Get a Grip

How do you introduce an effective Badminton grip to young players?
I needed to know how to prevent my own children from using a ‘panhandle grip”.
My problem was I didn’t know what practices and tasks to do before others 🙁
I wish I’d known about using Wallwork and starting with below shoulder strokes

Badminton Ireland Conference

This presentation was given at the Badminton Ireland Coaches Conference 2019

The slides are accompanied by 4 videos that can all be found at the bottom of this post.  Each video will give you some ideas to create an effective badminton grip from the beginning of a player’s journey.

If you would like to read more about attending this great Conference then please click this image.  Hopefully, I will see you there next summer.

The introduction of gips \& prevention of inappropriate ones should be the goal of every coach when working with novice players
Are the practices and tasks you use develop the grips/holds that that are effective
Inappropriate grips will inhibit and in some cases prohibit the development of strokes and tactics
The way a person first holds or grips a racket can and should be influenced from the very first lesson
Changes later can be very difficult !
As always, I would be very grateful for any feedback or comments
