This week on Squashskills we welcome David Pearson, former England National coach and coach to World Champions Nick Matthew and Laura Massaro. In this series David will be focusing on the forehand technique, starting off with the grip.
Second time watching this series. Love it! Thank you!

+1 for the view from the top

Great vid! I stumbled on this after Laura's recent video on how DP changed her grip position. I agree with the posts below, I'd love some further details on how open the face should be at rest.

Agree with others. A view of the top of the grip and a bit more detail about the how rotated the racket is in the grip, e.g. how "open" is the racket face when held in a neutral position. Otherwise these 3 minutes have changed 25 years of bad habits. Wow. Thank you!

So True. Like Daniel above, I stumbled upon Laura's Grip Story and it inspired me to change. I always found it almost impossible to hit nicks on drops or three wall boasts from the back. This new grip and new racquet angle changed all that. As DP points out, I had the 'V' between my thumb and forefinger but the grip was too much in my palm. Amazing how much difference the correct grip makes. Thanks Dave.

Agree with Paul - could we have a more detailed video or photos/article on the grip? As such a 'simple' but important part of the game. It is difficult to spot the slight nuances with a video. Thank you

would have been nice to have a top view of the grip.

Agreed. Dave is looking down at his grip from above. We need the same perspective above his head so we see what he sees. A GO PRO perspective would do the trick!
