If looking to order a glove off the Internet or on another occasion when you do not have the opportunity to try it on, you can measure your hand size to determine what size glove that you are going to need. It is imperative to have a properly fitting glove due to it helps create proper feel and grip. When there is a glove that does not fit properly it can lead to a loss of grip, and bad effects to shots. It is extremely important to finding proper glove size and can be done by finding simple measurements.


Difficulty: Easy
Step 1
Measure from the upper palm of your hand around over the knuckles, just under the bottoms of where your fingers start. It is a complete circle around your hand in the lower knuckle area. Go across your entire palm and back of hand.

Determine the length. Make sure you measure the hand that the glove will be used for depending on if you are right or left-handed. Both hands are not the same size. It is important to measure the correct one.

Find your size according to the measurements that you have taken. Typically, a small is 7 to 8 inches; medium is 8 to 8.5 inches; large is 8.5 to 9.25 inches; and extra-large is 9.25 to 10 inches.
