Hello I would like to ask you these questions : Men double net play : 1 : I want to make a straight net shot. The opponent is in a standard front player position. What should be the trajectory of the net shot ? As flat as possible and falling quite away from the net, or as close to the net as possible AND low enough not to get kill ? 2 : Let’s say the straight net shot is played to the far side of the court. Where should I replace myself as the front player ? How much forward ? (after the service line, on the service line, before the service line…). How much on the side ? (In the middle of the court, slightly on the side of the shuttle, or in front of the shuttle ?) 3 : After I do a short service, the receiver often does a slightly upward drive or push to a side. I’m on the service line in the middle with the racket up, but I can’t intercept these shots. Some people advised me to “gamble” a random side to intercept, instead of staying in the middle. What do you think ? General technique 4 : I read some articles about changing grip length, like this one : http://www.badmintonbible.com/articles/grips-guide/grip-adjustments/grip-length.php At this moment, I use the same grip length for all shots (quite a long grip, but far from the maximum). Is changing grip length an essential skill to learn, or is it unimportant? (For men double). 5 : I also read some articles about “fingers power”. It seems very important for a lot of strokes (net kills, drives, backhand clear, deceptive shots…). To use fingers power well, do you only need to learn the technique right, or do you absolutely need to muscle/train your fingers ? Thank you for your answers.
