The stroke of a ball with a racket or paddle, in which head of the racket starts from the side of the body opposite to that of the arm in which the racket is held, and proceeds forward to meet the ball. Contrasted with forehand.
To throw the disc from the left side of the body for right handed players (or from the right for left handed players). The motion is similar in some respects to the backhand in tennis. (Like the 'standard' throw that non-Ultimate players may be used to).
The stroke that is used to return balls hit on the left side of a right-handed player and right side of a left-handed player. It can be hit with one or two hands. Note: Athletes should learn to hit a proper backhand not a right-handed forehand and a left-handed one.
Your typical badminton player has, besides a left hand and a right hand, a backhand and a forehand as well. With righthanded players the backhand is on the lefthand side and with lefthanded players vice versa (with one-armed players the backhand is on the stump side by definition). Backhand is very difficult.
The backhand in tennis is a stroke hit by swinging the racquet away from one's body in the direction of where the player wants the ball to go. For a right-handed player, a backhand begins on the left side of his body, continues across his body as contact is made with the ball, and ends on the right side of his body. It can be either a one-handed or a two-handed stroke.
