Hi Alois and Jeff,

I am curious to know whether you can change your grip in a match. For example, from shakehand to penhold in the same match. Thank you Harikrishnan

Hi Harikrishnan,

You certainly can change your grip during a match. In fact you can change it during a point if you like.

Most people are better off training with a single grip though and hence become more proficient using that grip. I can't recall seeing anyone change grips during a match.
