How do you apply replacement tennis grips?

Applying Replacement Grips

To put on replacement tennis grips or an overgrip, start by wrapping the tapered end around the butt of the racquet, then work your way up the handle. Don't overlap or leave gaps as you go. Right-handed players should wrap clockwise; lefties, counterclockwise. This is a semi-skilled job, so you may want to have someone at the pro shop or tennis shop do it for you. Make sure you ask for a quality grip like Prince tennis grips.
