RACQUET SPORTS TIP
From: Kevin Cretella, The Director of Racquet Sports

“Tennis Grip Changes”


The non-dominant hand is the hand responsible for changing grips in between shots. While in the ready position, relax your dominant hand and use your non-dominant hand to rotate the racquet to achieve the correct grip for the shot you are performing based on the incoming ball.

BIG NEWS IN THE PICKLEBALL WORLD:

The United States Pickleball Association instituted a rule change on a trial basis for 2021 wherein there are no lets. If a server hits the net on their serve and the ball lands past the kitchen line and in the correct box, the ball is now in play.
