In this activity, pupils will focus on the basic “V” grip. Children work with a balloon and a racket, and are asked to keep balloon up in the air with basic V-grip. The V-grip is used to play strokes on the forehand side where the shuttle is level with the player. The thumb and first finger of the hand create a “V” shape on the racket handle.
This activity can be found in Shuttle Time BWF Schools Badminton Teachers’ Manual Module 5, Lesson 1: Basic Grips.
