The Oncourt Offcourt Backhand Fixer helps players of all level fix the common problem with backhand strokes. Too many players incorrectly hit one-handed backhand strokes with an isolated arm motion as a one-armed shot and more or less poke at the ball with a tense swing. Instead of using both hands in concert, they look like what some teaching pros call a one-armed bandit, similar to the slot machines in Las Vegas. Instead, the non-racquet hand must be actively involved. For a right-handed player, the left or non-racquet hand sets the racquet in position. At this stage, whether it be for a topspin one-handed backhand, a slice backhand groundstroke, or a one-handed backhand volley, the right or dominant hand is relaxed on the grip. This is when the velcro on the Backhand Fixer remains in place around both wrists.

Then, at the same time as the forward motion of the racquet, the dominant hand takes over, creating a quick and explosive tug of war with the other hand. Just before contact, the racquet hand takes over fully and the force of losing the tug of war sends the non-racquet hand in the opposite direction. When used correctly, the Backhand Fixer exaggerates the feel of that tug of war since, at the explosive point when the racquet hand wins the battle, the Velcro on the Backhand Fixer pulls apart.

The Oncourt Offcourt Backhand Fixer can help all levels of players. It guides beginners to feel the correct biomechanics right from the start. It helps intermediate players who are looking to gain a rapid feel or kinesthetic awareness of the correct swing. And it will also reinforce the right technique for advanced players. Instructions are included with the Backhand Fixer.
