“The art is in where you start”. It’s important to remember the basics when it comes to stroke production. There are three components to consider when working on strokes: the grip, the swing and cialis visa the body.

When working with a young beginner it is difficult to determine if that kid will one day stay with a two-handed backhand or go on to develop a one-handed backhand. For that reason it is imperative that they start with the correct grips. We label the grips accordingly using the number system as the diagram illustrates.
