Have you ever thought whether all this while you are using the wrong badminton grip for your racket or you just do not care ? I used to be the latter until I came across this awesome website which has a complete guide on simply about “how-to-play-badminton“.
Reading through the articles and the know-hows on that page has given me a new perspective about badminton grip. Basically there are 2 types of badminton grip which I have never noticed; the THICKER type and the THINNER one. What are the differences, you may ask ? Well…
If you are player who likes to play attacks meaning that you like to do smash after smash and continue with another jumping smash then the thicker grip is perfect for you. This is because, that type of player needs to hold the handle very tight in order to give all the power and energy. Thicker badminton grip will be very suitable for these types of players.
But if you are the type that like to show off your skills like doing badminton clears or badminton drops and like to engaged in a long rallies then the THINNER badminton grip is just for you. The reason behind it is that, such players need to hold their racket lightly not too tight. Holding the racket too tight will only lead to powerful stroke and gave too much power in your shot and that will only spoil your way of playing.
Therefore if you want to have an excellent control on your rackets and using a lot of wrist movement, a THINNER grip is the one that you should go for.
So how does the THICK and THIN badminton grip looks like physically.
THICK grip e.g. : Towel grip
THIN grip e.g. : Overgrip
Get the idea ?? So if your palm sweat a lot and at the same time you need something that can give you extra power while doing the jumping and smashing, go for towel grip. But if you into skills and need something light to control the racket mostly by using wrist movement then the overgrip is for you.
