Training aids have been used by sport coaches to help with the development of sport-specific skills. In racket and club sports, gripping the handle is an integral skill that requires specific expertise from instructors in the given sport to ensure that an athlete can execute strokes to either prevent injury or optimise performance. However, the effectiveness of training aids in the development of sport-specific motor skills is unknown. Therefore, the objective of this review is to provide an overview of the use of training aids for skill development in adolescent athletes in racket and club sports.
