All of the sides are referring to right-handed players. The sides must be inverted for left-handed people. Despite the fact that there are other successful techniques, this program focuses on this one. The Shakehand grip is the most common grip used by top players.

Maintain a straight wrist with your forearm by not angling it up or down. Hold the racket loosely between your thumb and index finger, with the web touching the blade’s curve. Your index finger should be against the backhand side’s edge, and your thumb should be against the forehand side’s bottom edge. The Shakehand grip is what it sounds like.

The Penhold grip is another effective grip. It gives players an advantage on the forehand and while serving, but it has a weakness on the backside, which they must overcome with their footwork.
