Painful Grasp: Mild pain or discomfort when grasping things can be due to a variety of reasons. The muscles into your hand called intrinsics could be tight.

If there is no visible abnormality try tylenol (acetaminophen) and if the pain does not go away in a couple of days or gets worse, see your doctor.
Tendonitis: Most commonly the result of tendonitis. Recommend stretching well prior to playing, icing after playing and using anti-inflammatories. Also have someone evaluate your positioning when playing as this can worsen the problem
Yes: Make sure you're learning proper technique and take a class. Also make sure the racquet fits you properly.
At times pain in one: Hand that is intense can make the other hand feel pain too. One theory is that the [pain pathways in the spinal cord that supplies one side are close to those on the other side of the spinal to the other hand. Other times just using the normal side more than usual can bring on some discomfort.
Carpal tunnel: Many different things can cause the symptoms you are having but the most common is carpal tunnel syndrome. In this syndrome the median nerve is pinched at the wrist. It can be made better by using a canvas wrist brace and small doses of ibuprofen or Naprosyn (naproxen). I If this does not improve the symptoms have a further evaluation in person. It is often associated with repetitive movements also.
Carpal tunnel?: You may possibly having carpal tunnel which is quite common in folks using their hands repetitively such as typing etc...Over-use arthritis can also be causing symptoms. I would recommend seeing your doc for an evaluation to determine a best solution for your. Try some motrin/aleve, vitamin b6, and wrist splint in the meantime. Good luck.
