Grips

Grips improve the hold between your fingers and the racket handle. It helps you get a firm grip on the racket in your hand, and also absorbs vibrations.

Overgrips

As well as ensuring you have a good hold on the racket, overgrips increase the size of your handle . Like we said before, overgrips have the same qualities as grips, however they usually go over a base grip and are much thinner.

Towelling Grips

We’re throwing something new into the mix here. Towelling grips. They have a rather different function to grips or overgrips as they are used to absorb sweat from your hands. Their main quality is absorption, which is why they’re made of cotton.

2. How To Add A Grip Or Overgrip To Your Badminton Handle

Translate Below:

  1. Wind the grip around the handle, starting from the bottom.
  2. Let each turn of the grip overlap the one before by about 3mm and then cut off the excess just beneath the neck of the racket.
  3. To keep the grip in place, use finishing glue on the final turn of the grip.
