Hello All

              Grip size has perplexed me for some time now so I am hoping someone will have a clear

answer on it! So here goes.From a strickly mechanical point of view if say my rackett handle was

large,it would give me more control over the face because it would require more force to turn it

in my hand,based on the same principle that a screwdriver with a fatter handle would give you more torque on the screw.

But on the other hand does it make your rackett a less pricise instrument.With a smaller grip my

wrist muscles are more fully contracted and possibly more engaged ,thus allowing you to use

it like a scalpel than an axe.Oh Squash is a complicated mistress!!!!

                                                                     Thanks in advance   Harrowman.

The tab under the Squash Library/Squash Technique/Grip will show some photos and explanations about the grip and grip size.  It is not one size fits all; it is individual depending on the size of your hands/fingers.

The relevant content tab top lefthand column will show some previous posts.
