LEFT or RIGHT - How to tell:
Seeing that we are talking about racket arm here, if you are not sure what is your true hand, here is a useful guide:
Roll a piece of paper into a tube and tape it. Ask someone to then give it to you, and then place it to your eye - like using a telescope. Note the position:
1. Left hand nearest to left eye - most likely left-handed with left eye dominant.
2. Right hand nearest to left eye - could be right and left-handed, but left eye is dominant.
The other way round for other eye.

Oh, I meant that I can use both hand to write but not at the same time. Yeah, I write the left page with my left and vice versa, but thats when i'm not lazy. I use my left hand when i need to write really fast.

It took me a while to realise why I do some things left and some things right. So all two-handed tools and sports (baseball, cricket) and guitar, I am right-handed. Single tools, rackets, left-handed. Left-handed gadgets make great presents. Give someone right-handed a left-handed cork screw or a ruler. Hahaha, endless puzzlement.

Thanks to you all so far. Many interesting combinations. Have you ever wondered what is the root cause of handedness?
It goes back a long way in evolution, though there may be an inherent biological cause of a species developing handedness. Though once the % drifts to right handed, then it is bound to stay that way because of parent / child teaching.
I particularly enjoy driving right-hand-drive cars - the gear shift and clutch are on the same side of the body, which makes for excellent coordination and control.

left and right hander
i think it should be close to 90% - 10%
the best and fastest results to get is looking at courts where many people are playing
and ask coaches or even teachers
in my group there are more than a hundred trainees and left hander to not come up to 10%
in my courts, out of 39 courts hardly see 10% left hander!
one time i ask a few teachers in schools they all agree not many per hundred even less than 10%

I wonder if anyone play a game with both right AND left hand like Miyamoto Musashi

Dominant right but used to play with left hand when younger.

Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good.
