    I guess Coach Chan hasn't gotten around to teaching his student's effective smash returns yet....

    Different teams will have their own strategies for rotation when they are in the reverse positions. But this also requires that you communicate with your partner both on and off the court, to discuss scenarios and how you both could respond to different situations. It's something that will take time to develop.

    well.
    probably said before. but there are more ways to stay on the offense.
    you say teh oppeonentt crawl to teh net when he's in the back. ask him if he can do an attacking-clear.

    maybe if he plays his drops more deceptively and fast.

    if he smashes, he shoudl aim for a steep/tight-smash not a hulk-hogan-don't-even-aim-smash..

    Smashing is the fastest way to win points in badminton but its not the only way.
    Having a strong smash would be ideal as you can pressure your opponent hard but you will also have to think about defence as well.

    Playing against opponents who have a stronger smash than you aint good and you will have to rely on quick sharp defensive returns and net kills to win (may not be often though).

    In doubles (not mixed) both partners would have to be an 'all rounder' basically and no person would be the offender and defender as if they push the defender at the back he aint gonna have great offence and mostly the offender aint got soft touches when he's at the net.

    Most importantly you have to know when to move into the correct position and having good footwork is a must. If your communication is good and knowing where to be at the right time if also good then it takes a lot to beat you.

    you dont need a strong smash to win.

    imo, yeah you both need a strong smash.


    ex) when your serving, you serve at T, your partner usually at the back, when he serves hes at the T and your at the back. It would take too much time and stamina to keep switching positions after every serve. If you both had a strong smash you would have extra stamina and would have less on your mind so you could have more of an advantage and could focus more on the game rather then thinking about switching and running around after a serve, also during the transcition they could hit a drop which would probly put the person in the front that wants to switch to back staying there while the back person is.. well my fingers are tired so you can probly imagine what would happan.

    Strong smashes come in useful only if you force your opponents to lift, or return shots high that are short of a good length. Look at the Indonesian Badminton Open men's doubles final-a match dominated by fighting for control of the net to force your opponents into playing high shots.
