How do you grip the raquet when you hit a Volley?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mark / The Mayor Dec 16, 2009. 8 Replies

My volleys are not as crisp as I'd like. I use a neutral grip and I'm getting a lot of backspin on the ball and the pace is really slow. I'm wondering if I should use a strong western grip in order…Continue

"The volly grip that i have been using for years is, not neutral but its close. I grip the racket like you grip and hammer. It will feel strange at first but, the hammer grip will give you great controll because its natural. Hope this helps."

hi robert,

there is a 4.0+ and over mixer at the bella vita condos tennis courts every saturday @ 9AM. if you want in for this saturday, let me know. most of the players there are former college players working their way back in shape. we are a bunch of old foagies trying to relive the past.

I could hop on the Deuce from Mandalay Bay and be there without to much trouble. I will wait to confirm with you if nobody else can play closer to Sahara.

Robert,
I will actually be in town the 21st - 23rd. My free time for tennis will be on the 21st, Monday from 6am - 3:30pm (first part for my conference starts at 4:30pm that night.) I do not have room to pack my racket BUT I can pack my shoes. Always love to play when I travel. I've played on the courts behind the RIviera Hotel & Casino and their pretty good. I will be staying at the Sahara this time around.
