    Badminton grips guide

    It's been over three years since I wrote the original BC grips guide. This new guide corrects some mistakes, and offers much more detailed advice.

    Thanks for your patience waiting for this. I hope you like it. :)

    Please do let me know what you think -- both about the article and the website. There are bound to be some errors, so let me know if you spot one!

    Some of the photos are blurred; I will replace these when I'm next on a photoshoot.

    Hold on. Which one is the overhead smash grip? Is it the same as the clear grip, the basic grip?

    Edit: I also see that you have your pinky, ring and middle finger pretty spread out. When I start swinging the three fingers almost are forced to stay together. How can I correct this? Or is it necessary?

    This is "The Ultimate Grip Guide" in my books. Thanks Gollumn. It's much appreciated.

    The only problem with the site is that female readers will be disappointed by not seeing your legs in the photos. :)
