    Hey Shuttlebest,

    It's probably tennis elbow. Either you haven't been rising your elbow high enough when doing overhead shots or you're using a very stiff racquet. As stated in your profile, you're a beginner...try using a more flexible racquet and get someone to show you the proper footwork and proper way of holding the racquet. Also, please complete the user profile as it's helpful for the rest of us to understand your background in order to answer your questions.

    It would help you more to search the forum for helpful tips. Many of the problems you have and will encounter have been visited and revisited to death on this forum. Happy reading and good luck!

    Hey Shuttlebest,

    It doesn't matter which one you use... I still answer to both online. Anyway, with regards to racquet selection... it really doesn't matter as long as your racquet is flexible because it's more forgivable when you mis-hit your shots (which would be often if you're a beginner). My suggestion is to change to a cheap beginner/intermediate racquet if your Isometric 777 is too stiff for you. BTW, I have never heard of that brand so can't really help you there.

    What's more important than racquet is the skills and wearing the proper shoes (badminton or volleyball specific).

    Lifting a weight, around 5 kg, can help and prevent any kind of injury.

    When your body hurts like that, it's trying to tell you something. Rest and take time off baddy. If not possible, then try to play more softer shots (such as drops and clears) and focuse more on shot placement. You really don't want to get into a situation where your injury turns chronic.

    If you have tennis elbow the best and cheapest approach is to add an extra grip to your racket to take away the pressure from gripping it too tighly, remember your grip should be quite loose tightening up on impact.

    If you add a grip you cannot hold it as tightly because the extra grip prevents you from tightening up as much.

    Give it a go.

    But as previously posted pain is an indicator that something is amiss
