Which is a common grip for holding a tennis racquet?

It depends on the shot you are hitting. On a topspin forehand, the taught grip is a semi-western. It provides an easy way to get spin and hit angles. A slice forehand would require more of a continental grip to get the necessary under spin. All backhands, volleys, and serves are commonly hit with a continental grip.


What are the three tennis grips?

Actually, there are six types of tennis grips (for gripping the racquet with your hand), not three. (As for the actual grips you put on a tennis racquet, there are hundreds, and too many to name).The grips are as follows:Continental grip (used in serves and volleys)Eastern forehandSemi-western forehand (most common tennis grip)Western forehandEastern backhand gripDouble handed backhand gripThere are many variations of these six grips, but these are the main grips that variations are based off of. Many players develop variations of these grips to suit their needs.


Types of grip in tennis?

The six grips (in clockwise order for right-handed players)The Eastern Backhand gripThe Eastern Backhand grip, is obtained when placing the hand such that the base knuckle of the index finger and heel of the hand are right on the 1st bevel. This is essentially the same as the Western forehand grip and allows for significant spin and control. The Continental gripThe Continental grip, also called the Chopper grip, is obtained when placing the hand such that the base knuckle of the index finger is right on the second bevel. It is naturally obtained when holding the racket as if it were an axe, for chopping. Hence the second name "Chopper grip". The Continental grip is suitable for a variety of shots and therefore is often taught to absolute beginners, so that they should not bother changing grips while learning the basics of the game. The Continental grip does not allow for much topspin on groundstrokes. Since modern tennis, especially clay court tennis, has shown an evolution towards topspin, the Continental grip has gone out of fashion with professional players for hitting groundstrokes. It is still the preferred grip for serves and volleys. The rest of the grips strike a balance between high spin capacity on one hand, and variety and control on the other hand. The Eastern Forehand gripThe Eastern Forehand grip is obtained when placing the hand such that the base knuckle of the index finger is right on the third bevel. It is naturally obtained when picking up a racquet lying on the ground, or "shaking hands" with a perpendicularly held racquet. The Eastern Forehand grip allows for more topspin on the forehand while keeping control, because the shift along the handle is only 45 degrees (from the multi-purpose Continental grip). The Semi-Western gripThe Semi-Western grip is obtained by placing the hand such that the base knuckle of the index finger is right on the fourth bevel. This racquet grip is popular with baseliners who like to hit with much topspin. It gets more hand behind the grip, causing shots to result with more ferocity, and provides a contact point much farther out front. The Western gripThe Western grip, is obtained when placing the hand such that the base knuckle of the index finger is right on the fifth bevel. Compared to the Continental grip, the blade has rotated 135 degrees. This forces the wrist in an uncomfortable twist but allows for the greatest possible spin. This is basically equivalent to the Eastern Backhand grip, except that the same face of the racquet is used to strike the ball. The Western grip generates maximum topspin and power. Because of the angle of your tennis racquet when you use the Western Forehand grip, you should make contact with the ball a bit earlier than you would with the eastern forehand grip.The Double-Handed Backhand gripThe basic Two-Handed Backhand grip, is obtained by holding the racquet in a regular Continental grip, then placing the left hand above holding it in a left-handed Semi-Western Forehand grip. Holding the racquet using two hands for the backhand is very common, but, there are many variations in the precise positioning of the two hands.

How do you know what type of grip to use in tennis?

There are a few different grips you use in tennis. The different grips include: the Continental Grip, Eastern Grip, Western Grip, Semi-Western Grip, and two-handed backhand grip. Let's start with the Continental Grip. You would use this grip when you are at the net hitting volleys and overheads. You will also use it when serving. You hold the racquet like a hammer with the "V" of your thumb and index finger on the narrower edge of the racquet grip. You'll want to use the Eastern Grip when you wish to hit ground storkes that are flat or have topspin. Hold the racquet with the "V" slightly off to the right. You'll want to use the Western Grip when you want to use extreme topspin. This grip is a preferred grip of clay court players because topspin rules on clay. The "V" extremely far off to the right. You'll want to use the Semi-Western Grip when you want to add power and you are a baseliner. You can either hit topsin or flat with this grip. The "V" is between that of the Eastern Grip and the Western Grip. It is recommended to have a Tennis professional demonstrate the different grips for you, so that you are doing them properly.
