    So is there a concise way of saying overhead forehand stroke in the backhand corner?

    ..as far as i can see and understand the terms and definitions given (Australian or non-Australian based), they are pretty much similar and pretty much "correct"..:cool:

    Is there a concise way of saying overhead forehand stroke in the backhand corner?

    .
    If we are talking about a stroke, we talk about how it is executed.

    The 3 Overhead Strokes are the;
    * Overhead Clear
    * Overhead Dropshot
    * Overhead Smash

    However, Overhead Strokes can be performed with Forehand or Backhand, therefore we have 6 strokes, namely;
    * Overhead Forehand Clear
    * Overhead Forehand Dropshot
    * Overhead Forehand Smash
    * Overhead Backhand Clear
    * Overhead Backhand Dropshot
    * Overhead Backhand Smash

    We don't talk about from where it is executed. Therefore, from high above our Backhand corner, we can do all the 6 strokes named above.

    Some countries use different terms; so far we have found;
    * Dribble (from India)
    * Floating Base (from Denmark)

    I have also noticed that, while doing some corner strokes drill, my coach asked one of the student to " DRIBBLE " , and not to just reach the shuttlecock at a low point near the net to put it over. So I guess, it also means to take the shuttle at a high point near the net tape.

    And somewhere I have come across the word " Hairpin Netshot ",
    which basically means the shuttlecock is taken at a low point near the net, and it falls over to the opponents court making a trajectory similar to that of a hairpin. Like an up-side down 'U'.

    Round-the-Head Forehand Clear

    .
    OK, we shall add in "Round-the-Head Forehand Clear".

    * Round-the-Head Forehand Clear = A stroke striking the shuttlecock high above our head on the backhand side using a forehand grip.
    * Kill = Hitting the shuttlecock in a downward direction to opponent's court with maximum power hoping to finish a rally.
    * Overhead Backhand Stroke = A stroke striking the shuttlecock high above our head on the backhand side using a backhand grip.
    * Overhead Forehand Stroke = A stroke striking the shuttlecock high above our head with a forehand grip.
    * Overhead Stroke = A stroke striking the shuttlecock high above our head.
    * Wood Shot = When the shuttlecock is struck by the frame of the racket-head. "Frame Shot" is now gradually replacing this term.
    * Carry = A scooping action on a shuttlecock during a stroke production. Some Australians call it a "Scoop".
    * Sliced Smash = A smash by hitting at the side of the shuttlecock (to cause the feathers to rotate); causing it to dip down quicker.
    * Cut = Slice; A shot made when we hit the side of the cork of the shuttlecock.
    * Boleh = "Yes, we can" in Malaysian. It is yelled/cheered to players to encourage them to play better.
    * Slice = A shot made when we hit the side of the cork of the shuttlecock. Slice Smash and Slice Dropshot are most common.
    * Block = A shot hit by a racket-head swung with little or no movement at all. A Block Return of a Smash is most common.
    * Push = A shot hit by a racket-head swung at constant velocity. A Doubles Low Service can be performed with a Push.
    * XD Push Shot = Pushing the shuttlecock to the Side Tram Lines; directing it to fall between the front and the back players.
    * Jia You = "Add Fuel" in Chinese (Mandarin). It is yelled/cheered to players to become stronger physically and mentally.
    * Drive Return of Smash = A shot driven back quickly before our opponent is ready to intercept or to return it.
    * Drive Service = A Service that is hit hard and fast, hoping to pass past a receiver before he/she is ready to intercept it.
    * Deception = To fool and/or to wrong foot our opponent. Make him/her think we are executing this shot when we are playing another shot.
    * Base Position = (For Singles Games) is the middle position between the net and the back line, and the middle position between the side lines.
    * Defensive Clear = An overhead or underarm Clear executed to our opponent's Back Tram Lines; allowing us more time to return to our base position.
    * Punch Clear = An overhead Clear executed to just clear over the highest reach that can be met by our opponent.
    * Spinning Netplay = A shot played near the net to our opponent's Fore Court, creating the shuttlecock to spin (rotating) over the net.
    * Tumble = A shot played near the net to the our opponent's Fore Court, creating the shuttlecock to somersault once or more times over the net.
    * Dropshot = A shot played from our overhead position to the Fore Court of our opponent's court.
    * Dribble = Any shot played from ones' own forecourt to the opponents' forecourt with the shuttle passing in close proximity to the net tape.
    * Lift = A Clear which is played from an underarm stroke.
    * Clear = Any shot played high (higher than the racket head held high) to our opponent.

    Bounce

    .
    Yes, I have come across the the term "Hairpin Netshot" too.

    BTW, it is always best to take the shuttlecock high (near the net white tape) for a Dribble. I have actually coined the term "Bounce" for my trainees. It is to remind them that;

    * If our strings meet the shuttlecock without any movement towards it (in other words, just letting the shuttlecock bouncing back), there should be a 20cm (approximately) high rebound from our strings.

    * If our 'Bounce' is performed 10cm below the net tape, there should be a 10cm clearance above the net, for the shuttlecock to cross over the net.

    * As we get better with our 'Bounce', we can meet the shuttlecock 15cm below the net tape, therefore giving 5cm clearance above the net, for the shuttlecock to cross over the net.

    Therefore, we shall add in "Bounce".

    * Bounce = A Dribble when we meet the shuttlecock 10cm below the net tape.
    * Round-the-Head Forehand Clear = A stroke striking the shuttlecock high above our head on the backhand side using a forehand grip.
    * Kill = Hitting the shuttlecock in a downward direction to opponent's court with maximum power hoping to finish a rally.
    * Overhead Backhand Stroke = A stroke striking the shuttlecock high above our head on the backhand side using a backhand grip.
    * Overhead Forehand Stroke = A stroke striking the shuttlecock high above our head with a forehand grip.
    * Overhead Stroke = A stroke striking the shuttlecock high above our head.
    * Wood Shot = When the shuttlecock is struck by the frame of the racket-head. "Frame Shot" is now gradually replacing this term.
    * Carry = A scooping action on a shuttlecock during a stroke production. Some Australians call it a "Scoop".
    * Sliced Smash = A smash by hitting at the side of the shuttlecock (to cause the feathers to rotate); causing it to dip down quicker.
    * Cut = Slice; A shot made when we hit the side of the cork of the shuttlecock.
    * Boleh = "Yes, we can" in Malaysian. It is yelled/cheered to players to encourage them to play better.
    * Slice = A shot made when we hit the side of the cork of the shuttlecock. Slice Smash and Slice Dropshot are most common.

    ..i've personally never heard or noticed those, but those are just 2 different terms out of how many commonly used terms??..as for their definitions, they're fine (whatever)..
    For "Dribble", the definition seems similar to a hairpin shot..
    Btw, i don't see "Floating Base" in the list..is it still under consideration???..

    It might be better to change it to "Around-the-head shot" as you can play not only a clear but a smash or drop as well.

    That was my immediate thought too.

    However, occasionally you have time to reach an ideal hitting position in your backhand corner. In this case, the action is no longer round-the-head (you will hit a "normal" forehand with the shuttle directly above the racket shoulder).

    I can't think of any concise terminology to describe this situation. Fortunately for us taxonomists, it rarely happens. ;)
