Divide the class into 4 groups. Each group is assigned one court. Each court represents one of the 4 types of serves and each side represents either forehand or backhand grip. Each group will practice the serve that the court represents. Within the group, the members will rotate and practice both forehand and backhand grip for that serve. After 5 minutes, the groups will rotate to another court and practice another serve and so on.
- This grip is used to hit shots that are on the forehand side of your body and around the head shots. - Hold the racket head with your non-playing hand so that the handle points towards you. - Your racket face shall be perpendicular to the floor.
- Place your playing hand on the handle as if you are shaking hands with it. - There shall be a V shape in between your thumb and your index finger. - The racket handle shall rest loosely in your fingers for greater flexibility. - Can try shortening your grip and place it nearer to the shaft to increase control and accuracy when serving and hitting from the forecourt and midcourt.
- This grip is used to hit shots that are on the backhand side of your body. - Hold the racket as you would on a forehand grip.
- Turn the racket anti-clockwise so that the V shape moves leftwards. - Place your thumb against the back bevel of the handle for greater leverage and power. - The racket handle shall also rest loosely in your fingers. - Can try shortening your grip and place it nearer to the shaft to increase control and accuracy when serving and hitting from the forecourt and midcourt.
