This may sound fundamental but im a newbie and i have already done my best with the search function so bear with me.
My query is can someone clarify the meaning of shot description for me? ie what is push shots, drives, spinning net shots, in fact a description of anything other than clears, smashes, drop shots, would be great. Im reading posts and getting confused with the terminology.

Best thing to do as a beginner?
IMO is...................... *drum roll*
have fun playing badminton,
because if you don't enjoy it you won't play it.
Enjoyment > Basics & Technique > anything else unimportant.
And if possible, start early.
Badminton generally becomes more fun the further you get into it.

As for me, most important is to learn defence/return/stroke, and not forget about service... a good/clear/tidy service is most important. Another one is, TRY DO NOT PLAY WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE SAME LEVEL WITH YOU. LOOK FOR A SENIOR/ADVANCE/INTERMIDEATE PLAYER, PLAY WITH THEM, TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHICH ONE IS MOST IMPORTANT, POWER OR TACTICAL?...anyhow, MOST IMPORTANT AMONG ALL....ENJOY THE GAME!!!!!!!1

As i learn, trick shot is every important, some people see is cannot use in the real game,
here is some tips from my 23 years of experience,
i use to trick my oponent left and right, i use my body.
front and back is use my movement speed, fast and slow.
When u totally master trick shot, is very useful.
first, learning trick shot, wrist and hand has to be steady. if not trick will be trick back.

The advice on this thread is very useful, thanks. I never progressed beyond beginner's level as a child, and perhaps not playing for nearly 10 years is a blessing in disguise in that I have forgotten lots of things, and can go with the correct basics now. Hopefully with what I learn from this forum, Han Jian's book and badmintonbible.com I can make progress
