    グリップから出ている物は何    (ラケットの握りを直す)
    2010年10月11日

    ラケットのグリップエンドからはみ出している物は、割り箸(ストロー)です。
    初中級者の時ラケットの持ち方を治されませんでしたか ?
    グリップをイースタングリップに直すのは、時間が経つと難しくなります。 
    そこでグリップから10センチ程度割り箸(ストロー)を出しウエスタングリップで
    ラケット操作をすると手首に当たり、気が付きます。
    この練習をするとグリップが気になりイースタングリップを意識するようになり
    ます。 
    ただ箸は痛い場合もありますのでストローも使用しています。
    初中級者の多いクラブの皆様、一度トライしてみませんか 
    当店のスタッフにご相談いただければ、説明いたします。

    Anyone care to provide a rough (non-googled) translation?
    Just looking at the pictures, I can't really see out how chopsticks are going to help my badminton.
    It's certainly innovative though...

    I wonder how others would stare at you on court while you smash away with a pair of chopsticks in hand. This is for only off court use right?

    Imagine if you did a big smash and the racket flew out of your grip and you're left in the court holding a pair of chopsticks.=D

    Thing that extends from the grip of the racket, chopsticks (straw) is.
    What a way to hold the racket was not cured at the first intermediate?
    The re-grip the eastern grip is more difficult over time.
    10 centimeters from where chopsticks grip (straw) in western grip out
    Wrist action to hit racket'll notice.
    Isutangurippu now become aware of and concerned about this practice grip
    Masu.
    I also use chopsticks just because it might hurt the straw.

    You are suppose to grip your racket with your fingers. The part nearer to your palm.. You are actually not suppose to grip your racket with the plam of your hand. Only tennis players grip their rackets with their palm.

    Gripping with your fingers allows you space to switch gripping style during play..
