Grips are different ways of holding the racket. You need to get comfortable using a wide range of grips, because badminton has so many different shots and rally situations.
You need to know a few different grips, because we’ll use these names when you’re learning a shot. Remember that these grips are only a starting point.
If you understand the principles behind grips, it will help you make sense of the details later.
You must be able to change between different grips, so that you can adapt to different situations in the rally. Grip changes need to be quick and accurate.
You will need to adjust your grip depending on the rally situation. For example, you might change the angle of your grip when the shuttle is behind you; or you might shorten your grip at the net.
