Best Answer

A backhand swing in tennis is using either one or two hands on the opposite side of your dominant hand to hit the ball.

For example, if you have a two-handed backhand and you are right handed, you would swing at the ball with two hands on your left side. Thus, your backhand swing is on your left side with two hands.
