One of the most basic things you need to know before you even start to play badminton is how you going to grip your badminton racket. If you don’t even know how to hold your racket correctly, how can you improve further?
Firstly, badminton grips should be relaxed so that the muscles of the forearm can work effectively.
Many players believe that a tight grip gives them more power. That is wrong as in order to generate power, the grip must initially be relaxed.
As a test, hold out your badminton racket to a friend and ask him to take it from you. The racket should come out your hand smoothly and effortlessly; if he encounters resistance, then you are holding the racket too tightly.
