The panhandle grip is mainly used for forehand shots in front of your body. That means it’s useful for many forehands in the midcourt or at the net, but not in the rearcourt.

  • Mostly used for forehands in front of your body
  • About a 90 degree turn from a forehand grip
  • The thumb should not go straight up the side of the handle (when hitting a forehand)
