I have been playing for about 3 years now and when i began, my friends told me to begin with the basics. That actually has been some amazing advice. Ive played some school tournements and ive realized how simple it is to use someone's lack of basics against them. For example th,ere have been some individuals who have focused entirely on increasing power to their smashes. The simple solution was to just net. I feel that it is really important to get the basics down before doing anything else.

Basically, speed in badminton comes not from how fast you run, but how fast you see the shuttle. The best recovery is just a one-step recovery, whether it gets you to the center or not. However, this recovery happens automatically due to how you've hit the shot.

I might suggest that game with the 6 shuttles to the club coach. You could have a competitive game where both players get 6 shuttles and are given 1 minute to place or throw the shuttles over the net. The winner has the least number of shuttles on his or her side after the minute. That would help with court speed, getting down low to scoop shots and tactics. Also if you did that flat out for one minute you'd be stuffed.

yeah... i am kinda new and I find this stuff all really good stuff for me to work on. Thanks everyone.
On another note, I find a lot of people look down on badminton as a sport where all you do is stand around and hit a bird back and forth. I find it quite humourous when they go and get training, and find out how complex it is and about all the different aspects you have to master.

I agree with all of this post...
but I have one opinion that is left behind in this thread...
Serve is one of one of the basic that has to be mastered...
If we dont serve well, the more easier our opponent get the point...
Trust me...go to hundreds even thousands serve practice to reach perfection...
The most common serve is long and short serves...
The criteria ... Perfect long serve is a high and long serves,done by a forehand serve, it's very effective to use in a single match ... you must reach the maximum height,and to the very corner of the court ... if you hit the ball high...the ball will dove down sharply make it very hard for the opponent to launch an attack ...
The other one is short serve, very effective during double match...It's commonly done by backhand serve, the criteria for this serve is, the height must be as narrow as possible to the net edge...
the placement is as short as possible from the inner baseline...If you already good at it...you maybe try to aim it to the inner baseline corner to make it as difficult as possible for the opponent to launch an attack...
The serve technique must be perfected to win a match, cause it's a crucial one...it wouldnt matter if you have good smash...good stroke, good footwork...but lousy server..you wont score...
Keep on practicing...

I dont spend alot of time coaching beginners how to serve. An yes of course the serve is "the most important shot to do well", however every rally begins with a serve so this shot naturally gets practiced more than others. Theres plenty of time later to tweak the serve. More time needs to be spent in learning all the other shots. Unlike the serve all the other shots involve footwork and a variety of bodily skill. The other shots in my opinion take longer to learn to do well and must form the basis of the coaching sessions.

For that reason, I like to deal with the service early on in coaching. You don't need to spend much time on it, but it makes sense to teach it early. It's nearly always the first thing I teach, along with warm-up and cool-down ideas.
Do it once, get it right, then move on to something else.

I have one more thing that i think must be mastered by beginners..it is about the right grip to the racket..
It is also very immportant things to start..request the right grip from your trainer...

i wish i could. i want a coach but not many coaches in ipoh wants to coach a woman who's not really trying to be the world champion. i just want to play properly with the right technique. but as i said, a coach is hard to come by. and some are just too expensive. so i am relegated to learning through videos found here and elsewhere on the internet. and i tell you, it is hard to learn from a video.
