Release or Rotate Which Backhand Technique Is Right for You?

Miami, FL-

When learning the backhand tennis students are left to decide if they want a one-handed or two-handed backhand. One is easier to learn for some than others. It depends on a lot on a few factors including: your physique, non dominant hand skills and some personality traits.

Want to learn more about this process and decision?

If you live in Miami sign up for one of our tennis clinics in Coconut Grove.
