OnlineTennisInstruction brings you this video on the different tennis grips. The grip is extremely important in Tennis because it determines the angle of your racket face. Way too many tennis players have problems with their strokes because of bad grips!

Most players and coaches use terminology like the contintental grip, semi-western grip, or western grip to describe certain grips. This is definitely an option but an even better option is to put numbers on the grip and then measure exactly where your hand is positioned on the grip. This method is much more precise and makes it easier for people to work on their grips.

In the video I explain the basic tennis grips that I recommend for the forehand, the one-handed backhand, the two-handed backhand and the serve.

So go ahead and look at the video to see if you have good grips or not!

  • Why would you number the left hand in a double-handed backhand? It's just there for support.
    Also, all grips are useful. It really depends on what type of swing you want to make.

  • semi western is best! allows you to flatten out a shot if you need to, and hit heavy top spin if you have strong enough hands, which most experienced players will have anyway.

  • I came here to comment on your annoying 1+ minute video ad that I was required to view in its entirety when trying to watch tennis videos. My comment? It's very annoying that I have to watch your whole ad video.

  • The best video on tennis grips by far!

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS VIDEO!
    Maybe you should make a video for PING PONG players who want to take tennis seriously.
    After seeing this video, I realized why I made so many easy mistakes, in spite of succeeding some very tricky shots just like the top ATP players in Grand Slams. I am a very good amateur table tennis player and some shots work just like in table tennis but others… oh, not at all. Grip is sooo important, go figure! I never thought about that. I was holding the tennis racquet just like the ping-pong bat and tried too many from up to down kill shots that went in the bottom of the net. That doesn't work like in ping-pong! 🙂
    But understanding spin better than some helps me a lot, though. I understand, succeed and love the slice serve, for example. Also, the slice forehand Monica Niculescu style make my opponents go crazy, when the strings are new. Not so much after a few hours. Tennis strings go bad so quickly, they need to be replaced too often to maintain heavy spin! Expensive sport for the average Eastern European…

  • When you say knunckle is on 1 where should the heel pad be? Should heel pad also in 1(always a straight line) ? If it varies then why is it not mentioned by trainers?

  • 3.5 FH is an extreme eastern FH, IMO the best grip.

  • Hi Florian, what racket do you recommend to me for one handed backhand?

  • Decent review of grips. However, IMHO it perpetuates a common teaching flaw that may create a lot of confusion and problems for many players. I was one such player…

    The problem is usind the index finger's hand knuckle used as a grip guide provides very limited feeling of how the racquet is oriented during actual play. This is because many times during play this knuckle may only be barely touching or not touching the racquet — how's that supposed to help folks get the racquet grip oriented? Furthermore, bringing this knuckle into the tight contact with the racquet may result in the grip of death that sucks away power and touch, while perhaps also promoting tennis elbow problems.

    For me, using the position of the index finger's second knuckle on the racquet is a lot easier to feel and track while playing and when flipping between various grips during fast play. This knuckle is opposed by the thumb's first knuckle on the opposite side of the grip — this duo defines the plane of least resistance (and most easily attained direction of power) that a racquet might take when executing a proper swing pattern for that particular grip. It's also a relatively light grip — it's purpose is TO GUIDE racquet swing orientation, NOT provide racquet POWER. Yes, the swing path is also the same path the wrist bends in — go figure.

    For example, for a continental grip, the thumb's first knuckle is on the top flat edge of the grip while the index finger's second knuckle is on the bottom of edge of the grip. This puts the head of the racquet perpendicular to the ground. Rotate the grip points to the next flat spot for the next grip position, etc… It's also possible that for some hand and racquet sizes, the index finger's second digit and/or the thumb's first digit might be easier reference points than the knuckles.

    Also, I'm using an "OK" grip with the edge of the thumb pressed to the top edge of the middle finger forming an 'OK' sign. Held with modest tightness, this simple OK ring creates an axis ring for the racquet to rotate around to pass the maximum power of the whipping action created by proper stroke mechanics to the racquet head at ball contact along with the fine tuning guidance of the other fingers — aka, no power sucking death grip. The OK grip also creates a slight diagonal orientation of the fingers over the racquet handle, which is what top players use for most strokes for ergonomic reasons noted above.

    Thanks for reading. Now I'll retire to my closet to dream up other alternate world realities and confusion…
