Badminton Gripping Technique This teaches you the basic badminton gripping technique. Before you even enter the badminton court, are you holding your racquet correctly? How to Hold a Badminton Racket The correct way of holding a racquet is as simple as a FRIENDLY HANDSHAKE. Imagine the grip of the racquet as a hand approaching to shake your hand. Go ahead and hold the racquet as if you’re shaking someone’s hand. Your thumb should be pressing comfortably against one of the wider surface of the racquet grip while the rest of your hand holds the racquet as if you’re shaking a person’s hand. The way you hold your racket can affect the flexibility of your wrist. In order to execute strong badminton strokes with high accuracy, your wrist needs to be flexible. To achieve this, make sure you: Do not grip your racquet too tightly. This will make your wrist less flexible in rotating and flicking. Use ONLY your thumb, index, and middle finger to control the racket. Your last 2 fingers should rest comfortably on the badminton grip to balance the weight of the racquet. By doing this, it enables your wrist to be more flexible and move more freely.
