16 isn't to late to start playing, I started at 18 at university and haven't looked back since, although I'm not amazing compared to the 1st team I'm getting closer to the 2nd team now. That's only after 1year and 9 months so if you enjoy it and train lots any thing is possible (with coaching at times).

Just because you are 16 doesn't mean you are too late. You can join the international player at the age of 24 if you were good enough.16 isn't to late to start playing, I started at 18 at university and haven't looked back since, although I'm not amazing compared to the 1st team I'm getting closer to the 2nd team now.

I'm no expert but in my university they had group coaching sessions which I attended to learn the basics. I also joined the uni club. Personal coaching is too expensive for me Joining your club/team is definitely a good thing to do, just don't be disappointed if you lose, stick with it!

The ultimate truth
This is interseting, everyone have his idea on the game. This will lead to many views and ways of approach.
The truth is :
About the grip, there are many ways of gripping the racket. 1) the thumb grip, 2) the palm grip, 3) the side grip, 4) the underarm finger grip, 5) the forehand open grip.
NOTE : shortenning of the racket and lengthening of the racket is also techniques refering to the grip. Gripping the racquet too hard will kill the power produce as your suprinators/pronators freezes your wrist freezes and become less flexible.
That will reduce your whipping speed as velocity is been reduced.
About the footwork, First we must all understand that people loves badminton because they enjoy the sensation of hitting the shuttle, feeling the tension and the sound produced by it.
They do not enjoy doing repeated runs in the court. This type of footwork drill is already history. We are now in the 21st century and we are equipped with sport science and we are talking about mental skills.
What you all see in the website is never a training secret, because you train according on what you see and you can never find satisfaction and improvement. Sadly to say you could hardly apply during the competitive games. You will even lose more participants and eventually you will lose your business.
Teaching correct techniques and preparing their physical competency is important. What is more important is we must arrest the first bad habbit or incorrect movement the athlete makes or create during the training sessions under our coaching eyes.
If we are able to do this diligently we can then be able to produce good competitive flawless players at the shortest time.
The world top players are not flawless, it is just that there is no one better than them. This is where you coaches come in.
Make use of what you have been taught, coaching is an art. There are many colors you can chose, you can draw an orange and color it blue, are you game enough to do so?
Train smart and not train too hard. Hope all of you will have more athletes coming to you and you have more business.
You must be proud of yourself and carry yourself where ever you go as a sports coach. If you do not have confidence in yourself and hide away from the public how are you able to instill confidence to your athletes.
This is the ultimate challenge and the ultimate truth.

- focus on the correct grip - read the grip guide in BC -got it i think.......
- focus on the correct stroke - ask a coach to show you. -check :]
- focus on footwork- check kindaa.....
- focus on fitness - jog/swim/bike - or do footwork drills - working on it because im like a fat kid who plays singles need to lose some weight so i can move faster and more endurance, and dont get under estimated :]
DO NOT FOCUS ON:
- trick shots - stop learning those strange shots. -uhhhh the coach taught me... he said it might be helpful so i just use it in games.... idk u can't do them -.-"
- fancy style - i have so many times seen beginners with really fancy looking hitting style but then they miss the shuttle. keep it simple. - well uhhh no one taught me the correct form of hitting so i just watch the varsity players and copy with no one to advise and correct me so i dont really know :[
- strength training - leave this after you have learned your basic strokes - uhhh i never thought of that :]
- expensive racket - you will most likely be wasting money - **** i got like the second best racket in the market now [AT 900 tech] and imma freakin JV :[ crack! but im getting better :] ....i hope.....

I have proper grip, strokes, and fitness down. Still need to work on my footwork a bit... o_O
I've never had a fancy style or done much in the way of trick shots. In fact, I've been called boring because I was practicing drops, clears, etc while my friend practiced hitting the bird between his legs... lol.
As for strength training and an expensive racket... um... I started working out, and I own a Victor Super Waves 33 Power ($300). I got it for only $100 though, so it's not so bad.
