    The grip you use for backhands must be adjusted depending on the situation:
    • The thumb grip is used for many backhand shots in front of your body, especially at the net.
    • The basic grip is used for some backhands at the side of your body, although often the bevel grip may be used instead.
    • The bevel grip is used for backhands in all parts of the court, but especially for backhand overheads (such as clears).
    • The panhandle grip is used for late backhand overheads, and also for hairpin net shots.
    That's just a summary, however. There are many nuances of grips.
