I play badminton once a week for two hours. It is at my college with 18 students, and 3 courts. This leaves me with much time thinking about every game I play and mistakes I make, as well as techniques. When I'm playing against other novices (such as myself) it seems as though shot placement is much much more important than any sort of power. Since we are all novices, my question/ thought is, do you think that hitting the shuttle towards their backhand side most of the time will induce a weak return and then allow me to get the point? This is my logic because it seems as though they will have a hard time doing any sort of offensive shot from their backhand side What do you think?
