    If you're looking for an ordered list so you can prioritize your time, the order would depend on overall skill level and an individual's strengths and weaknesses. You are vulnerable as long as you have any kind of weakness.

    My personal order?

    1. Everything
    2. See #1
    3. See #2

    Of course everything is useful, that's not what he was after. That's a pretty pointless answer to be honest.

    My personal opinion would be:
    Technique
    Footwork/Hitting high and early
    Power
    Position
    Flat shots
    Deception

    footwork –> because having this will allow you to hit high and early aswell as let you be in the proper position for either singles or doubles.

    technique –> this will allow you to hit thoseflatshots, have power,have deception, etc.

    i place footwork firstbecause ifyou can't get to the shuttle doesn't matter how good your technique is you can't hit a adopt off of it. likewise if you constantly late them you are being put under pressure and are unable to take the shuttle high and early to play effectiveshots and put pressure on your opponent.

    but all that is just my opinion.

    yo!

    I think footwork is probably a bigger deal in singles than in doubles. Does stance fall under footwork too?

    I would rate positioning very high. It's surprising to find some club players who are still somewhat unaware of where to stand during a doubles game, either standing too close to the net, or running all over the place.

    just fixing this alone ups your skill level a few notches.

    I would say footwork is paramount in both. In doubles you need quick recovery and short distances in very short time. Singles is about covering large distances effectively. Different, but buth are paramount foundations for their respective disciplines. just imo.

    Basics first!
    But what are the basics?
    Is it any good if you are able to to reach the shuttle with "good footwork", yet unable to execute a good shot to where you want it to be?

    given the OP has not given a definition of what is important, for what end and means --- it's not intuitive to rank the mentioned list of "things". if anybody is foolish enough to focus on a top three list to get a maximum out of his training by focusing on the most important aspects, based on reading stuff here, well ...

    There are concepts of health and well-being, I think however these are most important and overriding everything specific to the sport.

    Remember 80% of the aspects of badminton can be learned with an effort of 20%, like 20 minutes of 100 minutes training, weekly. The remaining 20% of skill to be learned requires the excellence of the remaining 80 minutes, weekly.

    1)footwork
    2)technique
    3)position
    4)hitting high and early
    5)flat shots
    6)power
    7)deception

    in order to have any item on my list, you must have all the things before it right? (so to have deception, you need to be able to do EVERYTHING ELSE first)

    and tadashi, the 80-20 rule can apply to anything in life, not just badminton :D

    ooh, let's not forget the concept of constructing points and "set plays"

    I think the first of all would be mindset (singles or doubles mindset)? without mindset you will play like chicks losing their mother

    and then, as Gundamzaku said, footwork will lead to good position (depending on one's mind though, if they don't have the mindset then it will not gonna help) which also lead to hitting high and early.
    without good footwork, even with good technique, you will not gonna hit a good shot since you are out of the place (reaching shuttle too late for example)
    I think footwork in doubles is less noticeable but you still need to apply basic footwork to make it happens (such as making a rotation between attacking and defensive position)

    good technique will lead to easy access to power (not much power lose during a shot), which also lead to good and flat shot + will help to hitting it high

    and I think people tend to forget that we also need stamina esp in singles and in a very long doubles game (but it is still not as important as two above as the game now ends much faster than before)

    deception should be the last one since it is meaningless to do it if we don't have all of the above first. it will looks like we are a clown trying to show off where our technique is still not good, and the footwork is just out of the place

    I would say it's footwork, followed by technique and hitting high and early. All of these will lead to power, deception and position one requires...
