I was told by quite a number of coaches to use wrist action, probably because I was a tennis player for a long time. But in watching your videos, I see not too much wrist, at least in the beginner and intermediate sections. The wrist seems pretty immobile.

Hi Don,

Initially you can keep your wrist relaxed but you don't need to move it through a bigger range of motion.

As your strokes improve and your control improves you can start to utilise the wrist through a bigger range of motion to add spin and speed to your strokes.
