What kind of tennis racket should I get?

I’m interested in tennis, and I’ve gotten four beginner-level, compulsory lessons at school. I turned 13 just a couple weeks ago, and I’m a bit weak and a slow runner for my age. I know that heavy and head-light rackets are safest for tennis elbow, but because I’m not very strong I’d like to start with a racket between 8 and 10 oz. And if it helps, I’m 5’4". What tennis racket do you recommend?

    Well the heavy and head-light rackets are player’s rackets, aka for good people. So I would recommend a light (under 11 oz) racket that is head-heavy. Since you are a beginner you will probably miss the ball, so an oversized racket will help. Also you probably can’t generate your own power, so the head-heavy racket provides it. Good Luck!

    the head junior raquets are always a good starting raquet. I used that when i started playing and recently moved up to the intelligence x. Either way pick something YOUR comfortable with and not something that necessarily looks good.
    GOod luck
