Greetings coach,

I saw two types of racket and i want to know the difference and effect of using them.

One has a long hand grip and the other has a short hand grip.

Thank you.

Hi Pankaj,

Are you referring to the length of the handle on the bat? If so then the bat with a long handle is designed for shakehand players and the one with the short handle is designed for penhold players. You can see the difference in these two grips in our video called Get a Grip.
