    I would usually extend my hand first over the net, but sometimes the other side won't extend as much... so I had to change and shake hands under the net.

    well, I've never done any shakehand. I give a "Wai" to everybody instead.

    I was taught to shake hand above the net, or outside the court.

    i used to shake over or under. i'm kind of short, so it was usually under. but then i started going to more tournaments and i noticed that a lot of the people hi-five instead of an actually shake. so now i hi-five over the net.

    In a casual setting (ie/ regular players), if I get to the net first, I usually lift-up the net with the handle of my racquet (ie/ I'm holding the shaft), extend my non-racquet hand for a hi-five under the net (thus, I'm a righty).

    In a first-time meeting or a tournament, if I lost the game I will offer my sweaty hand, :P oops, I mean after wiping my hands, I will reach over the net with my right hand.

    I usually high five now. Depends on the people I'm playing. I picked up the "high five" from my coach. He did it with his badminton buddies and with us whenever we played him. So I just started doing that too.

    We (people and me) don't shake hands, instead, we say "thanks"

    I used to do over the net handshakes quite often due to the fact that I'm quite tall. However besides playing at a private club, I get the opportunity to play at recreational clubs too and many players at these rec clubs tend to shake hands below the net. I guess because I've gotten accustomed to under the net handshakes, I 've shifted to doing those more often.

    I m usually over the net but if the other guy has his hand under the net, then that is fine. Over the net shake hand seems like more champion-like. hehe

    For me, if it's shaking hands, it's usually under the net. Sometimes we're lazy / goofy, so we just give high fives over the net.

    Upon seeing the title I instantly thought "firmly"

    I hate limp handshakes.

    Default under the net

    Lift the bottom of the net up and shake hands waist-height. Sometimes get confused, when reaching out for handshake and was greeted with a mid-high fives AND extremely p***-off when others refuse to shake hands (no sportsmanship..lah!)

    Well, at a club, I will definitely shake hands under the net, sometimes over, but usually under.

    With my doubles partner, we usually give high fives, sometimes very loud ones, or sometimes I play with him and miss purposely!

    It depends. Most of the times i shake hand.. over the net. But in some places where i play , some people don't even shake hands when the game is over.
