    True, but for defending, usually the one on the backhand side can generate more power.

    Usually supination is faster and more powerful than pronation.

    My old coach used to just give us a bird and say that one side is offense, the other is defense.
    If you were on the "offense" side and played a shot that gave up the offense, you would lose the point. This type of training helps players be more ready for match situations, where replies from your opponent are less predictable than your coach feeding you a preset pattern.

    If you still want to find patterns to drill, what I'd recommend is thinking of your own patterns, instead of asking for some. Get a whiteboard, or a piece of scrap paper, and draw a court (both sides). Draw a starting point (serve), then an arrow for where the serve should go. Draw another arrow for where the reply should go, etc.

    Doing the above will help you think about actual play (if I hit the bird here, and my opponents are there, what is the likely reply? How should I respond to this type of shot?) and help build your sense of tactics. It also allows you the flexibility of training to your own needs (I cannot cover the back well, let's design a pattern that works on back court movement).

    Doing the above requires some basic knowledge of tactics, but I think visualizing rallies this way will help you learn tactics as well.
    Extremely helpful and insightful! Thank you!

    because in the other thread of yours, we already established that you don't move to the front until you see a loose shot on your side... otherwise your partner who should be covering the front should take the loose shots.

    i suppose you haven't played against any intermediate to advance doubles players who can easily just lift it high over you if you happen to charge after your smash, especially if you're smashing from the baseline... which we know in doubles is not a very strong attacking shot to get your opponents into any much trouble...
    I agree. No, I haven't played that many 'real' intermediates and advanced doubles yet. I have only started taking lessons.

    My coach is teaching from Richmond, Canada.

    I think the purpose of the patterns wasn't so clearly established, but I think what it was supposed to help me with was to help me be able to predict shots and how to react. Your thoughts?

    3. always have a downward trajectory so that your opponents have to hit below tape level, eg. smashes, fast drops, downward drives
    4. only clear (attack type) if your opponents have come forward too much, otherwise never clear if not under pressure
    Thanks! I was going to start a thread asking for some patterns to do this one " isolate and attack the weaker partner."

    1. The one you mentioned but you also add push into it. Lets say for an example that your coach on the other side shoots one shuttle for you to smash - drive - push. However, the push doesn't always have to be included, but can be random. The thing with a smash - drive only pattern is that it's not often you will see that kind of scenario. Adding the push gives the pattern a more realistic touch to it.
    Also, this kind of pattern isn't meant to do with 100% smashes, but rather 70-80% smashes and more focus on fast recovery for the drive and push.

    2. All short 2v2. This basically means that you have two 'defenders' and two 'attackers'. The defenders are supposed to move around the attackers so they can train how to rotate their attacking positions. The attackers only use doubles drop (the difference between the singles and doubles drop is that singles it is often slow and very close to the net, while the doubles drop is more of a slice, a mix between smash and drop). When advancing forward from behind you try to play as flat as you can.
    The defenders need to be able to hit the shuttle in such way that the attackers have to rotate. Also, you can try to do it at high pace in order to simulate a real doubles game.

    3. Attack at the net. This pattern is to practice your attacking play at the net. Basically, it requires your coach, or whoever is hitting shuttles over to your side, to hit shuttles at a pretty high pace randomly over the net. The coach needs to hit the shuttle to you from underneath in a drive:ish way, as if he was defending against a push from the front court. Use the whole net area for this drill.

    4. Attack from rear. The same as above but from the back court. Basically, your coach hits shuttles out towards the back court and you attack. Preferably smash but if not possible, sliced shots or drives.

    5. Drive to stick smash. This pattern makes you move from side to side. You make a drive from one side and then leap towards the other side in order to do a stick smash.

    6. Stop on drive. This can be done on half-court. Your partner is on the other side hitting drives towards you and you answer by just gently stopping the shuttle so it goes downwards as soon as it passes the net.

    7. Third shot after serve. This is one of the most important drills I've ever come across. We all know that in doubles, the serve, the return of the serve and the third shot afterwards are the ones that will set up the rally (at least to begin with). In this pattern, you will have your partner stand in the middle of the other side of the court, close to the net. He will then hit shuttles towards as to simulate the SECOND shot, that is the one that comes after the serve. It could be a push, drive just a loose downward shot, a bad return (as in high). There are all kinds of variations you can do here. Just think of what kind of returns there are possible for your opponent to do after your side has served. This simulates the scenario that you are behind the one who is serving.

    8. Short drive. Short drive is basically doubles version of the net shot. Gentle push foward so it preferably goes flat first and then downwards as soon as it has passed the net. This pattern can be done so that it continues all the time, in other words you hit the shuttle back and forth.

    9. 2v2 attack and recieve. It's like the 2v2 all short, but you use smashes instead of sliced shots. The once who are defending need to try to make the attackers rotate.

    Hope these helps. I've got more if you want :P
    These are great! Thank you! I ll saved these somewhere so we can practice it.

    I'm just curious, but if you're smashing shouldn't your partner be covering you from the front. How does the shuttle fly to the middle?

    Simple. The shuttle goes in the middle if it fly pass the frontcourt player.

    Your partner can only cover at the front if only you made a good smash or the opponent made a bad return.

    Good returns have 2 kinds. The 1 that lifted to baseline again. High n deep. Another 1 is a drive which pass the frontcourt player n yet did not allow the backcourt player to smash again. You'll be forced to lift the shuttle

    I see. Thanks for the reply! I guess the middle could be when the opponents are standing front back and middle is referring to the area between the two person.

    Exactly. By my experience, which was a total beginner in 2011, once you know how to take the advantage of placing the shuttle in such position, your game is gonna improve a lot in instance.

    Thanks! I will try to experiment with that.
