How to Grip Your Racket Properly | Badminton Lessons


The next topic of discussion is how to hold
your badminton racket. For the forehand you want to pretend that
the racket is somebody else’s hand and you’re shaking their hand. So you’re going to do this, this is your basic
badminton forehand grip. While you’re on the topic of the forehand
grip I guess I’m going to show you how to do a basic forehand clear swing. So you go like this and it’s important to
notice that it’s a rotation of the elbow and not a wrist shot. You can actually damage your wrist if you
do this too hard. The next basic grip is your backhand grip
in which you start off with your forehand grip and you tilt the racket maybe about half
an inch to the right and the basic backhand clear looks something like this. Again, it’s a rotation of the elbow and not
a wrist flick. And that’s how to properly hold your badminton
grip.

  1. Damn, I thought this was a masturbation video.

  2. From my sub-box, the title reads: "How to Grip Your…"

  3. I came here to learn how to masturbate. I guess, I'm going to have to use a woman instead. I am so ronery.

  4. Ohh this is going to spawn sooo many stupid sex related jokes.

  5. I disagree with his technique for clearing, rotation of the elbow in that manner has a higher chance of injuring your elbow. The power of the shot comes from the wrist mainly and you do not get injured because your arm is supposed to go across your body in a smooth arc.

  6. I remember when these were actually useful.
