Badminton Grip – The Bevel Grip tutorial


In this video I will talk about the
bevel grip. Grip in general is one of the most important areas in badminton. I
will show you some very very cool point of view videos about where to position
your fingers, and then I will have five different examples on where we use the
bevel grip. I will also show you that in some very very cool slow-motion footage
so you can see what’s going on. The bevel grip is where you have the
the smooth movement is where you have all the control, it is used where you do all
these nice and very precise shots, it’s a very delicate grip to have. Usually when
we use the bevel grip is also combined with very loose fingers, it’s combined
with the the nice touch to the shuttle the nice feeling there’s all the precise
shots when we have the bevel grip. When you have your thumb on the small
edge on the racket where we have the bevel grip, it’s also important to
mention these four fingers if they are all the way down here very close to each
other very tight, it’s not the best position to be in with your fingers to
have this smooth touch on the shuttle, so have loose fingers and have them a
little bit apart this one a little bit higher up than the other three, so these
two fingers are the fingers that’s doing all the control you have the control up
here with the thumb or the index finger.

  1. Thanks for the awesome video Thomas! I have few questions:
    1. Do you change bevel grip to thumb on the side grip when playing deep backhand cross drop? It is easier to slice that way when you are rally late.
    2. I found that using bevel grip while serving let you use rotation of arm so you can do safe "flicks" to the baseline. (Is it a good idea to do this? I think almost all pros serve with bevel with low backhand serve )
    3. Is it good to change grip on forehand similarly, like rotating by 20-40 degrees to play late cross drops? I think advanced players can see that you adjusted the grip but it is hard to play cross drops when you are late into the shot.

  2. Except for the backhand defensive shots I almost always use a thumb grip, is that wrong? I prefer using thick grips which makes the handle completely round shaped probably that is why I could never differentiate between a thumb grip and a bevel grip.
    You elucidated everything very nicely as usual, I will try to implement them in my game 😊☺️

  3. Thanks for the video !! Super like always🙏. I just had a question. When the shuttle is near the body(back court and backhand side), you need more flexibility in your wrist in order to tale the shuttle. But in my opinion, the bevel grip takes a bit of flexibility off. Should i either take a step on the side in order to gain that missing flexibility or change the grip? Thanks😁😁

  4. Another excellent and informative video, great work well done! I have a question: What is the purpose in no 5 of playing that shot to the deadzone as a sliced shot? Deception? Because the spin/wobble of the shuttle is long gone once it passes the net.

  5. Backhand serve with a bevel grip? That's new to me. I've always served with a backhand thumb grip for both the backhand short and flick serve.

    I'll be trying that in training, thanks.

  6. Everyone polled for forehand grip and you did bevel hmm weird? Hey i have a question the panhand grip and hammer grip are both different. In panhand grip we have to rotate the bevel grip counter clockwise can be used in cross court backhand drop shots. And about the hammer grip it is used for hard smashes we hold the grip as like a hammer.

  7. How do u shoot to get a head on view. Which camera and how to use it . And how much it cost and can I buy it and take videos like that
