    That explanation is both confusing and confused.
    • The "carrying" rule has not been taken out, nor is it redundant.
    • There is no rule forbidding double hits. A double hit is legal provided that both hits are part of the same stroke motion.
    • The relevant rule, which was introduced in order to prevent the S-serve, is that "the server's racket shall initially hit the base of the shuttle".

    The correct interpretation of this law is as follows: you must not hit the feathers first; you must not hit the feathers and base together. You may, however, hit the feathers AFTER the base.

    Of course, this would be a double hit, but we now know that those are legal, don't we? :rolleyes:

    during normal serving, the cork of the shuttle is closest to the ground correct?
    now turn the shuttle over, so that the tips of the feather is closest to the ground, slice the feathers only when u serve and u should get a S-serve

    Its not as easy as hitting the feather first. You have to hold the cork pointing upwards and slice the feather from left to right and follow through forward. Your slice must be good too and your shuttle must be in good condition. I've had the pleasure of watching Zhang Ailing and Chen Changjie demonstrating it for me :D Its not easy, even they had to do it several times to show us a good one since it has been a long time since they used it.

    You don't have to wait for it to almost reach the ground to hit it back like Bighook says though, but it's pretty darn hard or even impossible to play a good netshot. Even to lift it you must have good eyes and contact the shuttle at the right angle otherwise it might fly out.

    I have just used S-serve in all my games at a amateur tournament of HCMC(VietNam) and was allowed by referees!I was the winner in the final game,of course, not perfectly depend on the S-serve.The leader of Vietnamese Badminton Referee saw my serves and said that, not international tournament,no problem!

    I assume they used the backhand serve. If they agree, ask them to use the forehand one. You'll be amazed how much 'crazier' the forehand serve is - and much much harder to attack. Then my coach demonstrated both ways, I could receive the backhand one with difficulty. It was just impossible trying to return the forehand one.

    Indeed the spinning serve could be performed on any type of shuttle - but are the results the same?

    Serve around the side of the net!

    Hi Guys!

    This is not the Sidek-serve in full affect....(I know how to do that one as well)

    But it gives you an idea of how the "s"-serve works.

    Watch it with both backhand and forehand. It´s important to hold the shuttle like I do and hit it the same way, otherwise, it will not fly in the supposed direction.........It´s the first two tricks of this video on youtube :)

    Kind Regards

    Oh, my friend Brian Tjoa's wife does that. She has some orthodonitic (good) problem so she has an extra bone in her wrist. It helps her to slice the cork and make the brid curve. She just tosses it and slices with her backhand. THIS IS EXTREMELY ANNOYING

    I know the "S" serve is illegal now, but I am wondering was it legal at some point? If not, then what is the point of it?

    Thanks for the video JR. In the video do you hit the feathers first or are you hitting both feather and cork together or just slicing the cork? Do you use this serve in the tournaments ;)
