    The best "technique" that I have learned is this: don't just play games, but practice! Do specific practices for particular shots and techniques, and you will learn much more than in a complex game situation.

    Just like posting topics on forums really: don't ask a totally open-ended question (like, oh I don't know, maybe "Any good techniques?"), but post a specific question. You are more likely to get a response, and generate an interesting debate.

    I remember reading on here someone saying something along the lines of "hit the shuttle with your feet". Ok so it's not a technique tip but it always makes me think about my footwork and placement which I find helps a lot.

    A general answer for a general question:)

    Keep shots simple, consistent and high quality.

    One of the most important things I know about shots: :)

    If you are hitting short, make it really short.
    If you are hitting long, make it long enough.

    Never hit something that is like mid-court and high!

    My good technique is in my serves. I can place the shuttle anywhere on the court during the serves at will.

    But then as all the other posters here have said, PRACITCE!!! ;) and go with simple shots first then move on.

    in some cases, this is a very good thing to keep in mind. however, there are times when you want to place shots midcourt or near the front service line area for strategic purposes - such shots include fast cuts and slices and half smashes, etc.

    if your going to hit it short --> make it really short
    if your going to hit it long --> make it tight to the back

    Never hit a shot into the middle of the court for no reason.

    Always try and hit the shuttle whever your opponent is not

    And finally find his weakness as soon as possible.

    Which, for the average player, almost always includes the backhand.

    yes especially a shot where he/she must play a backhand clear:D , also lunging for tough drops on a backhand is not the easiest thing either.

    One guy that I play against has this really bizare serving motion that he goes through. He stands on his tip toes and leans towards the center of the court (doubles) but his feet arent moving so it's legal. very bizare and very difficult to return.

    The best technique is always keep it in ???

    I think the best technique to learn in badminton is your ability to learn new shots and footworks correctly. but first, you must know your weakness so study your own game first...

    For shots, there is nothing works better than watching good players. After all, we all learn by watching at the beginning.

    For footworks, your best coach will be your VCR... or DVD Player. Hit that replay or slow motion button on your remote repeatedly whenever you see your favorite world class player move to certain corners. heheh.. go to the back yard and copy it. Its that simple... :)

    PS. VCR will never yell at you.

    I think one of the best techiques that cannot be taught is how to anticpate. This only comes from playing zillions of games, but being able to read your opp and know what shot he is going to hit b4 he hits it is going to give u a serious advantage

    Anticipation can be a simple technique if you simply know your own shots and your opponents abilities.

    For example, if you hit a nice shot to your opponents back hand corner, and you know he doesnt have a back hand clear... well you can anticipate a few shots..

    1. weak back hand clear. result is a pop up.
    2. back hand drop to the net
    3. desperate overhead, which results a pop up.

    Samething applies to footwork,, if you know your opponent doesnt move well, a well placed drop shot usually results in a weak pop up or desperate net drop.. or if you smash one side and you can expect a weak return or block on that same side of the court.

    On the other hand, if you pop the bird up to the middle near the baseline, you wont be able to anticipate much of any shot except ruling out a smash since most singles players dont smash from the baseline. Once again, if you know your opponent, you might be able to guess his favorite shot in that situation.

    The key is to place your shots so your opponent has the least options on the returns thus saving a ton of energy by not covering the entire court.
