your hand is slipping while swinging the racquet and especially at contact with the ball.

  • You notice an increase in vibrations affecting your elbow or shoulder.

Who Should Buy Gamma Grips?

  • Players currently using Gamma whose grips have worn out.

  • Players seeking a new feel for their racquet. Sometimes a new grip will be all you need.

  • Value buyers. With very reasonable prices, Gamma makes quality grips for very reasonable prices.
