The Advantages of the Continental Grip in Pickleball

The Art of Pickleball Coach Jerry Jaffe

Good pickleball players use a variety of grips. The grip that Coach Jerry Jaffee prefers is the continental grip, mainly because it’s so versatile. It allows you to get under the pickleball so you can lift it up easily. This grip also allows you to switch between forehand and backhand quicker. When executing volleys, the continental grip tends to lock the paddle into the proper position so you don’t need to change your grip before a hit.
