BADMINTON Returning Clearing This can be thought of as a warm-up
Two players go on opposite sides of the court
To start, put the shuttle over the net in an underhand fashion
The player on the opposite side returns it in an overhand way
Contact should be made high and with a slight upwards angle to make the shuttle gain height
The goal of this warm-up is to practice clearing so the shuttle needs to go high and deep
This drill can count as a warm-up, practice drill, and beginner's practice to help learn how to hit the shuttle
Players continue to rally the shuttle back and forth until they are warm or drill is over http://www.badminton-information.com/badminton_serve.html
http://www.phytkidz.com/pdf/8-9%20badminton/Badminton%20Drills.pdf Sources Use this badminton serve when you want your opponent to lift the shuttle. It is commonly used during doubles, but you can use it during singles too if your opponent's attack is too strong. You can use either forehand or backhand to play this serve.

Get in a comfortable serving position
Lead with your least dominant leg and place your racket leg behind.
Bring your racket below your waist and adopt your backhand grip as stated previously
Hold the shuttle by the feathers and bring it closer to the racket instead of dropping it in front.
Hit the shuttle at a slightly higher point than your flick serve
"Push" instead of "hit" the shuttle with the racket face and try to make the shuttle go only slightly over the net.

If you normally use high serve during singles, use the low serve occasionally. You might be able to trick your opponent Drill #3 (Low Serve) This serve can help deceive an opponent right away by making him/her think you will serve short, but in fact, you will serve it deeper. Drill #2 (Flick) Use this badminton serve during singles play to move your opponent as far back in court as possible
Played with a forehand underarm action
Lead with your opposite leg (left if right handed...) and place your other leg behind
Bring your racket back to almost your shoulder level then swing it forward following the rhythm of the stroke
Hold the shuttle and let it drop slightly in front of you
Hit it with the flat face of your racket and follow through until your racket reaches the other side of your head Drill #1(High Serve) High Serve - used in singles only.
Low Serve - used in both singles and doubles.
Flick serve - used in doubles. There are 3 basic serves: Racket has to be below waist
Serve from behind service line on right side of court (right if the score is even, left if odd)
Serve diagonally to the other side Serving Serving Drills Rules of serves Backhand Clearing can be used defensively to create time to get back into position. This technique sends the shuttle high and deep into the opposite court. Backhand Drop shots Sometimes, the shuttle may come to you on the wrong side of your body, and you will have to use the other side of the racket, this is known as the backhand. The Drill: this can be done with a partner to hit the shuttle back at you so you can practice your backhand
To hit a backhand shot, grip your racket with your thumb pointing

To perform a backhand, use a flick of the wrist to hit the shuttle
Follow through until the racket goes back to its forehand position Common Mistakes: Do not hit the shuttle as you would hit a tennis backhand, this will take away all the power of your shot
Instead, focus on the wrist action
Only use a backhand shot if you have to as they are more difficult to achieve Common Mistakes Hitting the shuttle too low
Make sure you contact the shuttle at an angle
Not hitting the shuttle far enough
Hit the shuttle using the wrist more than the arm, you will get more power this way A drop shot is a more complicated way of returning the shuttle. The object of this shot is to make the opponent think you are clearing but in fact, you are hitting the shuttle short. This drill practices the forehand drop shot, it can be done using a partner on the other side of the court to return the drop shots to you:

Your partner will serve you the shuttle and you will return it as a drop shot
Grip the racket with your thumb around the handle
Direct your non-racket shoulder towards the net
Hit the shuttle at at high point and tap it
This will cause the shuttle to land close to the net and hopefully trick your opponent during a game
Your partner will hit the shuttle back at you and you will hit it back as a drop shot and so on... Common Mistakes The shuttle goes too far
You are not supposed to hit a drop shot like a smash, a light tap is OK
The shuttle doesn't cross the net
Even though you must hit the shuttle lightly, some power is needed
Following through helps add the necessary power to get the shuttle over Quickness Another skill to have in badminton is quickness, this can also help when returning an opponent's shot (ex: a low drop shot in front of the net) to get where you want to go quickly. A drill to improve physical quickness on the court is a fitness exercise.
Get in groups of 2 or 3 people
Place pylons on the 4 corners of one side of the court (In a square)
The object of the drill is to sprint to each cone, and when the square is done, go in an "X" shape
Face the same direction all the time
When you get back to the start the next person goes
This goes on repeatedly 2 or 3 times
This drill can be incorporated in a warm up or stand-alone increase speed 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Common Mistakes You are not gaining speed
This drill is not instantaneous and you need to work hard and Sprint To achieve this serve, use your backhand
Get your non-lead leg forward and bend it a little
Hold the shuttle in front of you and drop the shuttle in front of you
With your racket, follow through with a snap to flick it over the other player
enough distance so that he cannot smash it back at you
This drill can be done alone with a net or with someone else to be able to judge height and distance
When serving with an odd number you must stand on the odd side of the court, and when serving an even number you must stand on the even side .
You cannot step on any of the lines when serving.
You cannot lift or drag your feet while serving.
You cannot step into your serve.
You cannot throw the shuttle into the air, you must drop it.
You must contact the shuttle below waist level.
You must contact the shuttle below the level of your wrist (on your racket hand).
You must contact the shuttle in one smooth forward motion, you cannot stop the swing, or have a double motion. General Serving Mistakes
(that should be avoided) Professional Smash Baseline Smash Drill The players will be in partners on opposite sides of the net from each other. The players with the shuttle will serve. Once they do that they must sprint and touch the baseline at the back of the court and then run up to the shuttle and perform an overhead smash into a target* on the opposite side of the net. The partner will hit the shuttle high to the middle of the court to the player so that they can successfully smash the shuttle. Do this drill 5- 10 times each and then trade roles.
Specific Teaching Cues- To give each other high, accurate volleys so that the smasher can do their best to accurately hit the specific target on the court.
Common Mistakes- Not running the full distance to the baseline and trying to cheat to get back to smash the shuttle faster. Also players do not get their body in the proper position to smash the shuttle and also try to hit the shuttle as hard as they can rather than trying to hit the target accurately.
How to over come these mistakes!- By running the full distance to the baseline and then turning around running up to smash the shuttle. And getting you body the proper position to accurately hit the target.
*: The target can be chosen by the server or smasher, but make sure both people know in order to see if you succeeded. Baseline Smash Drill 2v1 Smash and Net- It is played on a singles court, on one side of the net there are two players and they have to assume a front back position and play as they would in a doubles match. The other person will start the drill by serving it to the two players on the opposite side of the court. One of the two players will then clear the shuttle to the back of the court forcing the one player to smash it back. When it is returned the one player will send a drop shot back over forcing one of the two players to clear it again. This will continue on until the shuttle hits the ground. This drill is great for improving fitness, speed around the court, footwork and shot accuracy.
Specific Teaching Cues- To get the shuttle high for the player to smash the shuttle properly and the important of returning the smash so the drill and continue smoothly without having to stop after every shot.
Common Mistakes- Not clearing the shuttle behind the other person so they are forced to position themselves properly for a smash. The biggest one is not being able to keep the game going smoothly.
How to over come these mistakes!- Remember the shot the player has to do with his position on the court. This helps to predict what the other player will do 2v1 Smashing Drill Multiple shuttle drill- A feeder plays the shuttles into different areas of your court. The player will then use their forehand or backhand to smash the shuttle. They must return to their base position after each shot. This badminton drill is meant to improve a players speed and accuracy.
Specific Teaching Cues- To position their body in a way that they can smash the shuttle down, hard and accurate.
Common Mistakes- They have to remember that just getting to the shuttles is not enough. You have to hit good shots over the g
How to overcome these mistakes!- By volleying the shuttle hard to a specific position you want to and not trying to kill it and it going out of bounds. Multiple Shuttle Drill Drills to help with smashing
