    Easy lesson on how to grip the racket and what each term means. I have taught and coached tennis for more than 30 years and I start a beginner with the “continental’ and as their ability increases, I move to the “eastern” and when they master that along with the ability to keep the ball in the court then I show the ” semi-western.” I would only introduce the “western” to a very advanced player. The player needs to be able to change grips often and rapidly during play and this ability comes from hours of practice,court time and play.
