How to Choose Your Badminton Grip or Overgrip
Different types of grips

There are three different types of grips/overgrips, you'll find more details on them below. Each one has different properties that will answer to your expectations and needs.



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 increase the size of your handle and ensures you have the best possible hold on the racket. Overgrips have the same qualities as grips but are much thinner.


Toweling grips

Toweling grips have a rather different function to grips or overgrips as they are used to absorb any sweat coming from your hands. Their main quality is absorption, which is why they are made of cotton.


How To Add A Grip Or Overgrip To Your Badminton Handle



- Wind the grip around the handle, starting from the bottom.

- 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.

- To keep the grip in place, use finishing glue on the final turn of the grip.
