    Default injuries caused by holding the racket too much...?

    hi all! i learned the correct way to grip the racket about 4 months ago...and during the holidays ( oct - nov )i played 3-4 times a week...and in result my finger seem to had a bump (at the ring and index finger ) it don't hurt but is irritating ...and around the nail of my the ring and index finger will seem to hurt ( like getting squzzed too long) ...why does this happen?

    must be your freaking grip too hard. Just hold it firm will do. If, its loose, your accuracy is gone. Blisters and pain is normal. You'll get the hang to it.

    No, blisters and pain are not normal. Something is wrong.

    Or maybe it might be a problem with your badminton grip!

    post some pictures on how you hold it and also where your pain is should help.

    i think it might be the size of the grip, or the actual grip itself. Some people don't like grooves or ridges, and prefer smooth grip. Some people the other way. Factor in the size of the grip that they need as well. Good luck!

    ever considered that this might have nothing to do with badminton? sounds a little bit like an inflamed nail by your discription.

    do you grip the the handle 'hard' ? even before you strike the bird?

    you are not suppose to do that, it should be loose while anticipating the next shot

    and as you strike the bird, you strike with a firm grip.

    if you play more than you often play all of a certain, you are bound to get something like this.

    as for me, there are a lot of dead skin, round patch all over my palm

    Theres a thread(old...really old) on holding your racket using your pinky and maybe ring finger. Try it out its really good. I started off with it tho, never knew other people had used it before... That way you can use half a grip like lin dan ...well thats what i do
