    Always over the net when he or she is watching regardless. Don't do the tray thing, if he can't catch the shuttle in the air, he shouldn't be playing.

    OMG, all players start playing Badminton as new players.

    It's common to find most new players can't catch the shuttlecock in the air.

    Don't tell me that they shouldn't be playing Badminton?

    They cant catch the shuttles because u r lousy in passing back. Just kidding........I am lucky tht I don play with pure beginners( not tht I undermine them, but thts one of the reasons my regular playing group is formed). Time is very restricted nowadays, when I play I want to get something out of it, don't wish to finish a game in 5 minutes. Know what I mean?

    I pass the shuttle over the net to the server (slow pace of course); most people at my club do this.
    But one person always just pushes the shuttle under the net (very unkindly), even after winning the point shoving it to the partner, instead of giving it nicely... I totally hate that!!!

    Usually im very angry after losing a point and then i tend to walk around with the shuttle in my hand for a while. when opponent starts looking at me or talking to me, i accept i must pass the shuttle so then i hit it as long as i can in the direction of the servive box where opponent NOT have to serve next, so that he must walk a longer distance to pick it up. gives me more time to calm down and think positive again.

    Today I played with a dude who insisted on handing it to me, or serving it tray-like on his racket. After a while I started doing the same lol.

    Anyway, was I being rude or what?
    If I'm close to the net, I'll flick it under. From further away, just hit it over.

    If the opponents have just done a particularly jammy shot... I aim for the bin and shout "FETCH!"

    The most annoying thing for me:

    opponents play shot into net => shuttle lands on floor near the net. The lady *swipes* at the shuttle to flick it near our tee, but swipes at the FEATHERS. I have only ever seen ladies do this! Talk about killing shuttles...

    opponents:
    i generally hit/shove the shuttle in a friendly manner so that the opponent can easily catch it (with his hand or racket). that's 99% of all occasions.
    in very very rare occasions (when the opponent starts being bitchy or playing mental games) i sometimes just push the shuttle under the net so that he has to pick it up.

    partners:
    usually i use this "racket as a basket" option to give my doubles-partner the shuttle. or just hand it to him/her while having a short tactical conversation.

    I think as long as your not bashing it away or flicking it only three inches from the ground under the net(see the pro's do this all the time), then all is good.
    I suppose logically the less the shuttle is touched by sweaty hands the better so flicking it back, so opponent has to pick it up with racket is best. And I suppose ultimate ettiquette always give the shuttle to your partner directly and for opponent always scoop shuttle up the softly hit it over the net to them.
    One thing i have seen change is winner of point never gets shuttle even if they are next to it at the net and opponent at back court. I can remember it used to be whoever closest basically, strangely this ettiquette seems to flip the higher the standard you get.

    yeah that's quite common to let the opponent give you the shuttle after he hit it in the net and NOT take it yourself, even if you're really next to the net and could easily get it.

    if the opponent starts to do such things, i usually start just pushing the shuttle 30cm under the net to his side of the court, then he can get it there. this belongs to the department "mental games" and is not part of etiquette...;-)

    isn't it just who ever side it's on? someone might win because opponent hit it out. the winner doesn't expect the opponent to go around the net and pick it up for them. so when you win and the opponent is back court the opponent doesn't expect you to reach under the net.

    I was trying to point out a flip in etiquette. Take this specific, easy to understand example. I hit a Drop shot from the back court and it hits the net and my opponent was pressuring the net so is standing there. Excepted etiquette in pro badminton is for opponent to walk away from the shuttle whilst I walk the length of the court and pass the shuttle to him. I do not believe this is acceptable etiquette out with pro badminton. Traditionally and socially the guy at the net should just scoop the shuttle up and take it with him.

    don't want to be a grammar nazi, but in this case it does make a difference as it would mean the opposite. i think you're saying and i agree with that in pro badminton it is accepted behaviour to leave the loser to pick up the net shuttle even if they are further away. but in casual/social games you should just scoop it up/flick it back if you're closer, even if you have to reach under the net a bit.

    Hmmm.... mustard and relish.... you'd make a good burgher! just make sure you don't get into a pretty pickle!

    You run over and get the tray out of your badminton bag that you should always have, and present the shuttle to your partner with it.
