Straight Hold

The straight hold is the position with which players start the game. However, it is not always straight hold when players serve the shuttle. The straight hold is the one where your fingers are visible to the person who is standing right in front of you. But that is not always advisable. Let us take an example of a shot. If a player has a straight hold, it would be difficult for him to take a shot that drifts towards his right or left. Hence, the grip is always held a bit lose. It is to make sure that the adjustments take place within a short period of time.

Lateral And Top- Bottom Hold

A very few players hold the racket on top of the grip. This is not very helpful. But it may confuse the opponent. Well, you might be thinking that the opponent might not be able to watch your movement. But that is not true. A clever opponent always watches your game. But the bottom hold of the racket will give you a very good balance to switch to both the lateral and vertical sides.
