5 Tips to Improve Your Backhand

  1. Improve your grip: The right grip can make all the difference in your backhand. Experiment with different grips to find the one that feels most comfortable and allows you to generate the most power.
  2. Practice proper technique: A proper backhand technique involves using your whole body to generate power, not just your arm. Make sure you are using a fluid motion and following through with your swing.
  3. Focus on footwork: Proper footwork is essential for a strong backhand. Make sure you are positioning yourself correctly and using your weight transfer to generate power.
  4. Get expert feedback: Consider taking lessons from an instructor who can provide expert feedback on your backhand technique and help you identify areas for improvement.
  5. Practice regularly: Consistent practice is key to improving your backhand. Set aside time each week to practice your backhand technique.

    It would be most helpful if you attached an example video to go along with the tip. The tip itself is great advice, but a picture (or video) truly does make a better impact. By the way, I am loving the new V2. Even with it being the same weight as the other ICON paddles I have, the thicker paddle and the composite of the paddle seem to give me much more control.
