In this video you will learn how to hold the backhand grip.
Hold your racket with your non racket hand and place the palm of your racket hand flat on the strings.
Slide down and hold the handle as if you were shaking hands with it.
Wrap the handle with your little, ring and middle fingers.
Turn the racket to the right if you are right-handed, to the left if you are left-handed.
Extend the thumb and form a diagonal shape across the back of the racket handle. There should be a gap between the heel of the thumb and the racket.
If you turn the racket parallel to the ground the thumb should on the top.
Make sure the palm does not extend below the handle.
Your grip should be relaxed and tightened only on impact.
The backhand grip is primarily used for the backhand serves, the lob, the net kill, the block, and the drop shot.
