May 04, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 128

Squash grips, is the term used to describe the methods used in holding the squash racquet during play, and also the material that is used on the end of the racquet to increase grip. It's important to fully understand how holding your racquet in different ways affects your performance, and hand in hand with this, how having a good grip material helps.

Generally, the method you use in your grips is down to personal preference and what works best for you. However there are some quick tips which can improve your grips and improve your game. Holding the grip more towards the bottom of the racquet has different advantages to holding higher up the racquet. Holding the low end of the squash grip allows for increased reach and leverage. The increased reach will help you reach those shots that normally might just zip by your racquet. There are also some advantages to holding the grip further up the racquet, more control for one. The racquet will feel light and you will be able to react quicker for drop shots, quick volleys and responding to those deep back wall shots more efficiently.

Replacing the grip on your squash racquet is necessary to keeping your grip effective. Overuse can lead to a slippery grip, and this will ultimately affect your performance. Replacing the squash tape is simple, but choosing what kind of replacement tape to use requires a little research. There are different kinds of squash grip materials to use. If you are just looking for some extra bulk on your squash grip to make it more comfortable or easy to hold, a thin over grip is probably the best option. If you are replacing the entire squash grip, then opt for a thick replacement grip. When choosing the type of squash grip tape to use, look for features such as tackiness for better grip, and also how dry the grip will stay while in use. There are plenty of styles and colours to suite your tastes but ensure you are getting the correct type, and features on the grip you choose.

Having a good quality grip material will give you a much needed edge in a sport where your racquet is your key to success. grips are relatively low in price and should be replaced regularly to ensure professional upkeep of your equipment.
