In this video you'll learn how to change the overgrip on your tennis racket.
Over time, grips will become worn and will need replacing
This can be easily done by yourself
The keys steps are, removing the old grip tape, winding the new one, applying the finishing tape
Unpeel and remove the old overgrip tape you wish to replace
Take your new overgrip and unroll it
Note that this normally include a strip of finishings tape which you can leave to one side
Unpeel the tab which protects the adhesive side of the tape
This edge, which is generally narrower, should be wrapped around the bottom of the racket handle
Press the tape at the butt cap onto one of the side bevels - here we'll start at bevel 8
Holding the tape taut, wrap it around the handle, working up diagonally towards the throat
Each new layer of tape should partly cover the previous one - but not too much
Secure the grip with the finishing tape
Now you know how to change your overgrip
Over to you!
