Designed for junior players looking for the perfect combination of power and feel, the Babolat Pure Drive 26 boasts Babolat’s FSI and GT technologies, just like the adult versions.
Its redesigned, open 16/19 string pattern allows easy access to spin, while FSI Power technology utilises new diamond grommets to extend the sweetspot across the entire width of the racket.
The new Pure Drive also features Cortex in the throat, providing improved vibration dampening for a more precise, accurate feel. Working together with GT technology, Cortex makes the Pure Drive an inherently stable racket, an effect furthered by the racket’s elliptical beam.

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.
