Tennis Tip #3: Grip

I hope all of you are having an awesome day! Something I like to have students think about when taking a lesson and when playing matches is the pressure they are using when holding the grip. Most of the time, when players are having trouble with their strokes and getting power and spin on their shots, it is due to holding the grip too tightly. So a quick fix to this common problem is making your grip like holding a baby bird. When I have had students think of the grip as a baby bird, their strokes become smooth and as a result they achieve more spin and power in their game. So, the next time you go and play or take a lesson remember that you are holding a baby bird. I am excited for your games to improve!
