It’s about time, right? Finally, after a decade and a half of dominance, Rafael Nadal has his very first signature racket. Behold, the Babolat Pure Aero Rafa.
You might have seen him holding it aloft at the French Open when he secured a landmark 20th Grand Slam title – now, the stunning limited edition frame is available for all players to enjoy.
To give young players the chance to play like Rafa, the Babolat Pure Aero Junior 26 features all the same technology as the full-size racket Nadal uses on tour, but in a shorter length, lightweight frame. Aeromodular3 technology reduces wind drag to allow that recognisable Rafa ripped forehand, while FSI Spin combines with an open 16/19 string pattern to maximise spin potential.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
