    Hi Pugsley,

    Footwork is most important for Single Player. Must do the footwork training and shadow badminton.

    Regards,

    Yadi

    well all i can say about this is to get a coach to tell you how to do the correct footwork pattern then go away and practise at home practise it during social games and if you have 1-1 coaching spend 10-15mins ironing out any kinks with and just grooving it inot your game

    remember nothing happens over night with badminton so you must be prepared to practise, practise, practise

    Try going to 6 different parts on the court. e.g 2 front corners, 2 sides and 2 back corners, using correct footwork. which is a kind of side step, always leading with your right foot ( if right handed), with your toes pointing toward what ever direction your going except when at the back. thats just a basic guide, google it for more detail.

    aside from doing on court training, you can also try skipping rope, my father in-law adviced me that, after a month, i realized i'm able to go move faster with the right steps.

    Hi baihaki as!

    where in jakarta do you play? i went there to visit my wife for 6 months and i played in kebon jeruk, jakarta barat. I also want to ask which brand is better in terms of quality HART or ASTEC, i have been looking for astec magic power 2 or 3 but no luck still, i settled for a Hart infinite nanoflex 81, is it good? can it handle 28lbs.

    The Astec 850 can handle 31lbs. no problem. I strung it at 27/30 and it didn't even break a sweat.

    yeah..only way to improve footwork mate is by doing it...
    but, if you wanna get fast, make it as close as you can to game situation, e.g. some times move back slower, do a smashing action then move very quickly to the front, just so it represents rallies, and what you would expect in a game situation
