Hi there! It has come to my attention that there are two different types of grips in ping pong (table tennis) that is being used in playing the game. I have always used the so-called “hand shake” grip as seen in the images below.
However, there is a grip that I have seen others use as well which is called the “pen-hold” grip. I have not seen too many people use this before. If memory serves me right, I have had a physical education class in high school where one person was using this grip almost all the time whereas all the students, including myself was using the hand shake grip.
I have included a YouTube video on how both of these grips are held and how to find the one grip that suits you best. So, if you are into playing playing ping pong, which I hope you are, which of these grips do you use? Or, if you have a grip that’s not listed on this post, what kind of grip would it be? I would like to know what kind of grips in holding the while playing on a ping pong table. Please let me know in the comments section below, and please share this on social media. I look forward to hearing what you all have to say. Thanks for stopping by. Cheers!
