Course Outline and Notes

Key points to remember for video 1 on the two-handed backhand:

In this intro video, we take a look at the most commonly used grips for both hands for the two-handed backhand.

- There are two main grips we use with our non-dominant hand (left hand if you are a righty, right hand if you are a lefty): the eastern or semi-western.

- The dominant hand would be using a continental grip.

- Using a semi-western grip will move your contact point farther out in front of you as compared to an eastern grip.
