hi everyone, im new to this forum. just a little about myself for you:
my name is Jon, i live in central england, united kingdom, im 21 years old and ive been playing badminton for 5 years at club/league level so im not that bad. i was just wondering if anybody could shed some light on a few trick shots i could practice as i do like to have a bit of fun and throw the odd funny shot in here and there. i have watched the lastest dvd from badminton england but there arnt really any tutorials on how to do the shots. i would like to learn the racket behing the back shot, which grip do you use? any tips would be gratefull. if i can help you guys in anyway then just ask.

Cant say I'm an expert on trick shots since I've always preffered deception over trick shots. I find deception to be alot more useful. There is a good starters article here on deception somewhere...
When I started out with badminton I did the behind the back as often as I could, to my coaches frustation Anygrip will do as long as it works. Just do the swing and check out which gives you a good hit surface.
I recommend you to check out Peter Gade and some other danes and have a look at fantastic deception. Jonassen is also good and once he sent Xia into the opposite corner of where the shuttle were going...... f***in' awesome

I was practising with a really good player at my club 2 weeks ago, and twice I lured
him to the net then drove the shuttle to the baseline, and twice he ran down the
shuttle and returned it by hitting it between his legs with his back facing the net --
just like what the tennis players do. I was extremly surprised and impressed by

yeah i agree, deception is definately better and i never use trick shots in matches. when we play friendlies or train, myself and my mens doubles partner tend to have a mess around for a while - keeps the fun in the game, y'know, something different. im not so good at behind the back but one shot i do use and use well is to fake a smash - swing throught the shuttle missing it on purpose then quickly flicking it with the underarm shot so it drops over the net. impresses most and also if caught where shuttle goes over your head and youre facing the back of your court, switch grips and slice shuttle from one corner to the other, just drops over net. in a proper match i will do what it takes to win the match normally unless we're winning by a large margin and i may get cocky and throw the odd thing in. just makes the game more interesting.

it is very difficult to tell somebody how to play a trick shot. it all depends on the individuals racquet skills, how than can manipulate the racquet and change the trajectory of the shuttle.
best thing to do is just play arround with unconventional grips, body positions etc. while playing about with your mates.. apparently this is what danish kids do from an early age. they try new things, and are encouraged to do so..
try it out - it's a scream - and when you find something that works - make it consistent - trick shots are handy in matches... so long as you play them at the right time..

I think playing trick shots on your opponent maybe a bit risky ,but if you can manage a good trick shot ,it may send your opponent flying all the court .In fact ,I know some guys good at playing trick shots ,they said they had practised just one type of trick shot for a period of time and your foundation must be good enough .

the invers-slice is a simple trick that is very effective once you get the hang of it

I love trick shots. Can't do them but many players perform them on me.
I guess it's kinda fun to get oWNED.

I'm pretty sure that Sigit needs to do this stuff at his level but that at the level of my games, I should be able to prepare better or react fast enough to make a proper shot in these situations.

Trick shots techniqueOriginally Posted by Jono Frog
Behind the back(you are facing the net): I find backhand grip to be more appropriate, also I prefer tap action for this shot. It gives more power and correct racquet face. To be played when you made initial movement towards your forehand side and hence short of time. But don't make the mistake of waiting on your forehand side and using this shot to compensate for improper technique.
Between the legs(you are facing the net): Same as above.
Deliberately missing the shuttle:
Deliberately missing the shuttle: Use tap action and pretend I will hit a drive, deliberately miss the shuttle and play a drop shot.
Between the legs(back towards the net): I have seen it played by a good player, but when I try I keep hitting my leg with the racquet swing and sometimes even worse. I think you need to have a good jump for this.
I am also new to this forum and absolutely crazy about badminton.

I've been watching badminton trickshots on youtube and google videos and now i want to learn a couple of trick shts.
I want to learn how to do some! The shots need to able to be used in matches. In a position where you are coasting and can afford to lose a point.
I know you can watch it but some need some technical advise and that is why i put it in this forum. Thanks
