    What I learned in my summer group lesson about receiving short service was this:

    i. A lower forward ready stance allows you to attack the shuttle early as it crosses the tape or at least flatline the trajectory of your return.

    ii. Also there's a different way of gripping the racquet depending on which side of the court you're receiving. Slightly forehand for the backhand court and vice versa. That would give you access to good attacking angles.

    iii. When on the ready, your racquet should be up and as near to the net as you can comfortably extend. When attacking the serve, forward movement to contact the shuttle should mainly come from the feet, and racquet swing be minimized as much as possible to reduce errors (the wider the swing, the more room for error); ideally to the point of using fingerpower and always be hitting downward -- that means racquet face has to be close to being horizontal.

    Thanks for the advice

    I hadn't thought of using a different grip for each side - I'll experiment when I next play

    Thumbs up Feet near the line

    It just shows the confidence. If you can afford to stand near the line, then you better be prepared. Of course the aim is to put pressure on opponents.

    Of course, but don't let it be a self defeating purpose.
