It's time to say a big "HI!" to all the badminton strokes. Its also time to know the purpose of each stroke (which means execution of a technique) and when to use them during the game.
In this page I only explain briefing what they are about, we will cover them in detail over the next few pages! So keep going yeah!
What i did was i split this simple and digestible lessons into seven different parts listed below!
- Net Play
- Mid Court
- Drop Shot
- Transitional shots
Okay so for service, there is three kinds, the high serve(aka long serve), low serve(short serve) and also the flick serve.
Each have their own advantage and disadvantage to suit different kinds of play.
In the net play i will explain the use of the net shot, the cross net, lifting, flick shot and net kill.
There is a lot of variations you can play in the front to move your opponent where you want them to go, for example, the net shot forces the opponent to the front.
mid court court is another important aspect of the game, it could mean
changing from attacking to defending, or even better, counter attacking
your opponent and gain a point, thus it is extremely important to master
the mid court.
example when playing a fast game of doubles, a lot of times your mid
court skills are tested, such as the side drives, your defense as well
as side smashes.
One of the all time favorite badminton stroke of many! It is nice to watch, feel and perform a smash.
However if a smash is not used correctly, it can be
very energy consuming and demoralizing when your opponent keeps saving your smash.
There are many variations of smash, and i am showing you some of the different types of smash. To fully use smash you have understand it.
The drop is necessary to make your opponent move and bend forward, leaving him vulnerable to smashes and lob shots.
There are many variations of the drop shot such as the slice drop shot, the soft and hard drop shot, each with purpose.
Lobbing is commonly used to slow down the game at the lower levels, but as you get better, lobbing can be used as a form of attack, i call this the ‘ attacking lob’.
It forces your opponent into a very difficult position, making him lose both the feel of the shuttle and his footwork.
Transitional shots are a very important part of badminton strokes to learn and know about!
As the term implies, it is used to transit from defensive play to offensive from the baseline, when being attacked by your opponent!
( If not most likely you’ll always be under attack if your opponent always pins you at the baseline area!)
