Principle 6 states that angular motion is produced by the application of a force acting at some distance from an axis, that is, by torque. In a game of badminton, this principle is used as it involves angular movement in the body, however it does not integrate with the badminton backhand serve itself.
When you are serving the birdy in badminton it is very important to have stability. During a serve you should stand in an upright position with your chest parallel to the net. Both shoulders should be the same distance forward. After you serve you will have to quickly move to a low centre of gravity with a wide base of support to minimize reaction time to give extra time in responding to opponents shots.
We will be analyzing the backhand badminton serve.

Of the 7 principles of biomechanics, we were able to integrate this serve to 5 of them:
Principles 1, 2, 3, 4, & 6
The production of maximum force requires the use of all joints. All your force will come from your wrist and a slight step forward. The hitting action should be a gentle push moving the racket backwards and then gently forward. You should let go of the birdy at the last moment so that you will push from your wrist. When you make contact with the birdy your pushing action should continue forward and upwards to go over the net. It is important that you push the birdy instead of hitting it. You should not allow your racket to come backwards once you serve the birdy.
This principle states that the movement being carried out uses joints from the largest to smallest. As an individual is doing a badminton serve, they are beginning with their dominant shoulder, gradually putting force into their elbow and finally reaching the end that is directly touching the racket, which includes the wrist and fingers. The most force should be applied at the wrist/fingers since the larger joints only add to the momentum of the hit. This allows the birdy to travel further in the air.
It is very important that an individual serves the birdy at a specific speed in order to win. Principle 4 states that the greated teh applied impulse, the greater the increase in velocity. An individual can apply a strong impulse by increasing the distance of the racket and the birdy, swinging faster, and putting in a lot of force. Increasing the velocity of the birdy is a good technique that will minimize the opponents time to respond to the birdy (they miss).
Learning the backhand serve in badminton is one of the first serves an individual can learn. There are several different serve types (backhand, backhand long, overhead, short, etc.). Luckily, the backhand serve we analyzed is a serve you can't distinguish the difference between an expert and a novice as the serve is very simple. However, when it comes to different serves, such as the long serve, you can tell whether or not the individual is an expert or not. The following is a video of an expert teaching the backhand badminton serve.
