Best for: The environmentally-conscious player needing absorbency and tackiness
April 2020 – For some tennis players, they might not know anything about Eco-Grip as a company. They aren’t exactly household names in the tennis industry, but they do offer a pretty great option that is completely biodegradable.
The outer texture of the grip is very absorbent, which feels rough at the beginning of play. That is because a person has dry hands, and it needs to start building up a little bit of moisture to take it up a notch.
As soon as the person starts to sweat, the grip will then absorb some of the moisture and make it a pretty tacky feel overall. The holes in the grip help keep everything dry, even for those people who sweat a lot. It plays is a little similar to TournaGrip, but the perforated holes seem to dry things out a little quicker.
For those who are conscientious about the environment, there is also the bonus of these grips being completely biodegradable. It’s just another way for the company to stand out from the competition, offering tennis players an alternative that is starting to gain traction.
This is still clearly an overgrip that is flying under the radar, but they are starting to become more and more prevalent.
