Therefore the squash converts will most likely use 2-hands, in the short term at least, as that is what feels most comfortable.
I think eventually players who decide to play seriously will eventually convert to a one handed swing. For the social players who just hit and run for fun it is not important for them to win or improve.
So let us look at the advantages of the double handed stroke from the player's point of view, particularly on the backhand:
- do not have to change the swing.
- can keep the original grip.
- keeping the two features above will give power since the action will be a pushing/slapping action without forearm rotation.
- double hand stroke will allow a swing while standing front on without having to turn to the back wall.
The advantages of having the squash grip and basic swing:
- easier to get the ball out of the corners.
- the swing can be minimised easily by bending the elbow more, and/or shortening the grip.
- the open racket face allows for execution of drops and boasts when the ball is low.
- less unforced errors.
- there is more deception with a greater variety of shots possible by using the open racket face.
- using one hand allows the body to stretch further and cover more court.
- This can be a time consuming and frustrating experience where the standard may even decline at first, so it can take a special type of person to persevere through this initial stage of learning.
