Are you supposed to hold the grip firmly in the palm of your hand or your fingers? I've heard conflicting advise about this as some people have advised me that gripping with fingers allows more control. However, I feel that this causes my hand to hurt after a while.

 Before you begin using the proper badminton swings, follow these steps to learn how to hold your racket. Using both the forehand and backhand grips, and being able to switch easily from one to the other, are some of the most valuable skills you'll need.

Someone once taught me the only two finger you need to grip a racquet are your thumb and middle finger. Making a tight circle around the handle, you can really whip the racquet around. All the other fingers are there for support and extra control.

i grip with the palm of my hand. i find that if i grip with my fingers it's more difficult to maintain a proper grip and the racket will twist in my hand. try both and see which you like better. you should also experiment with grip size to find what is right for you.
